On instances using Role-Person or MDF Position Nomination Methods, the tool Position Set Up is not available in Admin Center.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession Management


As of Q3 2019 (b1908) release, the option Position Management: Position Set Up in Admin Center is only available on instances using Legacy Position Nomination Method and with necessary permissions to access the page, granted.

This tool is designed to define the Key Position/Position Criticality configuration for the instances using Legacy Position Nomination Method. Instances using Role-Person or MDF Position Nomination Method, this option is no longer available, as Key Position is not used for Role-Person nomination method, and for MDF Position nomination method, this setting is defined directly in the Position object.

For instances using Legacy Position nomination method, where the tool is not showing in Admin Center, make sure the permission "Position Set up" under Manage Succession is granted for users on Role-Based Permissions.

Complete information on how to configure Key Position/Position Criticality for Legacy and MDF Positions, is available in the wiki page Succession Org Chart - Highlighting Key/Critical Positions.
