2601638 - How to clean up Report Jobs tab in LMS


This KBA covers how to clean up the Report Jobs tab in the LMS


SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Learning Administraiton
  2. Navigate to Reports 
  3. Click on "Report Jobs" tab
  4. There may be many outdated entries that need to be removed


There are 2 ways to clean up these entries:

Manual Deletion:

One-time background report jobs:

  1. Go to Learning Administraiton
  2. Navigate to Reports
  3. Click on "Report Jobs" tab
  4. Click "Delete" next to the Report Job Result entry

Recurring report scheduled jobs

  1. Go to Learning Administraiton
  2. Navigate to Reports 
  3. Click on "Report Jobs" tab
  4. Click "Edit Schedule"
  5. Click "View Results" tab
  6. Click "Delete" next to the job result entry you wish to remove

Automated Deletion:

Using the Purge Past Background Job Results Automatic Process (APM)

IMPORTANT NOTE: This will remove the result entries for ALL background jobs older than the threshold specified

  1. Go to Learning Administraiton > System Administration > Automatic Processes
  2. Click "Purge Past Background Job Results"


  • Since this does delete all background job entries, check System Administration > Background Jobs to get an idea of what those entries are that would be removed by this process
  • This clean up does not delete recurring schedules or stop anything scheduled to run in the future
  • It is essentially removing "log" entries for job results
