Procedure documentationExtending the Sharing of Dashboard Links


After you create HANA live dashboards, you can share them with users. The link to the dashboards will then be available in the dashboard work centers of those users. However, the users have to be assigned either the Sales Professional (SALESPRO) or the Marketing Professional (MARKETINGPRO) business role. You use this procedure if you wish to extend this feature to other business roles.
