BOBJ Auto User Import does not create users correctly



We are facing a new issue suddenly in BOBJ, where when a new User ID is created in our HANA BW system, from which BOBJ gets its user data, the user ID is getting created as <BWSystemID>~<Client number>/<User ID>. This is causing authentication issues when the user is executing Webi reports. At the moment we're fixing this issue by removing all characters to the left of <User ID> and then saving the ID, but since this is a manual workaround we would like to see if there is a permanent fix.

We're using SAP Authentication. The current version of BOBJ is 4.1 SP10 Patch 9 or

Our BOBJ team says that there was no recent upgrade or patch update, but I'm not sure if they're entirely clued in or just trying to evade responsibility.
