2700146 - Share icon is not visible when attempting to share Connections in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom

Symptom

  • Share icon is not visible when attempting to share Connections in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
  • How can we share connections in SAP Analytics Cloud?

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Navigate to the Menu icon and select 'Connection'.
  3. Click on a Salesforce Connection for example, and attempt to click the share icon.png  icon in the top right hand corner.
  4. Notice that this icon is grayed out.

Cause

  • This is behavior by design and currently only the owner of the connection can share and/or delete the connection.

Resolution

  • SAP Analytics Cloud supports the connections (referenced on the below page) for sharing: Sharing an Import Data Connection
    • An enhancement request about "Being able to share Salesforce connection" has been created: 218798. Please vote this so that the Development team can consider implementing this is future releases of SAP Analytics Cloud.
  • For datasources which do not currently support sharing, you can export the connection by following the guide: Exporting Content to a .tgz File 
  • Additionally when deleting a user, transferring its content will also transfer the connection ownership(s) if there is any.
