3226488 - Existing queries still display the Lock icon even though the user now has the proper permission.

Symptom

  • Existing queries still display the Lock icon even though the user now has the proper permission.
  • However, inside the same query, if you delete the table and add it back again, the Lock icon is no longer appearing:

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics
  • SAP Analytics Cloud 

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create a Report. 
  • See some fields have a lock icon. 
  • Save Report. 
  • Grant RBP to the fields which have a lock icon. 
  • Edit the Report 
  • Edit the Data Source
  • See fields still have lock screen. 

Cause

This is currently expected behaviour. People Analytics still fetches the persisted model for existing queries. 

Resolution

The product currently does not support the permission changes post story creation – so story recreate or the entities of the query need to be removed and re-added – to reflect the current permissions.

Engineering are currently working on enhancing this in future releases to correctly reflect the updated RBP automatically.
