SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Generate PGP Keys for Scheduled Jobs in Security Center

As a company administrator, you can now generate PGP keys used in scheduled jobs by using Security Center.

You can export or remove the newly generated keys and the PGP keys previously generated through Provisioning in Security Center.

We built this feature so that you can generate and manage PGP key used in scheduled jobs without contacting SAP Cloud Support.
