Authorizations - cannot start Query Designer/BEx Analyzer

I test setting up authorizations that could discreminate between basic and power users.

I've created a role for basic users (all authorizations on their own reports using $USER variable) but such a user cannot start the Query Designer nor the BEx Analyzer. An error message is obtained and the application terminates.

Is there a specific authorization to include in the user's profile so as to be able to use the Reporting applications?


Best wishes for 2005.

    Hi Laurent,

    what error message do you get?

    easiest is set up a trace (ST01). That should show you what authorization is missing? If you are using reporting authorizations you have to run the trace in RSSM.

    Let me know if you have further questions

      Hello guys!

      I eventually got the right answer from SAP (Holger Knödler). Let me share it with you.

      The relevant info can be found in SAP notes 726874 and 93254.

      I quote Holger:


      Dear Laurent,

      30.12.2004 08:02:05

      if you compare the standard profile S_RS_ALL in a BW2.0B System and

      in BW 3.5 you see that it is correctly updated, there are even more

      fields than in BW2.0. But in both no RFCH. The reason to need RFCH are

      some changings in the basis. You can read the details in the basis

      note 726874.

      Kind regards and Happy New Year,

      Best wishes again!
