I have a question about 0TCAIFAREA and 0INFOPROV.

According to a document stored in 'SDN Library',

there is a direction 'Add 0TCAIFAREA as an external hierarchy characteristic to 0INFOPROV' as a preparation

before migration into new analysis autorization from

old authorization objects.

What is this setting for?

In which situation, is this setting necessary?

Best regards,

Kaito Hosoyamada

    Hi Kaito,

    The InfoArea (0TCAIFAREA) is acting as a external hierarchy to the InfoProviders (0TCAIRPOV), and can hence be used to authorize whole InfoAreas.

      I have a similar problem that might be the same issue as this.

      I our company have they built Multiproviders with no naming convention hence I need to build Analysis authorization based on 0TCAIFAREA but I can not get this to work.

      In RSD1 is 0TCAIFAREA is set to be Authorization relevant and added as an external hierarchy characteristic to 0INFOPROV but still is 0TCAIFAREA not checked when running a reports, only 0TCAIPROV. I don't want to maintain the analysis authorization every time the BI team develop new Info Providers to add new values.

      Has this fact that 0TCAIFAREA is not checked even if it is authorization relevant to do with the Viritual Hierarchy? If so can this be fixed by running the method you suggest CL_RRHI_VIRT_INFOAREAHIER=>CREATE_DIRECTORY_ENTRY?

      If this method will fix my problem how is this the executed? Is there any decription of which steps I need to do in order to get this right that I can use?

      We run SAP BI 7.0 SP15

      Thanks in advance!
