Some of the competencies are locked in Manage Job Profile Builder Content and cannot be pulled up in other modules


SuccessFactors - People Profile / Job Profile Builder

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Manage Job Profile Content > Select a Role, you will see that there are competencies with a lock icon



The competencies with locked icon are mapped on a Family level


You can map your competencies either on a Family or a Role level.

Mapping your competencies on a Family level means that all of the Roles in that Family caters the said mapped competencies.

While mapping your competencies on a Role level, this means that the competencies mapped to that Role may be applicable only to that Role.

Competencies with the lock icon is due to the competencies were mapped to that role may be applicable only to that Role.



In the example below, the Role: Multimedia Level2 belongs to the Family Multimedia Group. You will see 4 competencies with the lock icon beside it.

These are the same competencies displayed above, mapped on a Family level.

The competency without the lock icon is mapped on a Role level, hence specific for Multimedia Level2 role only.
