SAP IQ Cockpit - Creating Technical User

  • SAP IQ cockpit available in SAP IQ 16 sp08 is a web interface tool,  SAP IQ cockpit administration does support SAP IQ versions 15.3 or later.   For SAP IQ 15.3 and 15.4 authority based security is used, while SAP IQ 16 uses role-based security.

Technical User is a dedicated account used for creating and scheduling collection jobs and monitoring, and triggering alerts based on predefined thresholds.

There are two parts to the account: the SAP IQ part and the SAP IQ Cockpit part. Both parts are created using the Create  User wizard. The technical user account must have a password and be assigned to the IQC_TECHNICAL_USER_POLICY login policy. Technical user can be created authority-based or role-based depending on  your  SAP IQ version.

CREATE USER statement should not used for creating Technical User,  as it will not create SAP IQ cockpit part.  Technical user can not  be deleted and should not be modified,  as modifications are not updated to the SAP IQ Cockpit part.
