Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite- Import Metadata Framework (MDF)

Resolution

The Admins can now configure the batch size for importing MDF entities in the UI to avoid transaction timeout exception or issues in certain scenarios, such as importing objects with a large number of rules.

This means that you no longer have to contact SAP Cloud Support to change the batch size. This allows for better admin self-service in the system. To configure the batch size, proceed as follows:
Procedure
  1. Go to the Admin Center. In the Tools search field, stype Import and Export Data.
  2. In the Import and Export Data page, select Import Config from the dropdown list.
  3. Select the generic object for which to configure the import and then enter the batch size that you want. The default is 500, but it can be between 20 and 500.
