Security For BW Web Application Designer

I work for ChevronTexaco as a BW Security Analyst. I have a request to set up roles for web template creation using the Web Application Designer. Where can I get help in setting up the security for these types of roles? My experience is in setting up roles for running and creating queries in BEX. I need to know what additional authorizations will enable web template creation. Setting up a trace in ST01 has been less than helpful since it dumps out tons of RS_COMP tracing that doesn't help me much.

The user wants to be able to create web templates for existing queries in BEX and restrict by rs_comp infocubes/areas/reportid, etc. and to be able to save to restricted role names. Are there new auth groups specific to this type of activity that I need to code for in adition to the basic end user or report builder authorizations?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Jeff,

    there are no special authorization objects for Web Templates. RS_COMP will still only work for queries, structures.... Saving to roles requires certain authorizations for the role (s_agr_*), here you can define the roles you can save templates to.

    Regards, Klaus
