 Authorizations and Roles for Analytical Apps and SAP Smart Business Apps Locate this document in the navigation structure


SAP Fiori analytical apps and SAP Smart Business apps are based on SAP HANA. These apps generate OData requests that expose certain views in SAP HANA. Therefore, these apps follow the authorization mechanisms provided by SAP HANA.

In particular, a user of one of these apps must have a matching SAP HANA database user through which access to SAP HANA database content is controlled. Therefore, the user’s roles in the app and the user’s privileges in SAP HANA have to be aligned accordingly.

For information about setting up the required authorizations and roles, see the corresponding Configuration sections of the SAP Fiori for SAP Business Suite documentation and the Administration Guide for SAP Smart Business Applications.
