Create and Use Insights
After you have drilled down to the data details according to your needs and analyzed your data, you might want to save this insight.
If you are assigned to the creator or admin role, you can save an insight in the public or your private files.
If you are assigned to a viewer role, you can save an insight in your private files only. To do this an administrator can grant the private insight privilege to users with no create rights on the public or private files by creating a custom role and assigning the private insight privilege. With the private insight privilege, these users can also share and delete their insights however they can't edit or rename the insight in the file repository. For more information on creating custom roles, please see Create Roles.
Clickin the upper left corner of data analyzer to save an insight.
In the Save Insight dialog select the file location (public or private) for your insight and enter a name and description for it. The saved insight does not only appear in the files folder you have saved the insight to but also under the Recent Files section of the data analyzer start page.
(optional) In the Advanced Options section of the Save Insight dialog you can customize dynamic variables and prompts:
- Select Automatically open prompt when insight opens if you want to automatically open the prompt when the insight is opened
Select Keep last saved values for dynamic variables if you want to keep the last selected values for dynamic variables
After saving an insight, the insight name is displayed in the header of data analyzer. Saving an insight also creates an insight ID that is displayed in the URL, for example, https://<hostname>/sap/fpa/ui/app.html#/dataanalyzer&/dz/1A6006079B878D23EF65D16ACCBB65C4
Insights are labled with the symbol in front of the insight name and can be found under the file type Insight.
Changes to existing insights can be made depending on permissions for your user role and for the file repository.
For the time being you can share insights by email but you can’t create a custom link.
