Currently, SAP Mobile Platform does not support data archiving,
data retention, or deletion policies. It is therefore important that you use default
database technology to implement any desired procedures and policies.
You can safely move transactional data from the online transactional database.
However, SAP recommends that you do not move customer data,
since this information is required in the transactional online database to ensure
referential integrity. Customer data should be small compared to the amount of transactional
data in the system. When archiving data from the online database, the data is no longer
visible through the user interfaces.
SAP Mobile Platform does not include automated procedures to
implement data retention and deletion policies. Set up cron jobs or manually perform tasks
that delete data after the retention period has expired.
Use the deletion script to remove and deactivate customer-related information, such
as mobile phone numbers, passwords, PINs, and payment instruments. The deletion script also
removes and marks customers as inactive in the system. Attachments, notes, and change
history is also removed. Further processing of financial transactions is impossible.
