How to archive production/process orders in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.


To be able to archive production/process orders in S/4HANA Cloud, it's necessary to use the data archiving.

Data archiving is used to delete data at the end of its lifecycle and to block and delete personal data in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Archiving moves the personal data from the database to archive files if the end of purpose is reached. In doing so, the personal data is implicitly marked as blocked. Blocked data has access restrictions to prevent further unauthorized processing.

Personal data remains blocked until the retention period has ended. Once this is the case, it's possible to destroy the archived data.

For archiving production/process order, use the following archiving objects:

  • Process Orders - PR_ORDER 
  • Production Orders - PP_ORDER

In the Manage Archiving Variants app, choose the archiving object and schedule archiving.

Before scheduling an archiving, take a look at the following links and make sure you have followed all the necessary steps:
