How to protect Queries from being modified ?

Hi all

Is it possible to set queries as read only for some users?

They should just see the query structure as read-only in BEx, in case they need to modify they should SAVE AS, instead of updating the previous structure of the query.

      Hi Ashwin

      Thanks for your reply. I need more clear/spefic hints, sine there are many topics about authorizations, the ones I've already read weren't so similar to my example.

      Any other hints ?

    Hi,

    Yes, it’s possible.

    Execute PFCG t-code. Enter the new role name, click on a ‘Role’ button.

    In the new window click on ‘Authorization’ tab and then on a ‘Change Authorization Data’ pencil.

    In the new window click on ‘+Manually’ button. Type in ‘S_RFC’, ‘S_RS_COMP’ and ‘S_RS_COMP1’ names.

    Choose menu option ‘Utilities-Technical names on’.

    Expand ‘S_RS_COMP’ node. Press on a pencil at the rows beginning for each row and enter the following:

    Activity – 03, 16

    Infoarea – type the specific infoarea name if you want to restrict by it, otherwise – choose *.

    Name (ID) of a reporting component - put here a name of a specific query, or if you have naming conventions for queries – query prefix followed by *.

    Type of a reporting component – REP.

    Expand ‘S_RS_COMP1’ node. Press on a pencil at the rows beginning for each row and enter the following:

    Activity – 03, 16

    Name (ID) of a reporting component - put here a name of a specific query, or if you have naming conventions for queries – query prefix followed by *.

    Type of a reporting component – REP.

    Owner (Person Responsible) for - If you want to secure by query owner, put the owner name here. The other users will be able just execute queries created by the owner. Or you may put here *.

    Click on a ‘Generate’ icon.

    Click on a ‘User’ tab, enter user(s) for which you want to assign this role. Then click on a ‘Use Comparison’, then ‘Complete Comparison’ buttons.

    Save the role.

    Now users with only this role will not be able to modify queries.

    Best regards,

    Eugene
