IBP 6.3 (1608): How to restrict access to specify Planning Area

Hi team,

We are working in the creation of roles after our last upgrade to IBP 6.3 or 1608.

We would like that some of our user have access to specific Planning Areas.

So we create a specific Role, then go to "Maintain General Restrictions", then in the Read area, select Restricted, and in all the rows with "Planning Area" select the PA that I want give access to that role. I have a quick question here:

  • Should we select in that field the Planning Area that I want to give access in that role?
  • Or I should select the rest of the Planning Areas that I don't want to give access in that role.

Then we should follow the same behaviour for the Write area.

We have tested both options, but when I select "Restricted" option and chose one of these option the user cannot access to any Planning Area. We are not sure if this is due we need additional configuration or it is an error and we need to create an OSS note.

Could you help with that?

Thanks in advance.

    Hello David,

    It should work as per your first point. Have you assigned unrestricted access for key figures and MDT along with planning area in read and write section?

    For more information on restriction you may go through below SAP help link-

    • maybe a little misunderstanding:

      If you provide a role that RESTRICTS, you need to put in a couple of objects, not only the PA

      What I suggest is to have that role fully done and restrcited to all other restrcitions you like, but put in the authprization object for the Planning area unrestricted in the FIRST step. If that works, open OSS. But if that already leads to some error, you likely forgot some other object, such as authorization for excel at all

      If you open OSS, please let us know about the solution in the end so others can learn from it as well, please. Thanks
