SAP Analytics Cloud Custom Widgets

Hi community,

I am unable to upload custom widgets in SAC even if I have role BI Admin and Application Creator.

As you can see from the screenshot in the Application Creator role there is no flag on Create, also it's not possible to flag it, even the System Owner is not able to flag the property:

The only user able to upload widgets is the System Owner.

Is there a way to assign this right?

    Fabio Pitzolu do you have a planning licence? There is a known bug where the upload of widget json files requires a planning licence. That is not intended and is a bug that will be fixed.

    We will always maintain the setting that an administrator needs to upload the widget in the first place. You are inviting externally hosted javascript to be part of your BI landscape and an admin should be the person who decides if that is appropriate or not.
