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


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


SAP SuccessFactors Learning - 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 when navigating to User > Assignment Profile, it should show a blank screen.


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


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 then access is still granted.
