2842141 - People Scope not appearing in runtime filters even when 'User Prompted People Scope' is checked - Detailed Reporting

  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite
    • Online Report Designer / Report - Canvas : Advanced reporting

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Report - Canvas
  2. Add a List report Component
  3. Edit Query
  4. Select 'Detailed Reporting' > New
  5. Design query to include fields from a domain which supports People Scope and from one that does not
  6. From Edit > People Scope > check 'User Prompted People Scope' 
  7. Save
  8. Run the Report from Report Center
  9. See if option to set People Scope is displayed in the runtime filter pop-up dialog


If the initial domain (of the two domains) to build a cross-domain report does not support/have People Scope, then runtime filter does not show the option to set People Scope during runtime.


  • Go to Report Center > Edit the Report > Select Component > Edit Query > click on Edit menu > select Relationship Scope 
  • See which is the first domain (the one to the left)
  • If the first domains does not have People Scope, then it will not display 2nd domains People Scope in runtime filters even if 'User Prompted People Scope'  is selected.
  • Edit the report and interchange the domains by building the report from scratch. Make sure to have domain that supports people scope as the first domain.
