How are we going to assign the role-based permissions necessary for all mentoring administrators so they can create or manage programs?


SuccessFactors Career Development and Planning


Pre-requisites: Enable Mentoring Program (Provisioning/Upgrade Center)


  1. Go to Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles .
  2. Choose the role or roles to assign access and then click Permission.
  3. Go to the Administrator Permissions section and select the following:
    •  Manage Career Development > Manage Mentoring Programs

    •  Metadata Framework > Admin Access to MDF oData API

    •  Metadata Framework > Read/Write Permission on Metadata Framework

    •  Manage User > Manage Employee Dynamic Groups

      This permission allows you to create employee groups for use with mentoring programs.

  4. Go to the User Permissions section and select the following:
    •  Career Development Planning > Mentoring Programs Access Permission

      This permission provides users access to the Mentoring tab under Development.

    •  Employee Data > Last Name > View

    •  General User Permission > Company Info Access > User Search  (This permission allows users to search for mentees and mentors.)

      • Note: You can restrict mentor and mentee searches by setting a target population.
