    what will happen if i already imported the SHINE that is in Github.

    To be clear which version(default one or imported) will be there, and what can i do if i want the default one without creating an new MDC instance.

    Hello Stephan

    I already have a trial MDC account running. I am unable to find the roles-sap.hana.democontent.epm.roles::Admin & sap.hana.democontent.epm.roles::User under the Granted roles in the Security tool of SAP WEB IDE.

    I have attached the screenshot for the same. Please assist me.

      Hi Gowthami,
      This feature was released on Oct20th, so if you created your HANA MDC before that, SHINE will not be present by default, that is why you do no see the SHINE roles. You can import SHINE manually by following steps Chpater 2 & 3 of SHINE documentation . Going forward any HANA MDC you create SHINE will be present by default
