Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a performance issue in the HR purge activity which uses the api hr_person_delete.delete_a_person.

It is taking more than five (5) minutes to purge one employee and almost 9 hours to purge 500 employees.

Deleting one employee should be a lot faster than 5 minutes.

Steps to Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Create a custom script to call the api hr_person_delete.delete_a_person.

2. Create a concurrent program in the Applications to call the custom script.

3. Submit the concurrent request.
