Reproducing the Issue

You wish to implement/create Navigation Groups and Assign Navigation Targets in the context of Mashups.


  • SuccessFactors migrated to PP3 UI5 based screen for better User Experience.

  • It has created compatibility issue with Legacy UI Integration solution offered via “Navigation Group/Navigation Target”.

  • Hence this old solution is deprecated now and replaced with new Custom Navigation solution provided by EC Platform team which is compatible with PP3 based UI model of SF.


This is currently NOT supported and this would be documented in our standrad guide with 1908 release.

SAP recommends to use UI Integration Using Custom Navigation option available so that links are available for employees.

Utilize this option to add hyperlinks to various locations in the SAP SuccessFactors user interface. 
This enables users to navigate from that location to a specified URL.
