2625743 - LMS: Picker in Assignment Profile 'Managed Rules' for Non-Referenced User Custom Column


  • Referenced custom culomn was changed to non-referenced.
  • Picker still appears in Assignment Profile 'Managed Rules' for operators 'Matches' and 'Does not match'


SAP Successfactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to LMS as admin.
  2. Create a referenced user custom column. (Admin > System Admin > Custom Columns > User)
  3. Create or edit an existing assignment profile. (Admin > Users > Assignment Profiles)
  4. Click 'Manage Rules'.
  5. Under 'Set up Rules', click the 'Select Attribute' drop down menu.
  6. Select the custom column that you created, then select 'Matches' or 'Does not Match'.
  7. Observe that the picker is enabled. That is expected.
  8. Now, go back to your custom column. # Remove all reference IDs and apply changes.
  9. Deselect 'Referenced' and apply changes.
  10. Then, go back to the AP rules.
  11. Click the 'Select Attribute' drop down menu.
  12. Select the custom column that you created, then select 'Matches' or 'Does not Match'.
  13. Observe that the picker is still enabled. This should not be the case, it should be a free-text field.


This is an expected behavior.

Any change(s) on user custom columns are being reflected in Assignment profile rules only after Assignment Profile Synchronization.


Synchronize the AP by either:

  1. Running the Assignment Profile Synchronization APM; or
  2. Clicking the 'Synchronize' option in the AP under 'Action'.
