Are catalog roles described correctly in "Role Provisioning and Administration

I am working on the Learning Journey "Explore Provisioning and Administration with SAP HANA Cloud" In unit "
Creating SAP HANA Cloud Roles" there is a statement I simply don't understand.

Statement is "The database user grants catalog roles directly, and they can only be revoked by the same user."

I could not believe. So I created three users: ROLEADM1, ROLEADM2 (with system privilege ROLE ADMIN) and DIETER. ROLEADM1 created and granted a role to DIETER. ROLEADM2 revoked that role from DIETER.

In my understanding that contradicts the statement mentioned above.

What am I missing?

Kind regards


Hi Meinrad,

Thanks to bringing this to my attention, I checked the documentation and tested according to your example, and you are 100% correct that this is allowed now. 

When this change was implemented I'm not sure, but I will correct it with the next release of the SAP Learning Journey.

Hi Hay,

I think I found also a question in a quiz where the correct answer is simply not correct. There is a contradiction between the material and the answer that is considered to be correct.  I am just not sure if this is the right forum to discuss it.
