Reproducing the Issue

  1. The Learning only user accesses the system > The desired item is searched and accessed >
  2. Buy it (for the first time) > Proceeded to the credit card payment > Complete the purchase and the order is approved >
  3. When the same course is searched again, the "Buy Course" button isn't displayed > Only "Start Course" is.


Our Learning Engineering team has finalized their work on the situation and the fix is targeted to be delivered with the 2405 patch 5. Additional details are available in the following links: Product Release & Road Map Information | SAP SuccessFactors - Patch Details.

As per the Course Home Experience for Users with an External Shopping Account, the fix will consist of displaying the "Add to Cart" action on the course details page. The fix will not lead to any change on the UI regarding the actions seen on the library search results.
