  • SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to the LMS as a user
  2. Go to the catalog search (Browse all courses)
  3. Observe the button is available to only search for specific languages and/or currencies


This is an expected behavior.


As per the feedback provided by our Development team, it is not possible to turn off or disable the Language and Currency filter in the catalog search currently in the LMS.

Should customers want to have this behavior changed in future version of the LMS, we recommend creating an enhancement request describing the desired behavior.

Additional information:

The setting "expandCatalogSearchBarFilters=" (in System Admin: Configuration > System Configuration > CATALOG) is not meant to disable this filter but allows specifying whether or not the filters are expanded by default for the users.

This setting that specifies if the filter is expanded or not is sticky for each user. Once a user expands or contracts the filters, it will remain that way until the user changes it. The configuration has no impact at this point as the user selection overrides that setting.
