The missing PDF form may be corrupted in the backend.


For Implementation Partner(s) and Consultant(s)

Follow the steps below and review the SAP SuccessFactors Implementation Guide. In addition, avoid creating a support ticket when receiving any error due to misconfiguration and without utilizing SAP SuccessFactors Partner Delivery Community as a support channel for any configuration questions.

Note: Superadmin access is required to fullfil this.

  • Go to Superadmin find the ONB Account ID of the Customer
  • Under See also, click on Attachments and find the missing PDF Form.
  • View the PDF and you'll receive the error "Failed to view attachment". Which means the form is corrupted.
  • Ask the customer to provide the pdf form in the incident, and ask for approval to reupload them in the backend.
  • Reupload the form in superadmin and save. You should be able to view the form afterwards.
