2812046 - Granting full control right to user has no effect on end user's authorizations in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • Granting full control right has no effect in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
  • Objects (models, stories) were moved to a different folder than the Public folder.
  • Security is defined as Read for All Users and Full Control for BI Admin roles.
  • User with BI Admin role cannot save content in the folder getting an error "This file cannot be saved here".  


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a File. Share it giving Full Control to Team “BI_Admin”.
  2. Add new user UserA to role “BI_Admin”.
  3. UserA does not have full control to the file shared in step 1.


This is a user issue where sharing permissions have been granted to a team using the sharing dialog in My Files view, but did not actually add the users to the team.
This confusion occurred because the name of the team was exactly the same as the role “BI_Admin”. The customer added users to the Role but no to team resulting in the issue.


Add the user to the team “BI_Admin” to resolve this issue.
