Quite a few links into archive are not working anymore

There are quite a few links to articles which have been migrated from SCN to 1DX which are not accessible anymore, e.g.

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/index?rid=/library/uuid/20965d21-6c93-2a10-d4a0-9f3c27a939fc&overridelayout=true

which could be reached via the still available archive page

https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-16150

I am very sure that this was working a few months ago. What happened?

Thanks and kind regards

Harald

    Hi Harald,

    This is a known issue and we are working to resolve.

    To give some brief background: As we were preparing for the transition from SCN to SAP Community, we had an old repository of 20,000 assets (accessible from what were essentially cover pages in SCN). The repository was scheduled for shut down, and some of the documents were very old (and rarely accessed) or in formats no longer supported, so we conducted an audit using specific criteria and working with internal content owners to migrate the best stuff wherever possible. We thought this audit would protect the most useful materials, while clearing out the outdated content that was no longer wanted or supported.

    We notified the content owners, but that doesn't mean things weren't overlooked (obviously, given the recent issues). That's why we were inviting the owners to alert us if their content wasn't migrated. We were also allowing community members to alert us if they wanted files that were no longer available. Clearly, far too many useful ones became unavailable.

    For now, I wanted to assure you that we are aware of the significance of the issue and we are working to deliver a fix.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

    Mynyna
