2149104 - LMS - Approvers Not displaying as expected when going in the approval submission from the user side


User sees "select user for Approval" rather than the names of the users who are responsible for approving the course.





  • SAP HCM SuccessFactors suite
  • Learning Management System (LMS)


The User who is requesting for Approval is in a different domain than the domain over which Approvers have control.


The user who is requesting Approval belongs from a different Domain than the Domain which the Approvers have control over.

There are 2 ways to resolve this:

1. If the user is in a wrong domain, just go to the user's profile and change it to match the domain of the Approver

2. Go to the Approver's user profile, then go to Related >> More, then go to Approval Roles. Click on "Control Domains" >> Add the correct domain

Once the user’s Domain is as desired, then the user will see the Approver’s names rather than “Select User for Approval” as per the screen below.
