SAP SuccessFactors LMS

Learning Management System


Connectors process the information provided via input files, but this data is not saved by default if the system is not configured to do so. In order to enable the archive of input files for the next executions of the connectors:

  1. Please navigate to Learning Administration -> System Administration -> Connectors ->  Connector Settings.
  2. Select the Enable input file archive checkbox.
  3. The addtioanl option, the admin can set the length of time the file can be kept before being deleted.
  4. Press Apply Changes when finished.

This change will enable ‘View archived input file’ button on connectors’ screens

If the connector runs and the file is picked by the connector, a copy of the file processed will be archived and viewed by pressing this button.

It is very useful to check the archived input file searching by the ID of the entity showed in the connector’s report when errors or exceptions are generated.

Important: The length of time you choose to archive the file before purging also applies to the logs available for a particular job/file. For example, if you select 6 months before purging the input file from the archive, LMS will only keep the relating connector logs for the same period of time before they too get purged.
