Global query variants in Bex 7.x - user authorisations

Hi Gurus!

I have problem with global query variants in new 7.x Bex.

The only users who can create such global variants have SAP_ALL, SAP_NEW authoriztions. All others are not able to see those variants when they created and also all other users are not able to create such variants. When they try to do it and unflag 'personal variant' check box and then enter technical name of the new variant they get message "no enough authorization...."

I have serched SAP notes for this but found nothing. Anybody know where and what I have to customize to get such global variants working for all users or knows about SAP note which describes this?

We are on SAP EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 and frontend BI 7.x Supp. Pack 9 Rev.1497

I would appreciate all answers.

If you are using 7.x authorizations then S_RS_PARAM is the authoirzation object for Business Explorer - Variants in Variable Screen.

If in BI7 you are using the old authorization concept(3.x) then you need to give access to the authorization object S_RS_GVAR (Business Explorer - Global variables).
