Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to SuccessFactors
  2. Go to Admin Center
  3. Set User Permission > Manage permission Roles
  4. Select the role you want to change > Click on Permission...
  5. Go to the section you want to edit the permissions
  6. See the permissions in View Current and View History grayed out, unable to edit it



  • The permissions View Current, View History will be grayed out when any permission succeeding them (Edit/Insert, Correct, Delete) are enabled.
  • This is because as per design logic, a user can Edit/Insert, Correct, Delete the field only when they can view the field and its History page in first place which means view Current/History should be enabled for it.


  • This is expected behavior.
  • To enable RBP for View Current, View History please disable the succeeding permissions on the right:
