Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Reporting and select the Performance Management Domain.
  2. Include "Section Name", "Section Rating" and "Section Rating Label" columns in the ad-hoc report.
  3. Run the ad-hoc report.
  4. Notice that the section Rating label of the form doesn’t match with the Report.


  • The adjusted rating scale (fm-meta -> scale-adjusted-calculation) only works in Summary section and summary rating because it’s defined in fm-meta.
  • The goal/competency rating label in the ad-hoc report isn’t affected by the adjusted rating scale configuration.
  • The report only reflects the original rating description of goal/competency.


  • PM form will use the adjusted rating scale label to replace the original rating label when displaying the overall competency rating in summary section.
  • On the other hand, the label for goal/competency rating in the ad-hoc report is from the rating scale defined in the goal/competency section.
