3207570 - User is able to upload a file and start to create a Model even if Create Model permission is not granted in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

Symptom

  • If Execute permission for "Personal Data Acquisition" is turned on, but Create "Model" is turned off for the users, the option Create New - From CSV or Excel File is still available under Modeler, and users are able to upload a file and start to create a Model.
  • Turning off the Execute permission on "Personal Data Acquisition" is not a solution, because if this permission is turned off, the file upload will be disabled everywhere e.g. for Datasets, too.
  • Expectation: If the Model creation is not allowed to the users, they should not see even the "Create New - From CSV or Excel File" option under Modeler.

Environment

SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a test user and test custom role in SAC, e.g copy the "BI content viewer" role with different name.
  2. Add the permission Execute "Personal Data Acquisition".
  3. Save, assign your test user to this role.
  4. Log in with the test user => the option Create New - From CSV or Excel File will be available under Modeler, and user is able to upload a file and start to create a Model.
