2475593 - Goal Plan state "Lock/Un-Lock" options not visible for Direct Reports - Goal Management


Managers are not able to see "Lock/Un-Lock" option to change the state for their Direct Reports in Goal Plan.


SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the instance as a Manager;
  2. Proxy as his Direct Reports;
  3. Navigate to Goal Management tab;
  4. Check the Goal plan to see "Approve/Un-approve or Lock/Un-lock" option for his Direct reports.


Login user's locale must match at least one locale value of the <action-label> list defined in <obj-plan-state> tag.

Otherwise goal plan page would NOT know which <action-label> to display.


Define a different action-label for each locale - see below, the action-label for en_GB differs to he en_US action-label:

Example Configuration:

      <obj-plan-state id="unlocked" default="true">
      <state-label>Not Approved</state-label>
      <action-label lang="en_US">Un-Approve</action-label>
<action-label lang="en_GB">Un-Approve UK</action-label>
