Read Only Access to the Workbench

Former Member

Anyone out there know if it is possible to grant a user Read Only Access to the Workbench?  Meaning they have permission to open the workbench and mii content within, but without the ability to change the content.  I was hoping that through some combination of UME actions we could provide this access to various team members to perform different job functions.

I'm not having much luck determining the correct actions to enable this, or whether it is even possible.  Below are actions that seemed promising but so far no luck coming up with a combination that meets my needs.

XMII_Workbench_ImportImport to Workbench
XMII_Workbench_Query_EditorRead/Write Permission for Templates
XMII_Workbench_Transaction_EditorRead/Write Permission for Transactions
XMII_Workbench_ExportExport From Workbench
XMII_Workbench_Transaction_TestRun Permission for Transactions
XMII_Workbench_ContentExport From Workbench
XMII_Workbench_Dyngraphic_EditorRead/Write Permission for Dynamic Graphics
XMII_Workbench_allAll Editors and the System Info Service
XMII_FileSystemBrowserAccess to use File System Browser service
XMII_FileSystem_RAccess to use Scheduler service
XMII_Transaction_ReadView Permission for Transaction Manager
XMII_Read_OnlyRead Only access to all screens

I would appreciate any insights out there on this topic.

Hi Brett,

You can create a new role example Cust_Workbench_ReadOnly and add the following actions to the role:

  • XMII_PermissionService
  • XMII_Workbench_Transaction_Test
  • XMII_AdminService
  • XMII_Workbench_Transaction_Editor
  • XMII_Workbench_Dyngraphic_Editor
  • XMII_Workbench_Query_Editor
  • XMII_BLSManagerService

Create the user with the roles

  • SAP_XMII_User
  • SAP_XMII_Read_Only
  • Cust_Workbench_ReadOnly

Now these users will have read only access to admin screens and workbench. When you try to edit a transaction or file and save it you will get error related to file write permission not being there.

Best regards,
