I want to share with other user my newly created connection. But the 'share' icon in the right corner is grey.

My privileges are the following:

Thank you so much for your help.

    Hello Stephanie,

    Which connection type do you use? Import or Live Data connection?

    Please note that if you use Import Data Connection, not all the connection type support the sharing possibility.

    You can get more information about this on our online help document at:

    There is also a KBA created regarding Import Data Connection sharing.

    Best regards,

    • Yes, you can create a shared import connection if they are of this type:

      • SAP BW
      • Google Drive
      • Google BigQuery
      • OData Services
      • SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer
      • SAP Business ByDesign Analytics
      • SAP SuccessFactors
      • SAP S/4 HANA

      Anyway, when you share access to the story (built on this model), they have access to the data queried by the user in the hardcoded connection. Also, people with the Modeller permission will be able to access the data.
