SAP BI 4.2 SP05: Additional Rights for Scheduling Destination
Starting from 4.2 SP05, additional security rights have been introduced for the individual scheduling destinations. This is done to empower SAP Business Objects Administrators to better control which destinations they want to enable for end users to consume.
New Rights are introduced under General Rights for each destination:
- Schedule to File System
- Schedule to FTP
- Schedule to Inbox
- Schedule to SFTP
- Schedule to SMTP
Before 4.2 SP05
Prior to 4.2 SP05 release, when a user has “Schedule to Destinations” right, they could schedule to all available destinations.
So, if a user has a right:
And they go to BIL and select any Report for scheduling, under Destinations all scheduling destination will be visible. User can select any destination.
With 4.2 SP05
Additional rights have been introduced at each destination level. So, a user with only “schedule to destinations ” right
Will be able to schedule document to only “Default Enterprise location”
If an administrator wants to make any other destinations available for scheduling, they need to provide rights for each such destination. Let say an admin wants to enable Email and BI Inbox as destination option, additional appropriate rights should be enabled. See below:
With these rights, if a user tries to schedule a document, they should see Inbox and SMTP as well.
Please Note: Currently there seems to be a bug in this feature for a patch scenario. Will update once we have more details.
Note: In case of patch update to 4.2 SP05, users having “Schedule to destinations” rights before the upgrade will have all destination rights enabled by default. If administrators want to restrict the destination, they need to explicitly go and set individual destination rights.
