2377972 - LMS: Assignment Profile rules don't work when same attribute is more than once


When an Assignment Profile is configured to use the same attribute more than once in a rule group, users are not selected correctly.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create/Edit Assignment Profile.
  2. Click Manage Rules.
  3. Create a rule using an attribute (ex. Alternate Job Code).
  4. Add another rule (within the same rule group) using the same attribute.



The assignment profile rule group is using the same attribute more than once with the same value (operator), which will not pull any data back.


As of b1602 release, Assignment Profile rule groups will allow the same attribute to be added more than once.

Adding multiple values within a single rule will create an "OR" relationship, but adding a new rule within that rule group with the same attribute but different value will create an "AND" relationship.

However, the feature is not designed to work when the same attribute is used multiple times with the same values, such as:

Assign to users:

Alt Job Code (matches) Alternate Job Code A

- AND -

Alt Job Code (matches) Alternate Job Code B

- AND -

have alternate job code C

The feature is designed to work with different values (i.e. "Does Not Match" and "Does Not Contain"), such as:

Alternate Job Code DOES NOT CONTAIN "ABC"

- AND -

Alternate Job Code IS NOT EMPTY
