Why is SCN not showing all content - trying to access some slides and blogs and the message I get is "content has not been migrated". Where can I access old SCN content?

Same problem here, a lot of stuff went missing, like the Cluster Patching Guide or the Apache Split Guide.
Some things you can access via bookmarks to the actual target (if there is anything else than the http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-xxxxx link, to which Google and the SAP Search usually refer).

Dean - a work around is this - go to web.archive.org

Enter the missing URL

It will find it in cache (it is a little slow)

As an example, I put in sap.com/LearnBI and it came back with this:

http://web.archive.org/web/20160422224638/http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7725

Not all the SAP document content was migrated - I thought SAP was looking into fixing this soon. It might be better to ask this using the "using sap.com" tag.

Karthik - I am customer volunteer moderator; I don't have those types of powers.

Jurgen is right - there is an announcement that says "Announcement: There is a known issue preventing certain content from surfacing in the document archive. Specifically, links to archived SAP-authored documents that were created before June 1, 2015 are currently not working. A fix will be in place during the week of November 7."

Hello Karthik,

when I click your link, I get re-directed here: https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-74286

Isn't this your document? So it's working now?

.

Regards,

Steffi.

PS: This is a document, not a blog. That's a different content type. Documents went into the archive (see yours) and blogs into the new blogging environment and you'd see it in your profile (sadly not stuff from the archives). :)

Thanks Steffi - that's it!
