3278994 - Users are being assigned roles they shouldn't have in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


After the QRC4 2022 update, looking at a list of users in SAC shows many users being assigned roles that they should not have.  This appears to only occur when SAML mapping of roles is being used and the roles appear to be a visual bug.  The users do not get the rights associated with the roles that they appear to have been assigned.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.21.7

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Have a SAC tenant set up to use SAML mapping
  2. Have a user log on - they will get the correct SAML mapped roles assigned to them
  3. have a second user observe the first users roles, after a few minutes the first user will get assigned roles which they should not have.
  4. It is only a visual bug though - the first user does not actually get any additional rights.
