Stages of Data Removal – Native Users, Admins, Instructors

 Stages.JPG

1. User Permanent Purge (LRN-17386, LRN-17497)

What is it?
SAP SuccessFactors Learning follows a deliberate process for irrevocably deleting user data. At the end of it, user data is removed from the system and cannot be recovered. You follow this process as part of your data privacy practice. BizX users are already purged from BizX, and now purge of native Learning-only users such as external users, admins, and instructors is supported in this release.

Why is it important?
Customers maintain internal policies for purging the personal data of former users from their systems. These features aid customers in supporting their policies.

Prerequisites (Required Workflows)

  • Edit Purge Deleted User Audit History Automatic Process.
  • Edit Delete Inactive Native User.

2. Delete Inactive User Purge (LRN-17497)

Delete Inactive Native User automatic process

  • Delete inactive native users
  • Delete based on how long they’ve been inactive
  • Related Instructors are also deleted

Note: Only use this process if you have native Learning users only in Learning. This process may potentially delete inactive users who were created and maintained by BizX platform.

3. Purge Deleted User Audit History (LRN-17386)

Purge Deleted User Audit History automatic process

  • Purge history data for all deleted users, admins, instructors

1. User Personal Information Report (LRN-18178)

What is it?
Report can be generated that displays the personal information stored for a single user and its purpose. While BizX users can be included in this report, the report can be run from Learning in order to support users who are not maintained in BizX, including admins and instructors.

Why is it important?
This feature provides admins a way to generate a report that informs a user about the personal data stored in the LMS.

Prerequisites
Run User Personal Information Report workflow.

2. BizX Admin runs User Personal Data Report (LRN-18177)

What is it?
Report can be generated by a BizX admin that displays the personal information stored in Learning for a single user and its purpose.

To generate this report we added a connection to SAP SuccessFactors platform via an internal API. As part of this change, we made changes to Learning OData system. The change is currently internal, but the internal changes will reach the public Learning OData APIs in the Q2 2018 SaaS release. Using this API will require updating OLingo client library to 4.2.0-sap-04 (only for V4).

Why is it important?
This feature provides admins a way to generate a report that informs a user about the personal data stored in the LMS.

Prerequisites
None

3. User Information Change Report (LRN-17500)

What is it?
Report can be generated that displays the changes to personal information stored for a single user, and who made the changes. The report can also be run that shows all of the changes made by a person. While BizX users can be included in this report, the report can be run from Learning in order to support users who are not maintained in BizX, including admins and instructors.

Why is it important?
This feature provides admins a way to generate a report that informs a user about the changes made to their personal data stored in the LMS.
