Reproducing the Issue

In a Calibration session, clicking on the Action Item icon should show a popup containing the Source Rating Information link.


This is a new feature available as of the Q3 2018 Release.  You can directly access the rating information of a Calibration Subject from the action menu in Calibration Sessions.

The information displayed is retrieved from the Employee Profile data at session activation.


  • You are using Fiori Calibration UI to view the Source Rating Information item. (Source Rating Information is not supported in Legacy UI)
  • The data source you defined for your Calibration Session template is Employee Profile.
    • The user that wants to view the Source Rating Information must also have permission to that information within Employee Profile through Role Based Permissions (Admin Center>>Manage Permission Roles>>"Choose Permission Role">>Employee Views)
  • If the data source of your Calibration Session template is not Employee Profile, the Source Rating Information option does not appear in the action menu.

To enable Fiori Resyling for Calibration:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Calibration;
  2. Select Manage Calibration Settings > Global Settings tab;
  3. Enable "Enable Fiori Restyling for Calibration".


Once Fiori UI is enabled for Calibration, the Source Rating information should appear in the Action Items popup menu:

NOTE: Should you after Q3 release not be able to either display the rating source or open a calibration session, despite having the permissions set up as above, please grant to the Facilitator and Calibration session owners either "Manage Calibration Sessions" or if you don't want to see a change in the UI "OData API Calibration Export" under "Manage Calibration".
