3472979 - "You do not have permission to view this profile" error when using SF deep link


You are using a SuccessFactors (SF) deep link to access employees profiles (/sf/liveprofile) but you are facing the "You do not have permission to view this profile" error.


SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

Use this SF deep link: https://<SF server address>/sf/liveprofile?selected_user=<XXX>


The selected_user parameter expects existing User IDs necessarily and not any other identifiers (e.g. Person ID). If the User ID informed is not found, the error is thrown.


Fill the selected_user parameter with an existing User ID.

For other available parameters and deep links, refer to the List of SAP SuccessFactors Deep Links chapter.

OBS.: A user's User ID can be checked in the Employee Export Data (UDF) (refer to the KBA 2797141).
