This was an SAP webcast today.  Below are my notes.  The usual SAP Legal Disclaimer applies; things in the future are subject to change.

You should think of security on data sets, when stories are published to Cloud, BI Platform, Server

What security do you have on this?

What can be done when designing on desktop before sharing?

Figure 2: Source: SAP

Figure 2 shows you need to think about security

There are two different kind of dataset groups - one is download approach including the universe and HANA

When using the Connect online approach Lumira respects user rights

Figure 2 shows you can enforce a refresh for the universe

Lumira Desktop Governance

Companies have concerns about sharing to the cloud

Figure 3: Source: SAP

IT can enforce desktop governance

It can handle the data source type

Preferences have configurable URLs – the admin can restrict

The speaker said you need the BI Platform with Lumira add-on installed (not Server; server is needed for sharing)

Figure 4: Source: SAP

Need to create text file

Looks at CMC and fetches properties for user

Using BOE for this and authentication type depends on what is set for CMC

Figure 5 shows the properties file; you create a file by naming, and maintain the parameters

Figure 6: Source: SAP

Figure 6 shows where the preferences defined.  You can allow the URL to be edited or not

Figure 7: Source: SAP

Figure 7 shows before and after screen shots.  The lower right shows “Editing URL has been disabled”

Figure 8: Source: SAP

Figure shows using the BI platform to define access to features

You can define security for a specific users or user groups

Figure 9: Source: SAP

Figure 9 shows before and after with the data source rights.  There is no access to the HANA or BW.

Before and after sharing rights is shown in Figure 10

Figure 11 shows priority of access rights.

Document Security

Infographics – what is use case?

Normally they are static

If have fresh on open set it will refresh

Figure 13: Source: SAP

Figure 13 shows you can share a story with team or others

If share story you share access to dataset as well

You can also stop sharing of dataset

SAP plans to work on security in Cloud – for the admin to give Cloud security access right – restricting sharing private, not public

Figure 14: Source: SAP

Figure 14 shows Lumira Server access.  The HANA admin needs to assign roles to user – data consumer or analyst.

Figure 15: Source: SAP

Figure 15 shows you share only with those who have access

You decide which roles to share in edit or view mode

Figure 16: Source: SAP

You can use BI platform security on the folders in CMC

Figure 17: Source: SAP

Figure 17 shows access to the universe, fetched from BI Platform

There are different options.

Universes have the option to do a data refresh to ensure have latest data

It can be an on demand refresh or scheduled refresh

For BW offline use case – might be able to have server side refresh for data like universes and user sees only data they have access to (future)

The session included a demonstration; when the recording is available I encourage you to watch it.
