2308511 - Unable to add inactive item to prerequisites


As an admin, I am unable to add inactive items to item prerequisites.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM suite
  • Learning Management System
  • System admin
  • Items > Prerequisites

Reproducing the Issue

1. Edit an item

2. Under Related > Prerequisites > add > search inactive item


  • When an item is made inactive it means that it is no longer in use. 
  • It is necessary for an item to be active to be added as prerequisite because users must complete the prerequisites before taking the actual course. 
  • If an item is inactive it will not be shown on the users learning plan and therefore they won't be able to complete it.


As per the current system design inactive items will not be added as prerequisites.
