System Authorization to use SAP HANA Smart Data Access

You need to add SAP HANA system authorization CREATE REMOTE SOURCE to create a remote source. If the remote source is not created with the SAP<SID> user but with a different database user instead, then this database user must assign the corresponding object authorizations to the SAP<SID> user (CREATE VIRTUAL TABLE and DROP).

Navigate to user profile in Security tab and go to System privilege.
