Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to LMS Admin
  2. Navigate to System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > LMS_ADMIN > set enableitemrecommendations=true
  3. Navigate to Users > Assignment Profile > Search and Open any assignment Profile > You will only see "Recommended Items" under related


This is because there are missing workflows in the Role assigned to the Admin who is logged into LMS Admin


  1. Navigate to System Admin > Security > Role Management
  2. Search for the Role assigned to you or Admins who should get access to "Recommended Programs"
  3. Select Workflows and click "Add one or more from the list"
  4. Add the following workflows:
    • User Management
      • "View Assignment Profile Recommended Programs"
      • "Edit Assignment Profile Recommended Programs" 
    • Search
      • "Search Program"
      • The green plus symbol (+) will not appear in the Recommended Programs related list if this workflow is not provided
  5. Click "Apply Changes"
  6. Now when you go back to assignment profile you should be able to see "Recommended Programs" as well

*If the Recommended Programs option is still not visible on the Assignment Profile, then make sure Recommended Programs is set to display under Record Configuration (System Admin >> Configuration >> Record Configuration >> Assignment Profile >> Related Info).
