SAP BO Access to instances of scheduled report.

Hi Folks,

I have a requirement from user, in public reports a user must see only instances of reports scheduled by him/her, but should not see instances of reports scheduled by other users.

same applies for all users.

Is this requirement appropriate, is it possible to provide such kind of access in BO at public folders.

    I searched for this and found Mani's blog: https://blogs.sap.com/2013/04/03/businessobjects-instance-management/ - have you checked that?

    Hi Tammy,

    Thanks, i checked that, I did following comment there:

    I have a requirement, In Public folder, every user should only see instances of reports scheduled by themselves but not by others.

    Is this type of access is possible in public folders.?

    Thanks

    Yes, it is. You would create a custom access level and use the "View instances that the user owns" right instead of "View instances". This will allow the user to only see the instances that they have scheduled.

    Try to apply right ""View Objects that the User Owns" to everyone on the reports /Folders where you needs this to be configured. Whenever a user schedules a report, Instance of the particular report schedule will come under the ownership of the user who schedules the report. Hope I am making it clear here.
