2415773 - How to Remove Specific Attachments from Background Porlets - Employee Profile


  • Is there a way to remove a massive amount of attachments from a background portlet without the need to remove all data?
  • In case a batch upload imported unwanted data, how to proceed to remove it?


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile


As the attachments can only be imported one at a time, or mass imported via batch upload job, there is no way to replace/delete them individually via Extended User Information Import.

In case there was unwanted attachment data imported to a background portlet, it can be removed in two ways:

  • Removing it manually, one at a time. This is the suggested course of action for when only a small amount of unwanted data needs to be removed.
  • Backing up all data from that portlet (attachments, and their respective users), deleting all data from the specific background portlet, using a .csv file with only this portlet header. Once all data is deleted, reimport all data through an batch upload. Refer to KBA 2218874 for instructions on this step.
