2450374 - Data exposed in SAP Analytics Cloud from SuccessFactors OData API does not match


  • There is a difference between the data schema structure that we see in SuccessFactors > Reporting and the one that is visible in SAP Analytics Cloud when connecting to SAP SuccessFactors (SF).
  • Tables / fields in SAP SuccessFactors are not available in the same structure and the data appears different than what is expected from SF.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Models > Create a Model > Create a model using an App
  2. Select SuccessFactors
  3. Select a connection
  4. Create a new query

Observe that the listed Data dictionaries are different than the columns when creating a Report in SuccessFactors under the Admin Center > Analytics tab.


SAP Analytics Cloud is calling the SuccessFactors OData API to get all entities.


  • The same list can be retrieved by listing the dictionaries in the "OData API Data Dictionary" menu in SAP SuccessFactors.
  • By using this data dictionary, the expected information can be retrieved and compared with the same in BusinessObjects Cloud.


Additional Information:

  • A proper setup on SuccessFactors is required to enable the connection. For more information, see the following topic in the HCM Suite OData API documentation.
