2549918 - Edit icon (pencil icon) in form still visible even when there is no edit goal permission - Performance Management

Symptom

In the goal or development goal section of the form, the edit icon or pencil icon still appears even if the user does not have permission to edit the goal. Is it possible to hide this pencil icon?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Launch a form for a user who does not have permission to edit the goals in their Goal or Development goal Plans.
  2. In the goal or development goal section, the user can still see the edit icon (pencil icon) next to the goal name.

  3. When user clicks on the pencil icon, edit goal dialog pops up and user does not have permission to edit the goal.

Cause

This is currently working as designed when section permission is "enabled" for the user.

Resolution

As per present design, the pencil icon is rendered on the basis of Section permission. If section permission is "enabled" for the user, the pencil icon would be available in order for the user to view the goal details or fields. So regardless whether employee has permission to edit the goal or not, they can still click on the edit icon to view additional goal information. Currently there is no available option to hide the pencil icon.
