In this blog i will provide the overview of the scenario where we would need to reset the Delta Sync Configuration for SuccessFactors and the steps to reset the Delta Sync Configuration

 

What is Initial Load?

Initial load is something where ALL the data present in SuccessFactors is transferred to the ERP or S/4 HANA system

 

What is Delta Load?

Delta load is something where only the data which is changed in SuccessFactors is pushed through to the ERP or S/4 HANA system.

 

Consider a case where the N number of employees are updated in SuccessFactors and all the employee data has been already read by SAP CPI system and due to some issue the data was not transferred to S/4 HANA system. In this case, if you need to transfer all the employees again then you must make some dummy changes in all the employees such that CPI system reads it again.

 

Real-time example would be, where all the employees with photo were read successfully and transferred to S/4 HANA system. Employees were completely transferred but the photo was not updated due to some error at S/4 side. Now once the issue is fixed if you want to transfer the photo, then you must do some delta changes in the successfactors for the photo such that the iFlow is triggered again and the data is read.

 

But this method would be huge waste of time if there are lot of employees. In such cases you can reset the delta sync configuration and redploy the iFlow, such that initial load is enabled. The procedure for it is as follows –
