2072234 - Permissions - Column-level permissions for goal table fields - Goal Management


Table column permissions allow you to get more granular and define permissions for columns in the table.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management


  • You can apply permissions to individual columns in fields like Tasks, Milestones, and Calculated Ratings, where the information is displayed in a table format. For example, in the Tasks field, you can make the Target Date column and Task column editable by a manager but read-only to the direct report.
  • To add column-level permissions, this will require a configuration change in your goal plan template xml. For this type of configuration changes, please reach out to an SAP Partner to update your goal plan template. You may also refer to the Goal Management Implementation Guide.

  • Please note that the current behaviour for Team Goal & Group Goal, although it does not consist with personal goal, when you grant write access to the column field of a metric-lookup-table, the specified role should be able to edit the entire metric-look-up table with write permission giving them edit/write access to some if not all columns of the table. This is by-design behaviour.
