2332851 - Manage Goal Data - Users cannot see translated goals even after uploading these goals in different languages.


  • Although the US English library is automatically included with GM, you may have to reload it in order to get the translated version to show correctly.
  • Upon uploading a translated goal library, users cannot see translated goals according to their system’s language.


  • Successfactors HCM Suite
  • BizX Platform
  • Goals
  • Goal Plan
  • Goal Import


  • In order for translated libraries to show, you need to add the goal library ID to the xml in addition to the name.
  • For example, from <obj-library name="SucessFactors Library"> to <obj-library name="SucessFactors Library" id="600001">.



  • It is required a XML change in Goal Plan’s code and there are two simple ways to make the change:
    1. In general, all custom changes that you cannot complete yourself via Admin Tools, can be delivered via our Solution Consultants and SAP Partners.
    2. This is a supported XML Change that Product Support can deliver, please follow the steps to request it in the document “2250190 - SCR Form: XML Software Change Request for Goal Plans - Goal Management” and kindly raise an incident.
