Historical Placement Portlet is not getting updated with the ratings coming from the Calibration Session in SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Proxy as any Manager;
  2. Navigate to the People Profile and select any direct report;
  3. Depending on where you have the block configured, navigate to Scorecard or Talent Profile;

  1. Look for the Historical Matrix Grid block (PERFORMANCE vs. POTENTIAL);

  1. The ratings are coming from the calibration session and the Performance (sysoverallperformance) as well as the Potential (sysoverallpotential) are getting updated but the Talent 9-Box Block/Portlet (Historical Matrix Portlet) is not getting updated accordingly;
  2. If trying to update any Potential or Performance Portlet manually and saving it, the rating are getting updated in Talent 9-Box Portlet that means calibrated ratings are not getting synchronized;

  1. This Issue will happen only when the ratings come from Calibration session.


This is expected behavior. There is an automated job called 'Regenerate Matrix Placement History' that updates the 'Historical Matrix Placement Portlet'. However, if ratings come from the Calibration Session then the automated Regenerate Matrix Placement job does not run automatically.


Contact your Implementation Partner to manually create the job "Regenerate Matrix Placement History" in order to synchronize the Historical Matrix Placement Portlet with the Calibrated ratings.
