Report Writer – data filtering according to user profile

0 pts.

I was asked to modify a FI/CO report writer report which is already in use. Now it will be used by another branch but I want to filter out some of the information that is currently being displayed. When the report is ran by someone from my branch it processes all the cost element groups (KSTAR) and all the cost center groups (KOSET). However,when a user from the new branch runs the report I'd like to restrict some cost element and cost center groups from being displayed. I've tried assigning an authorization group to the set variables but it only prevents the user from creating or modifying sets, not from choosing specific values for the set variables. Is there a way to restrict the values the user can select depending on their authorizations? Thanks in advance, David.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

Maybe you can create a new authorization object and assign it to certain users. Then, in your code, you can check whether the user is assigned to this authorization object or not.

    You may define authorizations as ever you like. But as azzuni has already stated, the programs must check authorizations explicitly. If your program executes authority-check commands, you may look for their objects - maybe there is alread one which is designed for observing the selection values.
