3048689 - User Can't Save Public Layout and Bookmarks in Web Dynpro Report Apps

Symptom

In Web Dynpro report apps, e.g. "Journal Entry Analyzer", "Balance Sheet/Income Statement - Multidimensional", "Trial Balance", "Trial Balance Comparison", some users can't share Variants and Query Views with other users. In other words, it is not possible to save public layout and bookmarks.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Web Dynpro app "Journal Entry Analyzer", make your selections for the required parameters, and adjust the layout according to a journal report.
  2. When you have finished the layout, click the dropdown arrow next to the Standard. The My Views dialog box is displayed.
  3. Click Save As, the choice "Save as Public" is missing for some user.
  4. You may also follow the similar steps to click dropdown arrow next to the <Standard Query View>, after click Save As, the choice "Shared" is missing for some users.

Cause

Only key users have the authorization to create public views/bookmarks. 
Business Catalog SAP_CORE_BC_EXT must be assigned to the Business Roles which in turn are assigned to users. Doing this would enable Key User tools for the user. 
For example, business role SAP_BR_ADMINISTRATOR has business catalog SAP_CORE_BC_EXT assigned, so that administrator user is able to share the layout and bookmarks.

Resolution

If you want the user to have authorization to save public layout and bookmarks, please make sure that the user has Business Catalog SAP_CORE_BC_EXT assigned.
