This functionality is opt in and will require customers to perform pre-planning steps before opting in.
First you need to configure the Analytics permissions in RBP:

  1. Go to Admin Center
  2. Manage Permission Roles
  3. Select the role
  4. go to Permission
  5. User Permissions
  6. Analytics Permissions
  7. select Functional Permissions and Option Permissions, and select the appropriate options within Functional Permissions and Option Permissions based on user requirement by following kba 2828598 - RBP for Report Canvas - How to control depending on the requirement?

After you set these permissions, it does not automatically effect the tools and options available on the Workforce Analytics Admin page. You can configure the appropriate Functional and Option Permissions on as many roles as required.

Next, you need to turn on the Opt-in Switch. When you are ready for these permissions to take effect, go to:

  1. Admin Center
  2. Manage Workforce Analytics
  3. and enable the Functional and Option Permissions switch

With this switch ON, the Permissions defined in the RBP Role will be used to control the tools and options available to you.
The permissions previously defined in User maintenance will be ignored.
Please note that if you do not have Workforce Analytics enabled (for example: WFA on HANA), you do not need to enable the second switch "Measure and Dimension Permissions".

NOTE: RBP Permission required to be able to access the 'Manage Workforce Analytics' page:
