3311985 - The stories in a folder were deleted after the folder was transported via Content Network in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • The stories in target system were deleted automatically after transported via content network in SAC.
  • The deleted stories are in the same folder in source system. 
  • In activities logs, the folder and the stories in it have been deleted by the user who executed transportation.



  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2022.21.11 (SAC) 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Transport Folder A which contains several stories from a source SAC tenant to a target SAC tenant via Content Network.
  2. After transportation finished, see that the stories in Folder A got deleted and Folder A still exists in the destination SAC system.
  3. In the Activities logs in Security menu, it is found that the stories are deleted by the user who executed the transport job.


  • There is already a folder called Folder A in target system. So these two folders have different IDs but same file name.
  • When the folder in source tenant was imported into the target tenant, it is not possible to create two different folders with same file name.
  • So when importing, the stories in the imported folder Folder A were deleted. And in Activities logs, the stories seems to be deleted by the user who executed the transport job at the same time point.


  • Make sure that there is no such a folder in target system with same file name but different ID before importing.
  • How to check the folder ID:

Go to the folder in SAC, then the ID will be displayed in the URL:

e.g. <SAC URL>/files&/f/system/<Folder ID>
