With Open Content Network (OCN), Administrators can import Litmos Training Content in bulk to SuccessFactors learning to curate and deliver a wide range of learning content to your staff. A subscription to LItmos Training Content and SAP SuccessFactors Learning is a prerequisite. Please work with your Account Executive about purchasing a subscription if you do not already have one.
After your subscription order is processed, you will be sent an email with access credentials to your personal Litmos Training Content Only site. There you can preview any courses purchased and configure the OCN connector to import those courses into your instance of SAP SuccessFactors Learning.

Generating a client secret for SAP SuccessFactors Learning
This step is only needed if the Client Secret for the Oauth Token Server in your SAP SuccessFactors Learning site is not known.
Note: Generating a new secret will invalidate an existing one if it has been produced in the past. Once the secret has been generated, it is not retained in the system and will be lost if the page is refreshed or the user navigates away.
If a new secret is generated later, this will also invalidated the one used in the Litmos Configuration.
Go to System Administration > Configuration > OAuth Token Server
If a new secret is required, click ‘Generate a new Client Secret’
Copy the client secret produced on the page; this is required for the configuration in Litmos.

You can use the ‘Go to the Content Library’ option to search for and preview any subscribed content.
On the next page, select ‘Add OCN Connection’ to add the details for your SAP SuccessFactors Learning Site:

Any errors will need to be fixed before the connection can be saved.If the connection is successful, the connection will be saved and the courses from your Litmos Training Content library will be published to your SAP SuccessFactors Learning site.

Only one connection is allowed for your site, but the details can be edited if necessary.
No SAML integration with Litmos Training is required when setting up OCN with SAP SuccessFactors Learning. Learners will be able to access content directly from the Learning Item within SAP SuccessFactors Learning.
Content Sync via OCN
A daily sync is run for any active connections. If additional content is added to the Litmos Training Content libraries purchased as part of your content subscription, these will be synced automatically to your SAP SuccessFactors Learning site via OCN.
Litmos uses AICC as the learning standard for Open Content Network Courses Imported into SAP SuccessFactors learning. Using AICC means no Integration Is required to send completion data back to your SAP SuccessFactors Learning site – all progress and completion data will be sent when users access the course directly from SAP SuccessFactors Learning.
