SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile


If the field/portlet is not visible in the Employee Profile, it is likely that the logged-in user does not have permissions to view the field/portlet for the user whose Employee Profile is being accessed.


To grant permissions for the users to view/edit a field or portlet in the Employee Profile, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Set User Permissions > Manage Permission Roles;
  2. Select the Permission Role you would like to modify (depending on the granted and target population);
  3. Click the "Permission" button > select "Employee Data" tab > enable View and/or Edit permission for the desired Employee Profile fields or background elements > click on "Done";
  4. Click on "Save Changes".
