Using cost center as owner dimension for work status (BPC 10.1 embedded)

Hi Gurus,

I need to know how can I setup 'manager' for work status if I use '

/ERP/COSTCNTR' as owner dimension in work status configuration.

Below is my work status configuration:

Work Status List:

0 - Unlocked (Controlled by: Owner and Manager; Manual Entry: All)

0 - In Process (Controlled by: Owner; Manual Entry: Owner)

0 - Submitted (Controlled by: Owner ; Manual Entry: None)

0 - Approved (Controlled by: Manager; Manual Entry: None)


Owner Dimension: /ERP/COSTCNTR

Owner Property: /ERP/RESPUSER - User Responsible




For cost center 10000, I have assigned my self as user responsible (used as owner property in work status configuration) in master data in on ecc side. I am able to change the work status with no issues but I am also able to approve the plan data in work status which only Manager should be able to do it.

Now I am not sure where do I assign the Manager in cost center hierarchy. On the ECC side there is no attribute of user responsible on hierarchy node of cost center.

    I think that for this case you would need to implement BADI RSBPCB_SETUSER. Reading the Owner from

    /ERP/RESPPERS and the manager from a second attribute (e.g. ZMANAGER). You'll need to enhance the hana view

    FCO_C_COST_CENTER to read the manager from somewhere (e.g. table) and assign the HANA view field to /ERP/COSTCNTR.
