2757846 - Deprecation of Partner API, SFAPI Adhoc, and SFAPI for Simple Entities: Check Tool Information


In this document we shall discuss the Deprecation of Partner API, SFAPI Adhoc, and SFAPI for Simple Entities. We shall also detail the use of the Configuration Check Tool in SuccessFactors (SF).

Deprecation is an industry standard terminology for the initial step of the API end-of-life cycle. Deprecation is not decommissioning. Decommissioning is a possible later stage. It does not mean that an API will be removed from productive environments.

  • SF

Reproducing the Issue


1. Search 'Check Tool' via Tool Search in Admin Center


2. View Application Filter - no 'Deprecated API/SFAPI Entity' filter available 



  • This functionality is not yet available.


In the future, we will indicate using the Configuration Check tool if you have deprecated APIs turned on in your tenant. We can also provide indication of deprecated APIs you may be using in your tenant.

Below are the actions customers can take at this time:

  1. Reach out to your Implementation Partner and verify if any of your integrations are configured using SFAPI for Simple Entities. 
  2. If this is not known to customer/partner, you can check this quickly and simply using the SFAPI Audit Log. These logs explain the behaviour of the API in the respective call. Reference reading here:
    2160313 - How to check and understand SFAPI Audit Logs
  3. Please submit an Enhancement Request to raise this functionality request to Product Management. Details on how-to proceed with an Enhancement Request here:

    Kindly Note:
    Cloud Product Support (CPS) is not the Portal for submitting/monitoring Enhancement Requests, please follow the above KBA. This decision of functionality implementation lies between Product Management (PM) and our Engineering teams.
