Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


This is an expected behavior.

Closed classes indicate that you have recorded attendance and recorded completion statuses. When a class is closed, other administrators cannot register new participants by accident and learners cannot self-register.


Since this is working as expected, you may submit an enhancement request to allow users to be added in a closed class or have an option to re-open the class.

You may reference on the KB link below on how to submit enhancement request.

If in any case, user needs to have completion on the class, admin can record a manual completion by going to Users> System Management> Add Learning History for Multiple Courses> select class on What kind of learning do you want to add to history?> search for the class ID and search for the user to be recorded. Complete the process by adding the completion status/grade then submit.
