2464240 - Behaviors - Ad hoc report does not display mapped behaviors - Performance Management


  • The form's competency section has visible behaviors
  • Ad hoc reporting will display blanks for the forms behavior columns


SuccessFactors HCM Cloud Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a Completed form; it should have visible behaviors in the competency section
  2. Create an ad hoc report that uses that form's template as a data source
  3. Include any of the behavior-related columns under the Competency tab in Columns (Behavior Name, Behavior ID, Behavior Description, etc.)
  4. The ad hoc report will show blanks for all the behavior-related columns


This can happen when the competency section is configured with use-behavior="false", lock-behavior-content="false". If both these attributes are set to "false", then behaviors mapped to the competency section will not be saved to the feedback table, which is where ad hoc reports retrieve data.


use-behavior="true" and lock-behavior-content="true" must be configured in the competency section's attributes. Please file a Software Change Request(SCR) with Cloud Product Support.

NOTE: an SCR will only make changes to the template, and any forms launched after the fact. Changes will not be applied retroactively to already-launched forms. Ask your support engineer to evaluate whether the changes can be pushed to live forms using our dynamic form tool, as not all competency section attributes are supported. These changes cannot be done at Signature or Completed stages.
