By default, users belonging to the administrators group have full access rights and all other users are only granted
the "Log on to SAP BusinessObjects Mobile application" right unless these rights are explicitly denied.

Previous Versions 

 The Mobile application rights did not exist in XI R2 and XI 3.x releases. Hence, if you are upgrading or migrating
from an XI R2 or XI 3.x system to a 4.0 system, rights for users and groups need to be configured in the 4.0
