3254803 - Delete facts option in a model not respecting data access control delete column setting in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


The delete facts option in a model does not respect the data access control (DAC) delete column setting in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)


  • The delete permission for a member of the Version dimension refers to the deletion of the dimension member itself and not to the underlying fact data.
  • Fact data deletion is controlled by the "maintain" privilege which covers data changes and there is no differentiation between setting a value to zero or deleting it.
  • If a user has write access to a dimension member via DAC, then that user will be able to update the fact data for that dimension by entering a zero (0), clearing the data in the table and publishing it, or going into the model and selecting the delete facts option.
