3267708 - "Comments are not supported with your permission settings" message when Limited Access is assigned using a filter "IS CURRENT USER" in Security - Roles

Symptom

  • Add Data Point Comment menu is grayed out. 
  • "Comments are not supported with your permission settings, please contact your administrator"
  • The users receive this message when when Limited Access is assigned to them using a filter "IS CURRENT USER" in Security - Roles. 
  • The message is generated even when the model is shared with the users with Full Control. 

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.15.20 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a role with Limited Access using a filter with IS CURRENT USER. 
    example:
    Activity - Write
    Filter - (Dimension.Manager IS CURRENT USER)
  2. Assign the role from step 1 to an user. Share the model with the user with appropriate access(Edit, Update, Maintain, for example).  
  3. Log on with the user and view a story. Try to add a data point comment. Notice "Add Data Point Comment" menu is grayed out. Receive the message "Comments are not supported with your permission settings, please contact your administrator"
  4. When the Limited Access in the role is changed to Dimension.Manager ID = XXXXX, the issue does not occur. 

Cause

By Design. Currently commenting with Dimension properties and IS_CURRENT USER operator at model level security is not supported. 

Resolution

The feature is not currently supported.
