With this blog, I would like to show you how to delete the whole mapping task in the migration project. As I have already mentioned in other blogs, please be aware that you can not delete the whole mapping tasks of a control parameter and fixed value type.
Description: In some cases, there is a need to get rid of the whole mapping task with all mapping values. In the LTMC (old app) it was possible to delete the mapping task directly in the migration cockpit. With the new “Migrate your data” app this functionality is not enabled.
If you need to have the possibility to delete the mapping tasks directly in the app, please vote for this idea in the Customer Influence portal. The session is devoted to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud customers and partners. Improvement Request Details – Customer Influence (sap.com)
Solutions: to delete the whole mapping task with all the mapping values, you need to upload the empty file to the migration project. There are 2 ways how you can do it:
- Solution A: You download the mapping values in a form of an excel file to your laptop, delete the mapping values and upload the empty excel file back to the migration project
- Solution B: You can download the empty template to your laptop and upload this mapping excel file back to the migration project
I prefer to use Solution B because it involves fewer steps and helps you to save time by downloading the excel template and uploading it back without even opening it.
Let’s assume, you would like to delete one of the erroneous mapping tasks, for example, “Mapping of Academic Title”.
Solution A: 1) Select the mapping task and click Download Values.2) Accept the warning message and go to the Monitoring screen to download the excel file.3) In the Monitoring screen, click Download File. The zip file will be downloaded to your laptop.4) Unprotect the excel sheet and delete the rows with the right-click.
5) Save the empty excel file under the new name. Go back to your migration project and click Upload Values.6) Drag and drop the empty excel file to the migration project.7) In the additional settings, choose to Replace Existing Values as the option for Loading Values.8) You will get a warning message that the mapping task will be deleted. This is exactly what we want. Select the mapping task and click Upload Values.9) Go back to your Mapping Tasks screen and refresh the page.10) After the page is refreshed, you can see that the Mapping of Academic Title is deleted.Solution B: 1) Download the empty mapping template of “Academic Title”. Click Download Mapping Templates.2) Select Mapping of Academic Title template and click Download. The excel file will be downloaded to your laptop.
3) In the mapping tasks screen, click Upload Values.4) Drap and drop the empty template to the Upload Mapping Values screen.5) Choose Replace Existing Values as the options for loading values. 6) Select the mapping task and click Upload Values. 8) Go back to your Mapping Task screen and refresh the page.
The mapping task has been deleted!
