2691012 - Multiple copies of dimensions when assigning roles in Security


When assigning rights to dimensions in roles there are multiple copies of some dimensions such as Time, Version, Date, etc.

This is because multiple models have the same dimension name, however there is no way to differentiate them when assigning roles.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.15

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Security / Roles and choose an existing Role or create a new one and edit it.

Expand the Dimension folder, you will likely see multiple copies of the Time, Version, Date or other dimensions with the same name.


This is due to the fact that the same default dimension names are used in each model.


If you hover over any dimension for a few moments, you will see the fully qualified name of the dimension that contains the model name.

This will allow you to differentiate and determine which dimension belongs to which model.
