SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Competency Connector Enhancements

SAP SuccessFactors Learning now features a connector configuration update that allows you to add competency type on the fly and also makes type an optional field.

What's Changed

Before if the default competency type value in the connector configuration didn’t exist in Learning Management System, then the connector would have failed. Any workaround customers have used to add the value via the Flash UI will be removed with the 2H 2020 release.

The type field was displayed on the competency record in the Learning Management System and used while searching for a competency to add to an item.

Previously, the connector logic and GUI incorrectly had this field as a requirement.

Now, the type field isn’t required by the connector or the GUI. Additionally, the default type per the connector configuration will be created if the value doesn't already exist in Learning.
