Symptom

  • How do I control the user's visibility on Company Org Chart?
  • Is that possible to restrict the visibility only on specific users?
  • How to I permit managers to see only their team in Org Chart?
  • How to avoid a manager to se her/his manager but not the other manager's direct reporters?

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Resolution

These mentioned visibility perspectives can be controlled through the Role-Based Permissions settings.

The Company Org Chart offers a hierarchical view of the organization, which can be drilled up or down through the Up One Level or Org Chart node buttons, of any user who has direct/matrix reports.

In the Org Chart, the user will be able to view only these persons who are included in viewer's target population in RBP settings.

  •  To manage which group of people anyone can see in Org Chart, it's just adjust the target population.

    • The KBA 2116024 brings further guidance on how to manage target populations.

Either, to control if the user will be able to view the EE'/hierarchies on the Org chart, the following permission must be managed in the user's permission role:

  • General User Permission > Company Info Access > User Search;
    • The KBA 2116024 brings further guidance on how to manage Permission Roles.

Finally, to control whether or not a user can access in Org Chart tab, it's just necessary to manipulate the following permissions:

  • General User Permission > Company Info Access > Succession Org Chart Permission;
    • The KBA 2116024 brings further guidance on how to manage Permission Roles.

Note: The visibility of the total report count in OrgChart will not be adjusted to the count of users that the user can see, it will remains the count of total reports.
