After Employee job role change old attributes (skills or competencies) are still visible in Growth portfolio together with new role-specific ones.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Employee Growth portfolio and see a set of attributes (skills or competencies) that were populated from the relevant job role.
  2. Change the Employee job code to a different one with another set of skills or competencies mapped to the role.
  3. Go to the Employee Growth portfolio and see that 2 sets of attributes are displayed there (from the previous role and current one).


This is expected behavior: attributes will not be automatically removed from the Growth portfolio as per system design.


Employee can manually remove unnecessary skills or competencies from the Growth portfolio. NOTE: There is currently a known issue when employees try to remove the skills or competencies. More information is mentioned in 3454420 - Growth Portfolio Remove Skill Error: Unable to perform this action because this is a role-based attribute.

If it is necessary to remove the attribute for all employees for whom the job code changed, the Growth Portfolio import option should be used. With this option the Status of Attribute association will be marked as Inactive. The Standard integration template is available here: SuccessFactors Talent Intelligence Hub Growth Portfolio Import Template.
