2844093 - Report Canvas not appearing when proxying


When giving permissions only to Report/Dashboards on Proxy Management the users are not able to see Report Canvas reports when proxying as users that have access to canvas reports.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Proxy Management on admin center
  2. Grant proxy permissions specifically to Report/Dashboards for user A have proxy permissions on user B
  3. When accessing the instance as user A and then proxying as user B the Report Canvas reports will not appear even though the user B has access when logging into the instance directly.


Proxy permissions for Canvas reporting (Planning) have not been granted.


Grant the proxy permission 'Planning' during the proxy assignment that is for the Canvas Reports section and WFA/WFP.
