Block certain user from viewing some GL accounts

Hello experts

I have a requirement from Business of blocking one user from accessing to a few accounts. That is not possible using General Authorizations. Is there a way to achieve that requirement?

I have though on Additional authorizations and Transaction Notification, but Additional authorizations seems to be based on Forms ID witch make it useless to my purpose and I am not sure if TN can be used to prevent an user from viewing.

    For some accounts that can't be accessed and used by some users, you can tick the confidential field in COA for the accounts and in the authorizations window --> Access to Confidential Accounts, you must choose no authorization

    If this functionality can' solve your problem, you must use SDK code to hide the field and prevent user to use it.

    TN may only block the user adding or updating data. To prevent user from viewing just few accounts, you may only try SDK.
