Maintaining Access Control Lists (ACL) in Knowledge Management IN BIW


BEx Information Broadcasting generates and uses documents and links in Knowledge Management. Knowledge Management protects these documents and links using access control lists (ACL). Individual documents, links and folders can be provided with authorizations.

During precalculation of BEx Web Applications using Information Broadcasting, documents are generated in the BW system in background processing and these are then stored in Knowledge Management for the portal. During background processing, the service user bw_service is used (see ‎Structure linkInformation Broadcasting as Background Processing). You should make sure that users do not have access to all Knowledge Management folders, but only those you deem necessary.


Access Control Lists (ACL) are maintained in Knowledge Management. Authorizations can be maintained at the document, link or folder.

1. All repositories and their content can be displayed with the iView Content Administration ® KM Content.

2. The details can be opened using the popup menus.

3. The authorizations can be determined using Settings ® Authorizations. You can only maintain the authorizations if you are the owner of the object.
