Performance Management process is allowing the form to move to the next step in the route map even though the required fields are not completed.

SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Performance Management form
  2. Set the Required Field Permissions
  3. Launch the form
  4. Send the form to next step to check validation
  5. PM form does not validate the required field permission


The reason why the form is allowing to move to the next step and bypass the required field permission is because the minimum value was set to -1. Please note that once this is set to -1 it will bypass the required field permission and will accept 0 character.


Modify the Performance Management template and change the minimum value from -1 to 1. Please note that these changes will not reflect on all the PM forms that were already launched. This will only apply to newly launched forms.
