SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
Online Report Designer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Report-Table and select Report Events Audit domain
  2. Add the Entity Name, Category, and Action
  3. Sort by the Entity Name
  4. Save and run the report. Notice that some rows show Category as blank


Datasource was/has not been added to the ORD report's component


This is an expected behavior for ORD and how the events are logged.

When you first create a report, it is only a blank page. You can add 'n' number of components of various datasources (Live Data/Advanced Reporting/Adhoc) to this page hence, at this point, the Category is not captured in the database.

When you add your datasource to your component, only then that the schema will identify the category as ORD which is why you see this captured in the next entry.
