Assumed that we've a BW/BI SAP system and a user request to access this system with only read-access privilege, which role/profile authorization I should use to assign to this user. Is there any built-in role or profile that already allows such read-access authorization and I can use directly to assign to this user?

Thanks a lot,

    Hi Marcnus:

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    From the template documents, I look for the templpate role S_RS_RREPU (Reporting user) but I could not find it in the list of all the pre-defined roles our SAP BW/SEM SAP system. It only list other roles and the pre-defined roles only starts with SAP_*.

    Do you know where I can search for this pre-defined role?

    Thanks a lot,
