  • The Business Configuration UI (BCUI) for Succession Data Model (SDM) is a powerful Admin tool that allows administrators to maintain certain elements of the SDM using their end-user UI, instead of asking SuccessFactors staff to maintain these elements in the XML configuration files.

You will find the BCUI useful if you are a customer that makes frequent use cases such as changing labels, changing the display sequence of fields, adding or changing translations, changing the visibility of fields, making fields required, country specific fields and also adding custom fields.
