2544767 - Setting Analytics default autocreate role with Report Center enabled


It is not possible to access the Analytics sub tab with Report Center enabled (and no Workforce Analytics present) and therefore Roles Maintenance to set the default role.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Canvas Report / ORD


A default Role is not enabled in Analytics backend.


After ORD is activated in provisioning, a defult user have to be enabled in the Analytics backend to allow all new user to be created automatically when they access the canvas (ORD).

The first user to access Analytics will automatically receive the admin role Implementation Partner. That user can open a new Report - Canvas from Report Center, and from the page editor select Admin - Roles Maintenance, select the role and from the Tools dropdown make it the default role.

Customer can also set the default role from his side, as seen on KBA 2342994 - How to create a new role and make it default role in Online Report Designer.
