Alternative Labeling system for FLs

Hi Experts,

I have

a) Activated Alternative Labeling.

b) Defined Labeling Systems for Functional Locations.

c) Created User profile for labeling FLs.

AS in the picture user has access to all the labeling systems which are available.

Now my requirement is-

1) A particular User/Role should have access only to a particular "Labeling System". How to do that configuration?

Or Is it standard, every time user has to select his required Labeling system when ever he runs the transaction?

2) Maintaining the alternative name for the FLs, Should we do it manually for each FL in the structure. Is there any option to change easily?

Thank you

    Hello Renjith,

    For point no1 You can control this using user-exit ILOM0001. Here few lines like given below restricts users from creating F/Locations of other Labeling system.

    IF sy-uname = 'ABCD_XYZ' and data_iflos-alkey <> 'D' .

    message: 'You are not authorized to create F/Locn in this labeling system.' type 'E' display like 'I'.


    This throws error pop-up if the user (ABCD_XYZ) authorized for D labeling system tries to create a Functional Location in other Labeling systems. Please note that this is the restriction at the time of SAVE event.  If this solution suits to you, you may need to create a Z table for userID vs labeling system to be used in the code above.

    For your second question, to my knowledge: yes we rename f/locns manually and individually. So far never came such mass requirement.

    Hope a part of this info helps you.

    • Hi Renjith,

      This is because, when you create the functional location it was set with default Standard Indicator and now you changed to Plant Maintenance.

      If you create new functional location now, that will display the default has Plant Maintenance.

    In IL02, got to the Extras->Alternative Labels->User Profile menu path.
