Turning off broadcasting functionality turns off BEx search functionality

Hi SAP Security Gurus,

I am currently working on a BI 7.3 migration project and one of the requirements is to restrict regular users from accessing broadcasting. I was able to do so but it impacted the FIND button in BEx Analyzer. Every time regular users search for queries, the system says NO OBJECT FOUND.

Turning off the broadcasting in authorization check S_RS_COMP and S_RS_COMP1 but doing so also disabled the FIND button. Kindly advise me on how to disable broadcasting without turning off the FIND functionality in Bex Analyzer.

Scenario #1: Broadcasting tool was deactivated for regular users and this also deactivated the Find feature

How I did it: I changed the ACTVT field in S_RS_COMP1 from Display and Execute to Change and Execute.


Test #1: Find a query BEx Analyzer 7.3

Result #1: “No Objects Found”

Workaround #1: A regular user can manually search a query from the Roles folder.  Please note that this is not as convenient as using the Find feature and so, the users demand to have the Find feature activated.


Test #2: Broadcast a query

Result #2: Correct.

Scenario #2: Broadcasting tool was activated and this activated the Find feature

How I did it: I changed the ACTVT field in S_RS_COMP1 from Change and Execute to Display and Execute.

Test #1: Find a query BEx Analyzer 7.3

Result #1: Correct. Queries can be searched without any authorization errors.


Test #2: Broadcast a query

Result #2: Users are now able to broadcast queries.

Thanks,

Marlon
