SAP BW 7.0 SP 23 master data deletion functionality


I came across  this on SCN "

"Although the new Master Data Deletion has been available for some time now (since BW 7.00 SP 23), it was never the default version in the system. This implied that the BW System Administrators needed to switch it ON explicitly


I am using SAP Bw 7.0 SP 23.. when I usually delete large amount of master data it gives me dump. Can anyone suggest how to switch On the new functionality for master data deletion..

    Hi Rahul,

    You can find all information in SAP Note 1370848 - New Master Data Deletion - Information.

    It gives also an answer to your question:

    Switching it ON/OFF - The new version of the Master Data deletion can be switched ON/OFF by accessing the menu Settings -> Global Settings in the DataWarehousing Workbench. Under the settings menu, the check box named - 'Pack.Mas.Data.Del' can be used to turn the new Master Data Deletion ON/OFF. The new version is switched ON by the selecting the checkbox.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Rahul,

      Exactly, you got the point. Master data deletion is always a difficult subject because master data is the backbone of the BW system and might still be used in different places.

      I hope that you are able to find the right strategy for master data deletion. For sure, the enhanced features of master data deletion (also in background) will contribute to a better and faster process.

      Best regards,
