Recipe management authorization

I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I'll try.

We're running recipe management and have for some years. Our previous expert retired some time ago and now we've gotten a challenge that we're struggling with.

Customer wants to limit down the number of users that can make a substance of a specific 'Specification type'. At the same time they're still supposed to be able to make other substances.

I've activated trace and checked as much as I can but it seems that when creating a substance the system doesn't seem to check the authorization objects that it looks like might control the specification type.

Anybody who can help me out ? Any suggestions will be appeciated.

Hi Trygve

Not 100% sure. As far as I know, it is only possible to assign an authorization group to a specification category, not a specification type. Perhaps you could implement a user exit (category SUB_SCATCH) with a custom-built auths check and assign it to the specification type.

You could also check SAP notes 667440 and 1122700.
