2400345 - Unlimited Exam getting locked before users completing it


  • Exams created with unlimited attempts are getting locked before users complete it.


  • Learning Management System


  • Even though the exam was created with unlimited attempts, there is also a maximum time set for the exam.
  • The configuration in the Item Level says "Leave the duration blank for an untimed exam. A timed exam prevents users from resuming an exam.". So, if the user closes the Exam screen before finishing it, exam will get locked.



  • In this case, system is working as expected. You may submit an Enhancement Request in the SuccessFactors community, in case you want to change the system behavior.
  • To raised an Enhancement, please follow this KBA.
