Reproducing the Issue

After scheduling an instance refresh via the tool (IRT), there is an unfamiliar status that appeared in the page: "Post-Refresh Activities in Progress" and "Instance Stabilization in Progress"


This is an 1911 enhancement


A new status is introduced in the Instance Refresh process with the name "Post-Refresh Activities in Progress". This status is a part of regular refresh process. During this status, certain activities are done to maintain stability in your target instance. The activities that take place based on your instance are, deleting the audit logs and NoSQL data, masking the internal users email ID, and syncing user data between SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite and SAP SuccesFactors Learning. If all the activities are completed successfully, the status of the refresh process changes to Successful.

"Instance Stabilization in Progress" status is displayed when the basic refresh on your target instance is complete and one or more activities like deleting the NoSQL data, deleting the audit logs, rebuilding of the Solr indexes are being performed

You can see the status "Instance Stabilization in Progress" occurs after the "In Progress" status. The sequence of a successful refresh request after the request submission is:

  1. Scheduled.
  2. Validation in Progress.
  3. In Progress.
  4. Post-Refresh Activities in Progress.
  5. Instance Stabilization in Progress.
  6. Successful or Completed with Warning.

Note: If any one of the post-refresh activities fails, the status changes to "Completed with Warning"
