August 30, 2023

If you find yourself lacking certain permissions required to perform specific tasks within SAP Analytics Cloud, you have the option to request a role. Note that this feature is not available for trial accounts.

To request a role, follow these steps:


Login to SAC: First, log into your SAP Analytics Cloud account using your credentials.


Access the Role Request Page: Once logged in, click on your profile image located in the upper-right corner of the screen. From the dropdown menu, select “Request Roles.”


Choose the Role Type: In the Role Configuration dialogue, you will be presented with the option to select the type of role you want to request:

Default Roles: If you believe you should have certain permissions by default but don’t, you can request the default role appropriate for your job function.

Self-Service Roles: If your administrator has enabled self-service role requests, you can request additional permissions beyond your default role through this option.


Select the Roles: Once you have chosen the role type, a list of available roles will be displayed. Choose the roles you need based on your job requirements.


Insert Comments: If needed, you can add additional information in the Comment box, explaining why you need the selected roles. This can help the administrator better understand your request.


Submit the Request: After selecting the roles and providing any necessary comments, click on “Send Request” to submit your role request.
