2159508 - Workflow removed from role, but action is not restricted

Symptom

Removing a workflow from a role still allows the user/admin rights to perform the action

Environment

  • SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. System Admin > Security > Role Management > Edit Role
  2. Select workflows tab
  3. Remove action (in this case: Search > Search Assignment Profile)
  4. When using the Admin assigned to this role, Going to User > Assignment Profile, should show a blank screen.

Cause

When an admin/user has multiple roles, all workflows grant access.

Resolution

  • Make sure all roles assigned to admin/users do not have grant access to workflows you do not want the user to have.
  • If one role has a workflow and the others do not, access is still granted.
