3169548 - MDI: Manual steps required for Business Scenarios which will be upgraded to the latest ODM version 3.0.0

Symptom

Please note this KBA is only relevant if you have activated the business scenarios to retrieve cost centers from MDI (Master Data Integration) or send Workforce, Organizational Units or Job Classifications to MDI.

Starting with the 2205 release the following Business Scenarios will be upgraded to the latest ODM version 3.0.0. This requires a few manual steps from our customers.

  • Workforce Replication from EC to SAP Master Data Integration
  • Job Classification Repl. from EC to SAP Master Data Integration
  • Org Unit Replication from EC to SAP Master Data Integration
  • Cost Center Replication from SAP Master Data Integration to EC

This KBA describes which steps need to be performed by the customer to upgrade the business scenarios to ODM version 3.0.0.

The upgrade can be initiated and performed by the customer without the need of raising an ServiceNow incident.

The upgrade process itself should take less than 1 hour if there are no unforeseeable issues and should be initiated right after the release upgrade to b2205. Maintenance of master data for the affected entities e.g., Cost Centers, will not be affected by the upgrade and can be continued during the upgrade. Also, no other business processes should be affected. 

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors

Resolution

Prerequisites

The upgrade requires read access to Manage Data for the IntegrationProcessDefinition object and access to delete and maintain Business Scenarios in Integration Center. In error handling cases it is also useful to be able to check logs in Execution Manager.
