2692280 - How to rename Successor and Nomination portlets


Unable to rename the 'Successors' or 'Current Nominations' portlet through Configure People Profile in the Admin Centre


  • SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile/ People Profile

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Admin Centre
  2. Go to Configure People Profile
  3. Identify the 'Successors' or 'Current Nominations' porlet blocks
  4. Unable to rename the 'Successors' or 'Current Nominations' portlet


The labels associated to these portlets are configured in the Succession Data Model XML. The default label for the 'Successors' portlet is 'Successor Portlet' and the default label for the 'Current Nominations' portlet is 'Nomination Portlet'.


To change the name of the portlet which is diplayed in the People Profile, you can change the labels associated to the portlets in the Succession Data Model XML for sysScoreCardSuccessorPortlet and sysScoreCardNominationPortlet.



If you do not have access to Provisioning you can also make the changes through the Manage Business Configuration tool in the Admin Center.

Note: This is the only configuration available for these portlets, you cannot add or remove fields for these portlets.
