2463898 - SAP Best Practices Refresh for Talent Applications

Symptom

  • SAP Best Practices Refresh for Talent Applications Only

Please note that there is a change in the package brand name – The formerly available SAP Best Practices instance has been replaced with a SAP Best Practices for Talent Management only instance. 

Existing SAP Success Factors customers cannot use this option as the refresh overwrites all existing settings. We recommend those customers to use the ‘load and activate’ (manual configuration) option.

  • Employee Central is no longer part of the SAP Best Practices pre-configured instance due to the new deployment approach via Upgrade Center: refer to SAP Best Practices for SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - 2011015 Check also KBA 2575266 - How to Enable Best Practices Employee Central Core Content via Upgrade Center.

    Note: For implementing SAP Best Practices for SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central only, no refresh is needed and you can consume the pre-configurations directly via the Upgrade Center.

    However, in case you also plan to implement SAP Best Practices for any talent application soon after the setup of Employee Central, it is recommended to start with a copy of the SAP Best Practices Talent Management instance and use the Upgrade Center to activate the Employee Central pre-configuration content.
