  • "SAML Assertion Attributes" are configured in SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Administration Console.
  • SAML attributes are not visible when mapping SAML attributes in the "Users" menu is SAP Analytics Cloud.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

  • SAP Cloud Platform Identity

Reproducing the Issue

For SAP Data Center Tenants (eg. EU1) ONLY:

  • See the prerequisites for "Mapping SAML Attributes to Users":
  • "Before you can map SAML attributes to users, you or the owner of your organization’s S-User account must submit an SAP support ticket using the component: LOD-ANA-BI. In the support ticket, indicate that you want to map SAML attributes to user profiles and include your SAP Analytics Cloud tenant URL."

For Non SAP Data Center Tenants (eg. EU10):

  • If you are facing this issue with a NON-SAP Data Center Tenant (eg. EU10), please take a look at the following KBA 2922448 - SAML Attribute Mapping in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom Master KBA
