2610529 - Dummy MDF Objects in the instance


  • We see many Test or strange objects, that we did not create in the instance
  • We see objects code starting with Test, Obj4 etc.

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


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Metadata Framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

Navigate to the Configure Object Definitions page or the Manage Data page, you will see strange objects with names starting with Test or Obj4



This is because of enabling an option in provisioning called Enable MDF Dummy Objects


Customers/Partners are requested not to enable this option in provisioning.

To remove these dummy objects from the instance, disable the option: Enable MDF Dummy Objects if you are a partner or contact Support for assistance


Note for support: Please read the comment in the memo
