2840496 - Positions Are Not Showing Multiple Incumbents In Succession Management


Positions have been configured to allow multiple incumbents within Employee Central Position Management, however it is not reflected in Succession Management.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Succession Org Chart or Position Tile.
  2. Verify if multiple incumbents are showing in their respective positions. 
  3. Multiple incumbents are not showing.


It can be caused during the configuration of the MDF Position Object where the “MultipleIncumbentsAllowed" field may have the visibility set to "Not Visible".


  1. Go to Configure Object Definitions.
  2. Search for the Position Object.
  3. Choose "Make Correction".
  4. Change the visibility of the “MultipleIncumbentsAllowed" field to "Visible".

Note: Also ensure that the "Mass Position" flag is set to "Yes" within the Position itself (Manage Positions > Select Position > Mass Positions > Yes).
