SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an Ad Hoc Report Performance Management Domain
  2. Try to fetch Deleted Competency


  • Competencies and competency libraries may have restrictions that limit how much you can work with them. 
  • Never delete a competency that has been used in the past! 
  • Deleting competencies that have been used will lead to issues on historical forms. 
  • We recommend you never delete a competency but rather just hide ones you no longer use. 
  • When you reimport a deleted competency the system sill assign it a new ID that will be different than the original so is seen as a new competency, not the original.


  1. If you delete competencies it cannot be undone. 
  2. Broken live forms will need to be deleted and relaunched. 
  3. Historical forms and reports will break as now the master competency it was linked to is gone. 
  4. Support is unable to undo or fix these issues. 
  5. Please have a look into the following KBA article thoroughly and read carefully in "About competency status setting" section mentioned in the KBA- 2086107 - All about Competency Libraries - JDM 1.0 - Competencies
