2086509 - Permissions - Private CDP Goals Showing In PM Form - private-access permission - Career Development


You have Development goals that are set as private. These are showing on a performance form when we want them hidden. It is working correctly with regular goals.


SAP SuccessFactors Career Development Planning


The element private-access only applies within the development or standard goal plan. 


Currently if these goals are pulled into a PM form, roles other than E will by default now be able to see the goals.

To prevent this you can take 2 approaches.

  1. You have 2 goal plans, one that is used by employees for sole purpose of storing private goals so these will never be pulled into a PM form, and another for the other development goals that you will want to use in PM forms.
  2. You set up the development goal plans with categories, and designate a specific category that employees must put all private goals into. Then on the PM forms, you can add category filters to include or exclude certain categories on the PM form.

             For example: A PM form might have a goal section linking to a CDP plan that has various categories. In the PM template you define which categories you want to show or exclude.





 This cannot be added or changed on live forms and must be implemented on the master template before you launch your forms.
