2781879 - Report Author Changes when an Admin Edits a Report Owned by Another User


The ownership of a report changes when an Admin edits a report owned by another user.
The Change Author functionality was not triggered at all.
The last person who modified the report becomes the author.


SAP SuccessFactors Reporting and Analytics

Reproducing the Issue

1. Admin A edits a report owned by Admin B (e.g. Report - Table type).

2. Right after clicking Save, the Author is changed to Admin A and the report becomes listed under the My Reports tab of Admin A.

3. The report disappears from Admin B's My Reports and goes to the All Reports tab.


This is an Escape issue which is currently being fixed by our Engineering team.


This is a known issue and there is already an internal ticket being worked on for a fix (reference: AYT-24397).

The Author of the report should not be changed by the Edit action of another Admin.  The ownership should remain the same.
