Restrict Product Category Transfer to SHC from Cata

Post by adp99 » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:37 pm

Hello SRM Experts,

I want to control the product categories of the items that users can shop. I assigned the allowed product categories per department in Extended Attributes in PPOMA_BBP. When I tested this restriction via Internal Goods/ Services, I got my desired result (I was prompted "No authorization to purchase from product category '&' "). However when I tried shopping via Catalog (MDM), I was allowed to order items from categories not included in PPOMA_BBP. Is there a way to also restrict the product categories when users shop via punch-out catalogs?

Thanks in advance! :)

You can use a "Mask" or "Name Search" within the MDM catalog to restrict this. The Mask or Name Search will then be set up in the web service configuration and the web service can then be assigned to a user within ppoma. Assigning product categories in ppoma does NOT impact what the user can/cannot see within the catalog as you discovered, you have to use the Mask or Named Search.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for the reply. That is one of our options but we do not want to do it as much as possible since we will have to create more than a hundred masks/ named searches to be assigned per division (not department as I've earlier mentioned). That would be tedious to maintain later on. Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks!

You can add an edit in BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI, where you test the PPOMA_BBP attributes for the user against catalog-based shopping cart items.

See if that will work for you.

Regards, Dean.
