  2. In the Search Object Definition type Job Profile or skills or competencies;
  3. Option is not available:


In Provisioning > Company Settings if the setting "JDMv2.0" to enable JPB is checked, and the options do not show up in the Configure Object Definition search box, it is possible that the object did not sync successfully.


First, make sure Job Profile Builder is correctly enabled in Provisioning, by following the instructions in the KBA 2383059 - How to enable Job Profile Builder.
