SAP BO BW Authentication - Promotion Tool

Hi Experts,

I have been looking for any online resource where I can find some info around how BO Security Groups are promoted from Dev to Test and then to Prod.

Okay.. here is what we did..

a. we created a BW shell role AB001 in BWDEV

b. using Authentication in BODEV we imported the shell role AB001 into BODEV

c. step b created a User group called "BWDEV/AB001" in BODEV

d. now we configured "BWDEV/AB001" in BODEV with read, write and view permissions

until now everything is cool.

e. we next transported the BW shell role AB001 in BWDEV to BWQAS

f. similar to step b above we impoted this role into BOQAS

g. step f created a User group called "BWQAS/AB001" in BOQAS

h. now we promoted (ofcourse we collected the user group ) "BWDEV/AB001" in BODEV to BOQAS

here is the issue...

when we looked into BOQAS we see two user groups

"BWDEV/AB001"

"BWQAS/AB001 "

ideally the users will be assigned to role AB001 in BWQAS but this will not work...

Can anyone help with this issue?

    Hi,

    You can't promote BW users using promotion manager in BO. The best practice is to create BO groups with similar names as your BW roles, assign BO security to the BO groups and then assign your BW roles to these BO groups. You can then promote the BO groups without including the BW roles.

    Simple 😊

    What happens when you promote the BW roles is that the SAP authentication connection is created in BOQAS for BWQAS. To remove the BWDEV role from your BOQAS system you have to delete the authentication to BWDEV system.

    Cheers,

    Josh
