SAP SuccessFactors HXM Core

Reproducing the Issue

  • Login to any SuccessFactors instance that is in 2H 2021 release version.
  • Go to Data Retention Management tool.
  • Create a Purge Request, selecting any purge type, with required parameters.
  • Click Schedule to bring up the "Schedule Purge Request" pop-up.
  • Try to schedule the purge without any End Date.
  • Error will be shown- The recurring pattern is invalid. No occurrence can be found in the time range
        

Cause

This is one of the Enhancements from the 2H 2021 release and hence, an expected behavior. A valid End Date is now required in order to be able to Schedule a Purge Request.

Resolution

A valid End Date needs to be selected for the Purge request scheduling to be accepted. Customers can choose a future year, like 2099, for the End date if they do not want the purge schedule to expire too soon.
