3069812 - By restricting user access, the access via direct link or file search will be still active for the file creator/owner in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • By restricting user access e.g. changing team membership or roles, the access via direct link or file search will be still active for the file creator/owner.
  • Expectation is to make possible to change the file ownership: "transfer content to a new owner".
  • Currently, this is possible only by deleting the user: Deleting Users.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a team by Creating Teams and add the team to the default "BI Content Creator" role e.g. Test_Modeler_Team: Assigning Roles to Users and Teams.
  2. Create a New User e.g. Test_User1 and add to the previously created team.
  3. The new test user creates story and model in the team folder which is available for him via My Files / Test_Modeler_Team.
  4. Remove the user from the team.
  5. Now logon with the user and check the access:
    • the user cannot see the team folder by search: Browse - Files
    • but by searching on the model/story name or by direct link both files are available for him.
    • if the user opens the model/story, it will show that it is listed directly in My Folders.
