Question about SAP APO connection


Hi team,

I'm facing permission issue when connecting SAP APO system using synapse data copy tool. It would be appreciated if you can help to identify the problem here.

I created linked service with SAP BW Open Hub, and tried to connect to our APO test environment.
Although I can connect and see table list, it failed to preview data with below error.

SapRfcClient operation '/SAPDS/RFC_READ_TABLE2' failed. Error message:
'このアクティビティを実行する権限がありません' このアクティビティを実行する権限がありません
Activity ID: 95cfed0c-26cd-4a14-af10-542280721035

('このアクティビティを実行する権限がありません' means "You do not have permission to perform this activity")
Does this mean this user account doesn't have enough permission?
Let me know if you need further detail.

    Hello @Anonymous ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    From my understanding you were able to view the table list but when you try to preview the data you are receiving the above error. Please correct if my understanding is incorrect.

    Seems like this issue is from SAP side and not ADF. Below are few issues discussed in SAP knowledge base articles related to similar issues.

    Please refer to above SAP knowledge base articles and see if that helps. And if the solutions discussed in them are not helpful to resolve the issue, then we recommend reaching out in SAP community forum or filing a support ticket with SAP for further analysis.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
