3148547 - Save option greyed out in Canvas query


Consider user "A" creates a canvas query and added it in a Report Distributor Bundle, and if user "B" tries to open the query from Report Distributor and edits it, the SAVE option will remain  greyed out.


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