In previous article How to Subscribe to SAP Smart Business Service, I explained how you can subscribe Smart Business Service.

In this article, I will explain what are different roles related to Smart Business and how it can be used to control access to Smart Business apps.

 

SAP Smart Business Services involves following roles

  • Services.SmartBusinessAdministrator

  • Services.SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber

  • Services.SmartBusinessModeler


 

After subscribing to Smart Business Service, click on “Smart Business Service (Roles & Destinations)” to see the roles.



 

Once Smart Business is subscribed, 3 corresponding front-end roles are also created under HANA Cloud Portal.



  • SmartBusinessAdministrator

  • SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber

  • SmartBusinessModeler


 

These roles can be used to control access to Smart Business apps.

SmartBusinessAdministrator/ Services.SmartBusinessAdministrator

This role is required to access Smart Business Administrator App – Configure Business Systems.



SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber/ Services.SmartBusinessAlertSubscriber

This role is required to access Smart Business Alerting App – Manage Smart Business Alerts.



SmartBusinessModeler/ Services.SmartBusinessModeler

This role is required to access Smart Business Modeler App – KPI Workspace, Create KPI, Create Evaluation, Configure KPI Tiles, Configure Drilldown, Manage KPI Associations, and Smart Business Content Transport



 

Note: Both front-end and service roles are required to access an app. In case only front-end role is assigned user will be able to see the tile but will get 403 error when tile is clicked.

For example, if “SmartBusinessModeler” role is assigned but “Services.SmartBusinessModeler” is not assigned, user will be able to see modeler tiles but will get error when tile is clicked.

 

Note: A complete implementation guide on Smart Business Service is also available at SAP-Press.
