Previous version of a revised Item cannot be found in the Library.


SAP Successfactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new revision for an existing item.
  2. Choose to not inactivate the previous revision.
  3. Search for that item in the Library. User only finds the new revision.


It is a normal system behavior to show only the new item revision to ensure that only the most recent one is accessible for users.

In Learning Administration side, it's possible to see that the Libraries were automatically removed from the previous version.


Instead of revising the items, please evaluate the option to create a copy of it.
