Reproducing the Issue

JPB Behavior - 

JDM Behavior - 

The feature "Browse Job Roles" in Career Worksheet will show all configured roles in your families and role. We cannot filter what roles we can see in this section.

It is not possible to hide or remove the "Browse Job Roles" block in the Career Worksheet. This block is hardcoded in the system. The same is true for the My Current Roles, and Job Roles I'm Considering tabs.

Note 1: By default the Career Worksheet displays all Job Roles in the system - both active and inactive. Only deleted roles do not show.

The 'Suggested Roles' tab can be hidden via RBP > Career Development Planning > deselect "Career Worksheet Suggested Roles Access Permission"

Note 2: With JPB enabled, if you see a star * next to the Job Role title:

This means that there is an issue with one or both of the following:

  1. the translations not being maintained for each language. Please review all translations in Manage Job Profile Content from Admin Center and make sure there are translations for all languages, including English US.
  2. the migration from JDM to JPB has not been completed. Please refer to KBA 2276692 - Clarification on Migration option from JDM to JPB 

Role Name Display:

The role node cannot accommodate long role names. Longer role names will be cut to fit the role node. To see the full label users must hover their mouse over the role name:
