In this article, I will explain what are different roles related to Smart Business and how it can be used to control access to Smart Business apps.

 

SAP Smart Business Services involves following roles

  • Services.SmartBusinessAdministrator
  • Services.SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber

Once Smart Business is subscribed, 3 corresponding front-end roles are also created under HANA Cloud Portal.

  • SmartBusinessAdministrator
  • SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber
  • SmartBusinessModeler

 

These roles can be used to control access to Smart Business apps.

SmartBusinessAdministrator/ Services.SmartBusinessAdministrator

This role is required to access Smart Business Administrator App – Configure Business Systems.

Note: Both front-end and service roles are required to access an app. In case only front-end role is assigned user will be able to see the tile but will get 403 error when tile is clicked.

For example, if “SmartBusinessModeler” role is assigned but “Services.SmartBusinessModeler” is not assigned, user will be able to see modeler tiles but will get error when tile is clicked.

Note: In case you face any issue with Smart Business Service, you can create an Incident on SAP Support PortalInformation published on SAP site with the  components: CA-GTF-SB-HCP. You may also contact Smart Business team at smartbusiness@sap.com

I have tried to create an KPI, But When I tried to select a source, no any destination was found. But in my cloud account, there are many destinations, Do you know what’s wrong?

      Hi Jack,

      Thanks.

      The destination which are to be used by Smart Business must follow some naming convention. The name should be BusinessSystem01 … BusinessSystem10.


      Regards,

      Raja

          Hi Avishek,

          You have to configure the Business System  before you can use it.

          To configure the Business System, you need to go to “Configure Service” –> Configure Business System”.

          Regards,

          Lucky
