2327225 - Import Data Connections created in SAP Analytics Cloud are not visible for other users


  • Connections created in SAP Analytics Cloud cannot be shared between users.
  • Import Data Connections created by a user are not visible for any other user.
  • Users having Admin roles are also not able to see connections created by other users.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in with User "A" having Admin role assigned and create an Import Data Connection successfully.
  2. Now log in with User "B" and observe that the connection created before (with user "A") is not visible.


  • The created Import Data Connection has not been shared or cannot be shared.


  1. Check here if, the created connection can be shared.
    • Share if it is possible.
  2. In case the connection cannot be shared, please take a look at Idea here and vote for it.
    • Workaround:
      • As soon as a model has been created based on the connection created by user "A", user "B" with appropriate rights will be able to use this model (and the data imported from connection) for reporting.
      • In order to report from the most recent dataset a schedule needs to be set by the connection creator user "A".
      • To run a schedule by user "B" the connection must be shared first, then a new import job must be created by user "B" based on the shared connection.
