2691447 - Users with read-only access can delete story filter in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • Users with read-only access can delete story filter in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.15.3

Cause

  • This behavior is bydesign. Viewers of the story can delete any story filters as filters are not recommended to be used for data security purposes in general.
  • The story viewers can also create story level filters themselves so it is deletable.

Resolution

  • Using a page filter could work around this as in read-only mode they can't be deleted.
  • User based Data Access Control could restrict users to have access to restricted data only.
