Hi,

on the archive, we have this topic :

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3963183 , posted by mgrackin on 29-09-2016. Does somebody know how to solve this ? I tried to find in the manuals, on SAP-Notes, on SCN. But the only thing I found is the above topic in the archive.

Thanks !

You may try to grant "Query script-Enable viewing" and "Query script - enable editing" in Application->Web Intelligence to this user.

I'm a bit late to seeing this question but there are a few places where rights to Shared Elements needs to be granted. I experienced this issue when missing #2 below on the document from which I wanted to create a Shared Element.

1) Content > SharedElement > Add Objects to Folder

2) Content > Web Intelligence > Publish Shared Elements

3) Application > Web Intelligence > Sharing: Publish Shared Elements

4) Application > Web Intelligence > Sharing: Insert Shared Elements

Michael,

I cannot find #2. Where is it located?

Thanks,

John

it depends on which version of BO you have. Shared element is implemented in BI 4.2 version

We have BusinessObjects 4.2, SP3.

@John and @Charles - You should see these rights exactly where I stated they would be if you are at least running BOB 4.2 SP3.

We have version 4.2 SP4.

@Michael and @Charles I found #1 on the rights for folders, but #2 is not there. Neither of them appear as rights on the WebI document, but since it inherits the folder rights it should be passed down.

Thanks John

We're on 4.2 SP4 and don't have a Content > SharedElement item in the list of rights...

Types available:

You have to go into 'Assign Security' and then 'Advanced' and then 'Add/Remove Rights'

Hi. Has anyone identified the configuration for 4.2 SP4? #2 Content> Web Intelligence>Publish Elements is not available. The new Rights under Content>SharedElement did not resolve the Shared Element Save As greyed out after a document save.

#2 Content> Web Intelligence>Publish Elements is missing after upgrade to 4.2 SP4. See note 2538552:

We saw that the right

Content > Web Intelligence > Publish Shared Elements

is completely missing in BIP 4.2 SP3 P12 - it was there in P8. In our environment not even the Administrator is able to publish a shared element after a report has been saved in any folder due to the fact that the right is not available in the system but obviously checked by WebI :)

There is a note for this issue with the fix versions as well...
