2844093 - Report Canvas not appearing when proxying


When giving permissions only to Report/Dashboards on Proxy Management the users are not able to see Report Canvas reports when proxying as users that have access to canvas reports.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite
  • Report Canvas
  • Proxy Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Proxy Management on admin center
  2. Grant proxy permissions specifically to Report/Dashboards for user A have proxy permissions on user B
  3. When accessing the instance as user A and then proxying as user B the Report Canvas reports will not appear even though the user B has access when logging into the instance directly.


This behavior is currently expected. The Report/Dashboards section on Proxy Management are just for Report Table reports and Dashboards. To give permissions to the report canvas it is required to give permissions to all modules.

Please open an enhancement request as per KBA 2090228 in case you judge this functionality is important for your business processes.
