SucessFactors: Job Profile Builder (JDM 2.0)


Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Admin Tools.
  • Under Company Settings click on 'Configure Object Definition'.
  • Select Job Profile
  • Click on Take Action and select Make Correction.
  • Do the required changes and scroll to bottom of screen.
  • Under Security select "Yes" for Secured column and Select "Manage Job & Skill Profile Visibility" for Permission Category column.
  • Click on  SAVE


  • Error message:




None of the below module would be enabled at the backend:

  •  Time Off (Absence Management). 
  •  Position Management.
  •  Succession Management



Job Profile Builder configuration is dependent on Succession module i.e. when JBP is enabled, all position objects should be available in the instance.

We need to enable "Succession Management" to successfully save Job Profile Object Definition.
