2965822 - User with view only rights on a model can edit private dimension properties and add members in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC)


A user with BI Content Creator or similar role can edit the properties and add members to a private dimension of a model even though they only have Read access rights on the model.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.14

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Admin user creates a model and shares it with User B (View rights only). 
  2. User B is power user(modeler) with a role similar to “BI Content Creator”
  3. User B is able to edit and modify the private dimensions of the model, including adding new dimension members 


  • Currently the private dimension privileges are not inherited from the model
  • Instead, when you go to Security > Roles you will find the private Dimensions of all models
  • If user B has the role "BI Content Creator" then they have the privileges to update/maintain all private dimensions of all models


In a future release we will change the behaviour so that private dimensions inherit the share rights of the model
