Workbooks: Authorisation to change and save another User's workbook

Good morning.

The following question regarding workbook authorizations. A user has created a workbook and wants other users to be able to change and re-save that workbook. They all do have access to this workbook via shared roles.

We have granted access to all activities in the "S_RS_COMP1" authorization object, generated the role, with no success. The 'owner' is set to $USER

What access is required for other users to change and save another user's workbook?

Thank you so much and have wonderful weekend.

Hi Cornelius,

The authorization for workbooks is not under responsibility of S_RS_COMP or S_RS_COMP1. Those 2 are only for queries and query components.

Usually workbooks are assigned to Roles and this is the way how to share them between users. Therefore you need to allow changing of Role Menu for corresponding Role using S_USER_AGR authorization object.

The workbooks should be stored in the Roles and not in the Favorites of users.

This is important to enable this authorization concept.

Best regards,
