Goal API – Lock Goals


Prior to this enhancement, when updating goals via the API, if a manager locked a goal, these locks were ignored.

With this enhancement, when goals are updated, a new Lock Goals endpoint now respects all rules regarding locking and unlocking goals enforced in customer portals.

This enhancement applies to the Goals API when used with Careers and Performance.


This functionality is on by default for clients that have purchased the Cornerstone Foundational APIs in Edge.


The following existing permission applies to this functionality:

Goals - Create Grants ability for user to create goals for self (and direct and indirect reports if a manager). The permission constraints determine for whom the user can create goals. This permission can be constrained by Employee Relationship, OU, User's OU, and User Self and Subordinates. This is an end user permission. Performance
