BEx Authorization Problems

Hello forum.

I'm trying to give appropriate access to my users to see Queries/Workbooks on our BI environment. This authorization concept is pretty new to me but I think I got the concept ok. The security model that we'd like to put in place is pretty simple; access will be mainly driven by InfoArea.

Thus, a user have 2 roles assigned as the following (Profile detail view under the user):

T-Bxxxxxx    <PRO> Profile for role ZSCM
  S_RS_COMP <OBJ> Business Explorer - Components
      T-Bxxxyyy <AUT> Business Explorer - Components
           ACTVT <FLD> Activity
           RSINFOAREA <FLD> InfoArea
           RSINFOCUBE <FLD> InfoCube
           RSCOMPID <FLD> Name (ID) of a reporting component
           RSZCOMPTP <FLD> Type of a reporting component

  S_USER_AGR <OBJ> Authorizations: Role Check
      T-Bxxxyyy <AUT> Authorizations: Role Check
           ACTVT <FLD> Activity
           ACT_GROUP <FLD> Role Name

In addition to that, I also have a "Generic" role that includes standard stuff such as

S_BDC_MONI - Batch Input Authorizations

S_OC_SEND - Authorization Object for Sending

S_RFC - Authorization Check for RFC Access

S_SCD0 - Change documents

S_SCRP_FRM - SAPscript: Layout set

S_SCRP_STY - SAPscript: Style

S_SCRP_TXT - SAPscript: Standard text

S_SPO_DEV - Spool: Device authorizations

S_TABU_DIS - Table Maintenance (via standard tools such as SM30)

S_TCODE - Transaction Code Check at Transaction Start

S_WF_PRCTP - Workflow: Authorizations for Process Types

Now, here's the problem, when opening Analyzer under a username that have these two roles attached to his profile, I can't see any Query or Workbooks. I thought my role definition was ok but apparently there's something missing somewhere.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & best regards

Just open the BEx Analyzer (I'm referring to the BW 3.x version), and after you click over a query (don't open it just select it there), you'll see the third button from the left called "Enter in Role"

There you go,
