Approve Role Requests for Your Users

To reduce the cost of system administration, every user can easily request missing roles in SAP Analytics Cloud. Another user with appropriate authorization then approves the requested role assignment.


  • A business user has sent a request for additional roles.
  • A system administrator or user with permission to approve the request has received it.
    This approver is defined in the settings of a role and can be:
    • The business user's manager, who is assigned in the user management area.
    • Any user with permission to change user data as defined in the role management area.


As an Approver, do the following:

  1. Once you've been notified that a role assignment has been requested, from the side navigation choose Start of the navigation path Security Next navigation step  RequestsEnd of the navigation path.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To approve a request, select the User ID and choose Approve. When you confirm the informational message that displays, the requested roles are immediately assigned to the user.
    • To reject a request, select the User ID and choose Reject. In the dialog that displays, you can enter a reason explaining why you rejected the request.
