2388700 - Increasing the limit for top level custom MDF objects

Symptom

The number of top level custom MDF objects in your instance has exceeded the default limit. Please create a case with customer support , along with business justification, to request that 25 additional MDF objects be allocated.

Environment

  • SuccessFactos Cloud HCM: Metadata Framework
  • SuccessFactors Cloud HCM: Provisioning

Reproducing the Issue

When trying to create a new Object definition a message pops up with the exceeded limit warning, if the customer has already crossed the default limit of top level MDF custom objects creation.

Resolution

When creating new object definitions, if you receive a message as follows: "The number of top level custom MDF objects in your instance has exceeded the default limit. Please create a case with support, along with business justification to request that 25 additional MDF objects be allocated" customers are requested to share the information on the business justification of MDF usage in the below format:

Business Justification template:

*******************Description of MDF Model********************

1) Business Use Case: Use case to be fulfilled with custom MDF objects/extensions

2) Entity Relationship: Provide information on Entity relationship model for the custom MDF objects/extensions

3) Model Specification:

     i) Number of top level custom MDF objects

     ii) Definition details of top level custom MDF objects

     iii) Details of composites , valid-when objects

     iv) Details of Rules , Workflows , UI used

4) Instance details for Analysis: Instance details where the model can be analyzed for custom MDF objects by Cloud Product Support team and recommendations provided

5) Other information and comments(if any)

************************************************************

Once the business justification on the MDF usage has been validated, Cloud Product Support team will assist further in increasing the limit by additional 25 MDF objects.

Note:

1. Limit on creating new object definitions applies to  top level custom MDF objects only. Objects that are associated to other objects with composite association type( i.e. parent-child relationship) are not included in this count and hence are independent of this limit. Also module delivered MDF objects and picklists / rules etc. are not included in this count and hence are independent of this limit

2. Kindly note that the tight coupling between SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and MDF has been removed from commercials perspective. Also usage of MDF or number of  top level custom MDF objects is not related to HCP SFSF Extension Package (standard/enterprise) etc.
