  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing


Advanced Analytics can be accessed from within RCM without the need for a separate URL.

Important note on the Deprecation of the legacy Advanced Analytics UI (WebFocus) Q4 2019

  • With the new simplified user interface for Recruiting Marketing Advanced Analytics available, the legacy WebFocus interface has been sunset with release b1911 (December 7th) and is no longer accessible.
  • Customers must grant themselves access to the new tool via Role Based Permissions as described below.

Note: Users who have been granted RBP permissions will be able to see the AA tab but will not see the data until the permissions have been replicated on the RMK side. These are updated via the Recruiter Synch which only runs once a day

Provisioning Prerequisites

Company Settings

  • Recruiting Marketing 
  • Enable Job Marketing
  • Recruiter SSO must be configured
  • Enable Career Site Builder
  • Enable Candidate Account Simplification

IMPORTANT: If any of the prerequisites are not met, contact your Implementation Partner.


Access is permission based so users must be granted the relevant permissions

Advanced Analytics Access

Follow the steps below to grant access to Advanced Analytics:

  1. Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles
  2. Select a Role > Permissions
  3. Click on Recruiting Permissions
  4. Select Recruiter RMK SSO Permission
  5. Select Recruiting Marketing Advanced Analytics Permissions
  6. If applicable, you can grant access to drill to details with the option Access Advanced Analytics with Details
  7. Advanced Analytics link will be available in the Recruiting screen


Note: Granting the relevant permissions is not enough to provide access to the Advanced Analytics data. Advanced Analytics must be implemented for the data to be populated. The implementation of Advanced Analytics requires the engagement of SAP Professional Services or an Implementation Partner

Why are there differences between the old interface (standalone URL) and the Advanced Analytics Recruiting interface?

  • The move to the new interface allowed Product Management to clean up the interface and remove deprecated reports. This is why some of the options do not appear in the new interface
  • The aim was to simplify and consolidate the UI. The new interface is not meant to be a screen for screen equivalent of the old interface
  • The "business value" was preserved. Users should make sure they familiarize themselves with the new interface before contacting Product Support to log a missing functionality
