2661103 - DRM: Deleting Old Purge Requests


The "delete" button is grayed out under Approved Requests of "Purge Request Monitor".


SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to "Purge Request Monitor" in Admin Center.
  2. Click on Approved Requests tab, under 'actions' the DELETE button is Grayed out.


Either you are not the requestor of the purge request you want to delete, or the purged requests was declined.

In both the cases, the DELETE button will be grayed out.


The DELETE button under Approved Request in Purge request Monitor will work only if:

  • The purge request has a status of EXPIRED, FAILED, or COMPLETED.
  • You are the requestor of the purge request.

Once you delete the request, the purge request is permanently deleted and removed from the Purge request Monitor page, along with its associated reports.
