Global query variants in Bex 7.x - user authorisations

Hi Gurus!

I have problem with global query variants in new 7.x Bex.

The only users who can create such global variants have SAP_ALL, SAP_NEW authoriztions. All others are not able to see those variants when they created and also all other users are not able to create such variants. When they try to do it and unflag 'personal variant' check box and then enter technical name of the new variant they get message "no enough authorization...."

I have serched SAP notes for this but found nothing. Anybody know where and what I have to customize to get such global variants working for all users or knows about SAP note which describes this?

We are on SAP EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 and frontend BI 7.x Supp. Pack 9 Rev.1497

I would appreciate all answers.

    The people who are able to excute and create the global query varients have SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW is it.

    Because these profiles are having full administrator access. What you have to do is, you have to prepare a matrix with the authorizations that you need to create variants.

    Then create a role and add all the t-codes/authorizations related to the access in that role.

    For that you have to get in touch with basis folks to add all these authorizations in the role. if you need to create Auth objects, then go to RESECADMIN and create it.

    Assign and maintain thorugh RSECADMIN itself.

    Hope this would help you.

      Hi Mohan,

      thanks for you reply but I'm afraid this global query variants are not directly connected to tcodes authorization.

      I was looking for the name of auth. Bex object which keeps authorization for this and Bhawani answer solved my problem u2013 it works now.
