3241020 - Is it possible to select which competencies are available - Recruiting Management


The user would like to choose which competencies or which competency libraries are available for selection on job requisitions.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Define the standard "competencies" field on the job requisition template
  2. Create a new job requisition with this template
  3. Try adding a competency. All the competencies from all the libraries are available for selection.


This is currently expected behaviour. Recruiting users can access all competency libraries set up in the instance. It is not presently possible to restrict access to only certain libraries for certain users.

This is detailed in the implementation guide: Adding Competencies to Requisitions

There is an ongoing enhancement request to have this behaviour modified: [Admin] - Competency Improvements. Feel free to add your vote on it if this is something you would like to be changed in a future version.
