2799579 - LMS: What controls who is displayed in the Course recommendation search in LMS?


When a User wants to recommened a course to another User, what defines what other User's are displayed in their search?


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access LMS as an end User.
  2. Click on a Course.
  3. See "Recommend >" to another User Option.


Navigate to System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Search and find "restrictUserPeerSearchByOrg".

Although it is used for more than just recommendations, it controls whether your “recommenders” can find “recommendees” inside their own organization only or both inside and outside their organization. Set to true (own org only) or false (entire user base).
