When administrating an InfoProvider, you can manually (without using process chains) create, execute, and reload the archiving requests, as well as make them invalid.
You have created and activated a data archiving process for an InfoProvider.
In administration, you can create an archiving request for active data archiving processes. With data archiving processes that store the data in near-line storage, you can create a request, lock the selection area, write the data to near-line storage, verify the storage, and delete the data from the InfoProvider. If, for any reason, your requirements have changed, at any point before the verification, you can mark the request as invalid. Once the request has completed all the individual steps involved and the overall status is on green, you can reload the data back into the InfoProvider.
In ADK-based data archiving processes, you can only execute the archiving process in one step.
