Roles n Queries

Hi,

Till now we are restricting the queries based on the Infocube. We are planning to start using the queries based on the Role, so that queries from different cubes can be accessed by the users. I am not good at security. I would like to know

1. How to create a Role (I know PFCG, but what kind of role I need to create and how would be seen in BEx open Queries screen, as there are not such roles seen)

2. How to assign/save the queries to that role.

3. What kind of security access should we give to the users (does assigning the role accomplishes this)

4. How are things different in terms of workbook, If any?

Thanks

Gokul

    Hi Gokul,

    Answers to your queries

    1. & 2. go to PFCG transaction, here enter the name of the role which is to be assigned to users .

    a. In this role go to change authorisation screen.

    b. here check for the object class :Business Information Warehouse (Tech name 'RS').

    c. In this go to the Authorization object :Business Explorer - Components (tech name 'S_RS_COMP').fill up the authorization as * in all the fields except the field 'Name (ID) of a reporting compo'(tech name:RSZCOMPID). here enter the names of the queries you want to give authorization.

    3. If you want the user only to view the report then you can do this in the authorization files 'Type of a reporting component' (tech name RSZCOMPTP)where you can give user only 'query' (REP) authorization.

    4. For workbooks if you don't want user the refresh the query then just provide the name of the work book in the Menu tab in user role change mode. But if you want user to refresh workbook you have to enter all the queries used in the work book as the same way explained above.

    Hope this will help you out

    Enjoy

    Regards

    Rahul

    Hi Gokul,

    I assume that you have grouped all your Info cubes in more than one Info area or on the same Info area.

    You need to create a role and include the following Authorization objects S_USER_AGR , S_QUERY ,RS_COMP & RS_COMP1 etc. Under Business Inforamtion Warehouse (RS) you will see the following Objects

    1. S_RS_ADMWB -- > assign your Infoarea

    2. S_RS_COMP ---> "info area --> < specify ur IA 1, IA2 etc >

    ---> "Info cube --> '*'.

    Activity --> 03, 06 for the above objects.

    3. S_RS_ICUBE --> Activity = 03

    Infocube Subobject ='*'

    Info area = '*'

    Info cube = '*'

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Balaji
