2477290 - Certain Library Permissions Missing from Custom User Roles


Administrators using custom user roles may notice that these two permissions can no longer be selected to add them to the custom roles. The permissions that are missing in the custom role are:

  • Access Browse Library
  • Access Simple Library Search


SAP SuccessFactors Learning


The permissions "Access Browse Library" and "Access Simple Library Search" were retired in past versions of the system and this is why they are no longer supported and therefore cannot be added to custom roles.


In order to allow the users to browse the library, the pre-requisites user permissions are "Access Advanced Library Search" and "Access Calendar of Classes". This is expected since the "Access Browse Library" and "Access Simple Library Search" permissions were retired.

Certain Roles depending on when they were created might have the retired permissions but it won't have an impact on the user.

Please Note: The workflow "Access Advanced Catalog/Library Search" is also a requirement to view user Recommendations Tile.
