Resolution

Delta Export is a new scheduled job in provisioning, which was added in b1402 release. It loads changed user data from the core SuccessFactors application stack to the Learning solution stack for example.
 
Different types of Delta Export Jobs:

  1. Delta Employee Export
  2. Delta Live Profile Export

How does the Delta Export Job work?

  1. Delta Export  Job only exports changed users, so that other products that use Employee Export/Live Profile Export to sync up user information from BizX, such as Learning can process fewer users. 
  2. There is only one job parameter and it is for encoding. Now the UTF-8 encoding is UTF-8 without BOM which is same with Employee Export job.
  3. The job will export the same fields with Employee Export job or Live Profile Export job.
  4. The job will export the users that are in job owner's target population if RBP or Administrative Domain is on. This is the same behavior as Employee Export job.
  5. When the job is run for the first time, it will export all users and initialize the hash code table. Then the following runs will export the delta users.
  6. The job will export internal active and inactive users.
  7. It helps the Learning application by loading only the changed user data from the core SuccessFactors application stack to the Learning solution stack.
