Reproducing the Issue

When you open your Career Path in the Development module you see Career Paths added by others as well as your own



This is expected behavior


  • The Career Path is intended to be an Admin tool for HR to create Career Paths that people can use while in the Career Worksheet.
  • For Permissions on the Career Paths V1 & V2, please refer to the "Implementing Career Development Planning" guide section 4.7.10 on our SAP Help Portal


Mapping Career Paths to Job Roles

To view which Career Paths are mapped to a particular Job Role:

  1. Click on the Job Role Tab in the Career Path:

Career Path search for Job Role.jpg

    2. Here you can see how many Career Paths are mapped to a Job Role.
    3. You can also search for the Job Role directly in the search bar (on right, in screenshot above).
    4. This will show you which Career Paths are mapped to that Job Role by clicking on the dropdown:

  • SAP Note: The tabs inside the Career Path - 'Career Path' & 'Job Roles' are not permissionable. So once you have permission to access the Career Path, you will have access to both tabs and cannot hide one or the other. 
  • SAP Note II: With Career Path v2 enabled, it allows you to access Career Path under Development. You can create and maintain career paths there. You can also import and export Career Paths via Admin Center > Import and Export feature.
  • SAP Note III: The icons on the role node are there by default and cannot be removed:

Career Path View/ Display

Depending on the way a Career Path is configured - e.g. amount of nodes and their relationship to each other -  the view after saving can differ from edit mode. There is an enhancement open to keep the same view after saving, but no implementation date has been confirmed for this.
