Provision "roles" in HANA DB via SAP GRC AC

Hello,

I am currently facing an issue with importing ROLES from HANA DB.

I am able to import HAP(HANA Analytical Priviliges), but not roles.

Is it even possible to provision role in HANA DB, or only AP?

Thanks beforehand.

    Hi, I found this documentation, which might be helpful for you. Check out, if you can apply as described in the blog:

    • Hi Ivan, I read your discussion with Lars. Did you try to apply what he proposed? That one has to create the role definitions and activate them? I'm not an expert in this field at all, so I recommend taking Lars' advice.

    Not sure how and what you've tried but you can deploy privileges and roles with SAP HANA as long as these are defined as repository objects.

    There's a whole chapter on this in the developer guides.

    • In order to use repository roles one has to create the role definitions (.hdbrole files) in the repository and activate them.

      That's not something you can "switch on" in any application. If the application (GRC in this case) doesn't offer this option, then there is no option that you can make it create those files instead of the .sql files.
