The role of the business analyst in Agile is best suited as part of the responsibilities of the product owner. However, it is worth remembering that the Agile Manifesto Principles speak of “flexible roles and equality.” Flexibility in delivery and design are among the core principles of Agile.
As a business analyst, he or she must be versatile enough to be able to juggle the multiple roles assigned to everyone in the Agile environment.Critical thinking, great communication skills, and an aptitude for analysis are the most important soft skills necessary to thrive as a BA.

BA can play a role of a product owner or a SCRUM master, depending upon his knowledge about the domain. If the BA has considerable knowledge of the domain in which the project is being exercised, then he can be a product owner, whose sole purpose is to conduct JAD sessions and gather requirements in the form of user stories. He/She shall decide the timeline of the SPRINT and make sure the team's morale is lifted and is on track with the SPRINT, thereby making sure no backlogs are made.

Whereas, as a SCRUM master the BA shall assist the Product owner with conducting the JAD sessions  successfully and also choose the external and internal stakeholders for the project.
