2951049 - User with View access shared by model owner can change the model SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • User with View access shared by model owner can change the model SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.8.15

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant.
  2. Share one private model to another user with only View Access.
  3. Log out and log on with the other user.
    => The shared model appears in My Files.
    => If selecting the model, the Edit icon is disabled.
  4. Open the model and then go to Model Preferences > Access and Privacy.
    => The user has Maintain privilege on the model. 
    => The user can change the dimension name, user authorization, etc. in that model.


  • This is only an UI issue, because the user cannot change model description, add dimension or do other model changes.
  • On the other hand, the privileges to maintain a dimension (dimension change) are not inherited from the model. They must be maintained in the "Security" > "Roles" section. 
    There you can specify which role should have "Read", "Update", "Delete" or "Maintain" privileges for a certain dimension. 


  • The fix for the UI issue is planning to be delivered with wave 2020.21.
