2360552 - After deleting a question you are redirected to the Question Library search page which shows the deleted question


  • After opening a Question from the Question Library search results then deleting it, the user is returned to the Question Library search results which displays the deleted question
  • This may also occur in other sections of the Learning Management System, such as with quizzes


  • SAP SuccessFactors
  • Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login as an Administrator
  2. Navigate to Content > Question Library
  3. Run a search
  4. Check the box next to a question & click the Edit button
  5. Delete it
  6. Note you’re returned back to the search results that still show the deleted question
  7. If you attempt to Edit the deleted question, a "new question" window is launched


  • This is expected behavior for certain parts of the LMS, such as Quizzes and Question Library
  • The current architecture does not return to refreshed search results for performance reasons when the back link is clicked


  • A workaround is to re-run the search results after going back
  • Also consider creating an Enhancement Request for Development to consider for future releases
