3488261 - Is there any detailed permission control on OpenSearch, besides admin_group in IAS?


If configured admin_groups in SAML Configuration Parameters as described on the Help Portal Prerequisites | SAP Help Portal and logged in with a user that belongs to the IAS user group, OpenSearch allowed us to do configuration there. Conversely, when I logged in with a user that didn't let me belong to admin_group, OpenSearch didn't show anything when I pressed each menu, and almost nothing could be done.

If I use OpenSearch with IAS authentication, is it mandatory for the logged in user to belong to admin_group?
In other words, is there any detailed permission control on OpenSearch?
