SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In goal plan, "cascade-push", "create" permissions are granted to EM and EX.
  2. Matrix manager has permission to the goal plan and his/her matrix reports are in the target population. (the matrix manager ONLY has matrix reports, no direct reports.)
  3. The cascade button does not show for the user, not that the cascade button is grayed out)


This is a Known Issue.


This is tentatively scheduled to be fixed in the 2405 release. Release dates can be reviewed on Product Release & Road Map Information.


  1. Configure and use Cascader role following the guide here: Configuring Cascader Role;
  2. Add <role-name><![CDATA[*]]></role-name> under the permission "cascade-push"
