2711293 - Unable to Report on Data Residency in Advanced Reporting (Realms)


Customer has configured the Russia Data Residency Solution following the SAP User Guide (Attached) and the Data Residency Realms is unavailable in Advanced Reporting


All SuccessFactors Environment

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into SuccessFactors
  2. Navigate to Reporting
  3. Create new Report - Canvas
  4. Add Component: Table
  5. List Report
  6. Edit Query
  7. Advanced Reporting
  8. New
  9. Search for "Data Residency". Object "PersonDataResidencyLogRecord" not available.



The object PersonDataResidencyLogRecord which is an MDF 2.0 Object requires View-Based Metadata to be enabled in order for it to be available in Reporting.


Please raise a ticket with support asking for View-Based Metadata to be enabled on your instance.

N.B. We cannot enable VBM if your instance has OLAP enabled (WFA on HANA /  Analytics in EC Cube) as OLAP currently does not support VBM. This will be fixed in the 1811 release (December 1st), so I would suggest opening a new case on the 1st of December requesting the enablement of VBM so that you can report on Data Residency in Advanced Reporting. 

For more information on View-Based Metadata:

-> KBA 2573340 View Based Metadata (VBM) 1711 Release Notes

-> KBA 2569587 ODS Advanced Reporting (Realms) - Purge Advanced Reporting Metadata Cache - What is it?

Once VBM is enabled, the table will be available in Advanced Reporting:
