SAP Fiori analytical apps can access an SAP HANA database on behalf of an individual user to retrieve data according to the user’s authorizations.

Caution Caution

Users must have the same user names in the ABAP front-end system and the SAP HANA system.

User names in SAP HANA have to comply with the following syntactical rules:

  • User names have to start with a letter.

  • User names can contain letters (Aa-Zz), digits, and underscores (“_”).

  • Other characters like dots or minus are not allowed.

User names in SAP ABAP can contain characters that are not allowed in SAP HANA. If you use SAP HANA and SAP ABAP, ensure that your ABAP users also comply with the SAP HANA rules.

End of the caution.
