Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Admin Center, go to Manage Job Profile Content.
  2. Select Competency.
  3. Select Create Competency.
  4. Notice the duplicate libraries when selecting the Library.


This is a known-issue wherein the number of libraries (and categories, if applied) shown in the selection box is the same as the number of competencies in it. It seems the system looks at each individual competency's library and displays it as an option but does not check if it's duplicate. However, selecting any of the duplicates will work successfully.

The developers are aware of the issue and the fix is part of the roadmap, tentative 1H 2021.

We will update this article as we receive more information.
