3465644 - 'Google Export' connection cannot be deleted even by the connection owner in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


Connection owner is also not able to delete the Google Export connection in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).


SAP Analytics Cloud Version: 2024.2.21

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the tenant.
  2. Go into Connections.
  3. Search for the connection "Google Export".
  4. Select the connection.

Notice that the delete option is grayed out.


This is by design.


The "Google Export" connection cannot be deleted because there is one "Google Export" connection which is provided by the SAP at the time of creation of the tenant which cannot be deleted. 

Also, during the creation of the tenant, whoever would have been the system owner will be assigned as the owner of the connection. Even the owner of the connection cannot delete this connection. 

If you change the system owner then also the connection owner cannot be changed for the "Google Export" connection. The content and object sharing will be having no issue even when you change the system owner.

Only case in which the owner can be changed is when you delete the user from the tenant.
