Unable to restrict Material Usage through authorization


The business requirement is to restrict usage of a particular Material Type through authorizations so that it can be restricted for any kind of usage (For example, creating/displaying PO, WO, PR, Master Data Access, and for anything and everything).

At present, we are maintaining an authorization group at Material Type configuration as 'ZXXX' and assigning the same to the authorization object M_MATE_MAT during the role assignment for the allowed users and a different auth group for the restricted users. But, this authorization only gets validated for Master Data (MM01/MM02/MM03) transactions and does not work for other business processes when the Materials of that Material Type is used to create/display/change Purchase Order/Purchase Requisition/PM Work Order etc.

Please help!!
