2679261 - Custom BI roles taking Planning Standard License when BI Licenses Available in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Custom BI roles takes Planning Standard License when BI Licenses Available in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.13.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a custom role including some "Read" access and "Maintain" access to some dimensions, or a role including "Read" access to Users, Teams and Connections.
  2. These permissions are part of BI Admin role. Notice in System > Monitor that BI Licenses are available. Users assign to these roles can consume BI license instead of Planning standard lincense.
  3. Notice that Users assigned the custom role consumes a Planning Standard License and the custom role also appears in the Planning Standard License section.


The permanent solution will be a part of the version 2018.18 release. When this gets released, it will automatically fix the licensing info for user, roles and usage on the system monitor page.
