3271335 - "Add to Learning Assignments" permission required to self-register into a class


After 1H 2021 release, users are not able to self-register into a class. Prior to this system release, users did not have any issues.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Assign a Role to a test user that does not have the appropriate permission. (remove this permission "Add to Learning Assignments")
  2. Go to the user side.
  3. Try to enroll/register for a class.
  4. Either the registration button will be missing, or; User will receive a warning message saying "You don't have permission to perform this action".


With the release of 1H 2021, Registration API has been enhanced for a better experience with Course Home and, from a Product perspective, a user must have permission to assign the item when attempting to register into a class. Technically, the class is an entity originated from an Item and the item must be assigned in order to complete the registration.


Note:This is the expected behavior of the system from 2H 2021 until 2H 2023. The "Add to Learning Assignments " permission will no longer be necessary post the 2H 2023 upgrade. To resolve the issue until the 2H 2023 release, please see below:

It will impact customers who already use Course Home and also customers that do not use neither enableCourseHomeBlended nor enableCourseHome*. Now the permission "Add to Learning Assignments" is required to be added to the Role to allow users to self-register into a class.

To make sure the permission is added to the user's role, please use this documentation as a guide.

* - Original Course Home maintenance ended in May, 2022: Deprecation of Original Course Home Experience and due to this fact, no issues will be corrected in this feature.
