Bex Report Performance

Dear Friends,

I would like to know is the complex authorizations can also cause the Bex report performance.

One of my scenerio is like there are two users A & B

A is having relevant authorizations for reporting, Drill down etc which are required.

B is having SAP All authorization.

When the same report has been executed by both users on the same system.

the data retrieved by user B(SAP_ALL authorization) is quite faster than User A.

Its like ther diffference of about 10 minutes.

There are some exsclude selections in report.

So my conclusion is like the complex authorizations do also hampers the query performance.

Please confirm & share your views.

Thanks & Best Regards,

Vivek Tripathi

    Hi Vivek,

    Some times complex authorisations may reduce the query performance. For example Complex authorization checks on large hierarchies including several hierarchy levels can slow down query performance.

    To know where exactly you are facing this problem i suggest you to analyze your query using RSRT and RSRTTRACE tcode.

    For more information on the same go through tthe sides 134+ in the below provided url.

    Hope this helps you.

    It seems strange.

    BI auth can affect on performance, but 10 min difference it's too much.

    How much time runs report with SAP_ALL auth ?

      Hi Vivek

      Can you help us understand what was the exact problem and how you resolved it / solution at Extraction / Modeling / Reporting end.

      I have a quite similiar issue with my report i have Header + Item report on Infoset

      u2022 Header report takes seconds and item report takes minutes

      u2022 The same report executed with exact parameter has inconsistent performance results meaning one time it takes 1 minutes next time same report same user and same authorization takes 5 minutes.

      Any help on this would be really greatfull. Suspecting is not an issue with the report at all , as no changes happened between the pre and post check.

      _Additional Information : _

      We Create Secondary -Bitmap index every week end i do not see that is one of the route cause.

      Except that we have our regular daily loads that are running for master data loads and transaction data loads in series.

      Thanks in Advance.

      Much Regards
