Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAC system.
  2. Create a user role e.g. copy BI Content Creator (this does not contain the Manage permission for Public File privilege).
  3. Create a user with BI Intelligence license and assign the created custom role to the user.
  4. Go to model System / Common / SAC Content/ Admin Cockpit: RESOURCE
  5. Share the model with View permission to the test user.
  6. Login with the test user to SAC.
  7. Create a new Story based on the model RESOURCE: New Story with Canvas page
  8. Select a Table => Server Error: You have no authorization to the model.
  9. Select a Chart => Unable to retrieve data from the data source. Error: [You have no authorization to the model.]
  10. Now login with the SAC Administrator user and add the Manage permission for Public File privilege to your custom role and Save.
  11. Login again with your test user.
  12. Try to create the same Story => table/chart will be created successfully.
  13. But from now the user will have access also to the System Folder.
