3454401 - Can I disable the English Debug language in my SuccessFactors instance?


I want to disable the English Debug language in my instance. It should not be used by employees since its purpose is to identify keys for changing text in the system, which is a task performed by system administrators.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access SuccessFactors and navigate to Settings > Change Language.
  2. You see the option "English Debug" available and would like to remove it.


You can disable English Debug using the Manage Languages tool, which can be accessed via Admin Center. Scroll down to the Debugging section and you can enable/disable English Debug:


  • The languages available in SuccessFactors are not controlled by role-based permissions, so it is not possible to enable it for a specific population of employees only.
  • If you would like to keep it enabled for administrators only, we recommend to disable English Debug in your Production instance and keep it enabled only in Test/Preview instances.
