Is there anyother way to access XPI inspector without admin access ?

Hi Everyone,

i want to access XPI inspector to solve issues in PI 7.5. But this requires admin access. I am not sure i will get that kind of access in the project that i am working. Is there any other way to enable it without admin access ?

Regards,

Nirmal

    Hello all,

    We have run into this problem recently and have found a solution. The deployment of XPI Inspector creates two Actions in the UME (tested with Inspector 4.7 and above, but quite sure this is the case in earlier versions as well):

    Adding these actions to a role, and assigning the role to a user enables this user to use the tool, while having considerably restricted authorizations compared to 'Administrator'.

    My guess is that the role 'XPIInspectorAdministrator' and the assignment to the user group 'Administrators' has been confused in the documentation related to Inspector until now.

    Hello Nirmal,

    I doubt its possible,you can request for temporary admin access.

    Hello Nirmal,

    It is mandatory to have a security role 'Administrator' to be assigned to your user account in order for you to be able to use XPI Inspector. This is stated in the corresponding SAP Note 1514898 (check PDF documentation on XPI Inspector usage, attached to the mentioned Note). Hence, either you have to get Administrator access (at least temporarily, for the period of traces collection), or you will need to get in touch somebody who has this kind of access, to collect XPI Inspector traces for you, and then download and provide them to you.

    It would be helpful if admin access is not required for this. Anyone could come up with a workaround ?
