2770169 - DRTM Permission "Create DRTM Data Purge Request" & "Approve DRTM Data Purge Request" do not save in RBP

Symptom

  • We are trying to enable the DRTM Purge permissions but they are not saving.
  • After I checked the permission "Create DRTM Data Purge Request" & "Approve DRTM Data Purge Request" in Role Based Permissions (RBP), then save the RBP role, the permission was not saved when re-opened in RBP.

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Environment

 SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite: Data Retention Management (DRTM)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Admin Center
  2. Search for Manage Permission Roles
  3. Select the role you need to grant the access and hit “permission”
    • Select "Create DRTM Data Purge Request" & "Approve DRTM Data Purge Request"
  4. Save the changes
  5. Check the role once again, you will find that the permissions were not saved

Cause

This is caused by a Data Issue:

  • In these instances, the two permissions "Create DRTM Data Purge Request" & "Approve DRTM Data Purge Request" are missing in permission table in database
  • Therefore it will not save the permission in RBP role, the configuration will not take effect

Resolution

Note: To resolve this issue, you will need to engage your Partner or CPS as the solution requires access to Provisioning which customers do not have access to.

  1. Logon to Provisioning, choose your Company
