Data Inspector - The raw data viewing tool 


This article will cover the following

  • Overview 

  • Technical Architecture 

  • Prerequisites

  • Data Inspector 

  • Use Case


The data Inspector tool is designed for professional users (customer/partner implementation team, system admins, SAP customer support team, SAP Engineering Support Team) to view/ download the raw data in a tabular from the instance. It can be seen as a one-stop destination to review various entity tables which were earlier accessed from different tools in Employee Central.

Customers will be able to see this function after b1705 comes to production. As of 1705 release, it shows the technical data.


It does not show Personally identifiable information (PII), ex., first name, last name, email, age, title, position etc. 

It only allows you to view/ download the table. You cannot modify/upload the table from Data Inspector Tool.
