3428345 - Transported import job of the model can't be refreshed


  • After transporting a model to target tenant, you can't refresh the import job of the model in the target tenant which is transported together with the model.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a model in source tenant.
  2. Go to Data Management and create an import job. Make sure the job can be executed once successfully.
  3. Transport the model to target tenant.
  4. Open the model in target tenant and go to Data Management
  5. Check the import job, there is no refresh option for it but only Set Up Import available


This is a designed expected behavior of the current product version.

When a model is transported from one system to another system where the model has associated data import job, the software would only transport the definition of the data import jobs but not the execution history. This part is by design.

The current UI of the Data Management page was designed in such a way that the "Last Known Status" shows the last completed execution of the job. When there is no such execution history, a "Set Up Import" link is shown instead, and the job is not refreshable. Please note that the user can clicks the "Set Up Import" link to open the job setting, and then simply click "Run Import" on the last page of the setting screen. They do not need to redo all the mapping or transform steps. After clicking "Run Import", this will make the job refreshable on the Data Management screen.


We will release an enhancement in the upcoming QRC release (2024.02) and from this release onward, the data Management UI would determine if a job is ready to refresh by a different means; even when a data import job does not have execution history, as long as the plan definition is complete, it will be refreshable and schedulable.
