2678545 - When creating role in SAC I can only select "Read" for "Role", "User" and "Team", all other check boxes are grayed out


When creating a role in SAC user is not able to select any of the check boxes under Create / Update / Delete for "Role", "User", or "Team". Only Read check boxes are available.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.13

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to "Security" / "Roles"
  2. Click on "Create a new Role"
  3. When you get to the Role assignment grid, options to Create, Update and Delete will be greyed out.


  • This issue occurs due to fact that some roles have default limitations that cannot be removed for the options you attempt to select.
  • For instance, if you create an "Analytics Hub" role you cannot assign Create/Update/Delete roles for Role, User or Team.



  • However, if you choose a "Business Intelligence" Role you will be able to assign the roles




Make sure you select the correct License type for the role you are creating as some license types have limitations that cannot be manually removed.
