Lock a field in material master from change

Hi all,

I have a requirement to protect the field MARC-SERNP 'Serial number profile', found within the material master data 'Sales General/Plant' and 'Plant data / stor.2' tabs, from being changed by all but two employees.

I cannot decide how to best approach this - I can see how I could restrict change access to the material master data views entirely through authorisation settings, but I can't see how to take it to the next level to a specific field. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions please?

Kind regards
Andy

Hi,

A couple of options are:

1. Create a tx variant with that field as display only. Assign variant to a custom tx and distribute (cons are that most users use the custom tx).
2. Work with a developer to use the enhancement framework to restrict that field to display only unless users have additional auth (e.g. new auth object or reuse existing).

Hi Al.
Thanks for your suggestions - I went for option 1, which works fine :-)
