Slide 9 Agenda Whats new BW Sponsored Data Criteria BW Reports Saved Favorites Optimizing Queries Administrators Security and ZSR
Slide 10 Whats new Effective 4/16/2012, Sponsored Security in BW will be opened to allow users to view revenue and expense information for all grants. This modification ensures that users have access to all allocations on their grants. With this security change, users will have to change their approach to executing BW reports to: Minimize run time Provide more useful results View data relevant to their job responsibilities
Slide 11 Whats new The security was changed by removing a filter that enables your ZSR security. Sponsored Program Auth Group was added as both a variable and a free characteristic to the following reports: GM Actuals List of Billings Due Sponsored Invoice Detail Sponsored Open Commitment Report
Slide 12 BW Sponsored Data Criteria The data in the GM table was recently cleaned, which will be transparent to the user because it removed data that did not meet the criteria for being sponsored.

Slide 15 Saved Favorites Depending on how your saved favorites are setup, these may need to be updated. We will look at 4 examples: 1.Saved favorite executed by your current security with no filters or conditions 2.Saved favorite executed by your current security with a filter set on a specific GL 3.Saved favorite with sponsored program conditions set and no filters or conditions 4.View a grant with allocations to different departments
Slide 16 Saved Favorite, 1 st Example This saved favorite executes based on users security without any filters or conditions to exclude data. The below example may time out because it is attempting to return data for all grants having activity from inception to March 2012.
Slide 17 Saved Favorite, 1 st Example cont Executing the report with conditions set on the variable screen will produce better results with a faster run time. Below is an example of how to set your variable screen for a range of sponsored programs while excluding the sponsored program not relevant to your job.
Slide 18 Saved Favorite, 2 nd Example Similar to the first example, the saved favorite executes based on the users security and only the required fields are filled in on the variable screen. This favorite has two filters set inside the report to show only travel expense for the current period.
Slide 19 Saved Favorite, 2 nd Example cont The report now returns all JH domestic travel expense, previously it was filtered by the users security settings. In this case, the saved favorite should be recreated to limit the report to data that is relevant to the users job.
Slide 20 Saved Favorite, 3 rd Example In this saved favorite, the report has filters applied on the variable screen to limit the data to a specific range of sponsored programs.
Slide 21 Saved Favorite, 3 rd Example cont The saved favorite will execute as it previously had. It will only display the results for the selected Sponsored Programs. No change is required for this saved favorite.
Slide 22 Saved Favorite, 4 th Example To view a grant with allocations to multiple departments, enter by Grant number on the variable screen.
Slide 23 Saved Favorite, 4 th Example Grants allocated to different departments are displayed
Slide 24 Optimizing Queries Searching a wide amount of data for narrow results. Setup your report using a single grant, format the report then run the report for the department. For example, to find all domestic travel commitments for the Department of Medicine. 1.First run the report for a single grant 2.Then, apply a filter for sponsored class Also, apply a filter to Key Figures to display commitments only 4.Remember to remove any Free Characteristics that should not be included
Slide 25 Optimizing Queries 5.Click the variable screen button, remove the grant and insert 17046* in the Sponsored Program Auth Group field.
Slide 26 Security/ZSR How to get access to Sponsored Reports: Use ZSR - SAP Roles Action Type
Slide 27 Security/ZSR What changed? Action Type, BW Roles with CC/IO Security Assignments no longer has "Grants Management" listed as an option under Report Area Correctly assigning the role will give the user BW Sponsored access.
Slide 28 Conclusion Sponsored Security in BW will be opened April 16, 2012 to allow users to view revenue and expense information for all grants. This modification ensures that users always have access to all allocations on their grants. Users may need to enter additional data on query screens to avoid runaway queries. Users may need to recreate their saved favorites. Administrators will not have to make any changes to current SAP access. Users have the responsibility to limit their activities to viewing grants and sponsored programs relevant to their job.
