Archiving DataLocate this document in the navigation structure


You have already loaded data into an InfoProvider.


Besides archiving data from InfoCubes and DataStore objects, you can also store it in near-line storage. Using the data archiving process you define whether the data is to be archived based on ADK, stored in near-line storage, or whether you want to use a mix of both. This data archiving process can be scheduled using either a process chain or the ADK. It can also be executed manually.


  1. You create a data archiving process for the InfoProvider from which you want to archive data.

  2. You generate and then schedule the archiving request. More information:

  3. You can load archived data back into InfoProviders.
