Create Buy on Behalf shopping carts with catalog items

Hi SRM Gurus,

I need some inputs on shopping cart buy on behalf scenario where items are added using catalogs. We have 3 users who will be procuring licenses for an entire department using buy on behalf scenario. The shopping carts will be created using internal catalogs. In order for the 3 users to do buy on behalf the named searches has to be maintained in the CATALOG ID attribute of the users of the department for whom the material will be purchased. However we need to have a restriction that the users for whom the procurement is done should not be able to create SCs themselves using these catalogs. Now if these department users go to the Shop option using theer ID they will see the catalog links and can also create carts. If we remove the catalog ID attribute than the 3 users who are supposed to do the BOB do not see the catalogs as well.

Is there any quick solution to overcome this challenge without any modification using the BBP_SC_MODIFY_UI BADI to hide the links. Awaiting your expert advice.

Thanks,

Pawan

    Hello Pawan,

    There is no solution to cover your requirement without ABAP coding.

    You can create a specific attribut (a flag one). If any user has this flag set, this means he does not have authorization to use catalogs, so, with BBP_SC_MODIFY_UI BAdI you can unset corresponding field to not display catalog item choice.

    Regards.

    Laurent.
