3254878 - How to remove user permissions to create public views?


Public views are visible to all users who have access to the app. A view can be set to Public by individual users, key users, SAP (default delivery), or partners. All views that are set to Public are available within the Manage Views dialog.

A public view can be edited by the user who created it and by key users. All other users can only display the public view.




Any end user can create views for themselves. They can even make the views public for others if the administrator has allowed this.


Use Manage Launchpad Settings app to set the UI5FLEX_ENABLE_VARIANTS parameter. It specifies if users are allowed to create and adapt views and whether they're allowed to share them.

This is a global setting. There are three options:

  • PUBLIC (default)

    Users are allowed to create and adapt new views. By selecting the Public checkbox, they can also share them with other users.


    Users are allowed to create and adapt new views, but the Public checkbox is not displayed, preventing users from sharing views.

  • NONE

    Users are not allowed to create or adapt views. They can still set a view as favorite and change their default view. Optionally, they can also choose whether a view should be applied automatically, meaning a search should immediately be triggered as soon as the view is selected.
