Restrict by Cost Centre display of G/L accounts etc

Postby Elevate » Thu May 19, 2011 5:21 am

My client has a particular business requirement for Financial users working at branches to be restricted by Cost Centre in terms of viewing G/L accounts, PO, Internal Orders.

I understand this is not consistent with SAP standard authorisation objects and the client wants to know what options are available.

There are none unless you find a user exit or BAPI to add the checks. SAP's stance on on Cost Center is they do not care how you cut up the dime you spent, there is little to no risk assocated with viewing how you spent that dime. Granted the US government has an issue with cumulative infomation that if in the corect hands can elude to an impending Military action just based on what is being spent.

A lot of service organisations deem their cost centre data to sensitive from an internal and a commercial perspective. The risk may not affect the accuracy or validity of the financials, however there can be significant operational implications.
