Reproducing the Issue

  • Admin Center > Email Notification Templates > "Unverified Login Help Request" is by default hard coded to enabled.
  • The same email address is associated with multiple users in the system.

1. Go to SFSF login page 
2. Click on Forgot Password - Enter Email Address
3. Expected results: Gets email with subject SuccessFactors Login Help Request: User credentials could not be verified. 
4. Current behaviour: Email is not received and we cannot reset the password.


  • 'Unverified Login Help Request' is always enabled in Email Notification Templates Settings and is not editable.
  • In the backend, this data could be overwritten to 'disabled'.
  • Our Engineering Team are aware of this.
  • There is already a request to remove the hard-coded logic of enabled template, and show the real information in frontend.


  • As a work-around, should you experience this issue and require for the notification to be re-enabled please open an incident with Customer Support.
  • With customer approval, we can request Engineering team to enable the feature manually in the backend by running a script.
