How to restrict access to ABAP CDS

Hello All,

We have built lot of ABAP CDS views, but we don't want all our team to be able to open and change it. So we want to restrict access to who can view and who can change it. We have implemented data level access and I am not talking about that. How can we restrict certain users can see the view but cannot make changes to it.

if anyone has done this kind of Authorization (most probably using roles created using PFCG) please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

  • I think I have SAP_ALL Access so it does not show any restriction. But when I assigned it to a new user, the user does not have access to create ABAP CDS View. (Not even able to add ABAP project from ABAP Perspective). What are the roles that are to be assigned to a user to have access and able to create ABAP CDS from HANA Studio.

    it should be possible with:

    Authorization Object: S_DEVELOP

    OBJTYPE = DDLS (=CDS View)

    OBJNAME= ZABC* (= all ZABC* CDS Views)

    ACTVT=01 (01 Create, 02 Change, 03 Display )

    and to add Johann you would be restricting the SQL view of an CDS not the DDL names
