2736122 - Legacy Development Goal Changed to Completed Even Though Learning Activities are Still 'In Progress'


Users can change the status of a legacy development goal to Completed even though the associated learning activities are still in progress (any status different from Completed or Locked).

Note: This behavior is not applicable to systems using Latest Goal Management (UXR).


  • SAP SuccessFactors Career Development Planning
  • SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to system
  2. Navigate to Home dropdown > Goals
  3. Select the Development Goal tab
  4. Select a development plan
  5. Locate a development goal with learning activities > in the bottom left-hand corner, change the status to Completed
  6. The status is updated even though learning activities are not Completed or Locked


The system does not meet the requirements for checking if the Learning Activity statuses are completed. There are three requirements for this special behavior to work correctly:

  • "Transcript" (CDP-LMS Integration) is enabled for the instance.
  • The Learning Activity template has a "status" field and one of the ENUM values is "Completed". 
  • Development Goals template has a "state" field and one of the ENUM values is "Completed".
