Authorization in Demand Planning

Hello Friends,

In Demand Planning authorization check can be executed on product and location levels.

I need to execute it at various other levels as well. There is BAdi /SAPAPO/SDP_SELECTOR available in APO 4.0 which I feel can be used for this purpose. Did anyone work on this BAdi and can help how to use it?

Thanks and Best Regards, Manoj

    Hi...i've used the SDP_SELECTOR badi but not for the purpose you have mentioned...it mainly deals with all the modifications to the shuffler selection criteria...i'm not sure if authorisation checks can be done...if you can do it in this badi do let us know abt it.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Rajiv,

      In IT_SELECTION table check for OBJNUM or something which give characteristics name.

      There should be programming in such a way that planner needs to select the characteristics as per your design. Meaning if you want category, brand etc. to be selected compulsorily then check above table and see if these characteristics are there. In case it si not there then throw a error message.

      Thanks and Best Regards, Manoj

    there is a way to restrict using the BI Authorisation concepts (not sure if this is available in 4.0 - i know it is in 5).

    In the admin workbench, go to the characteristic you would like to restrict, select change mode and go to the Business Explorer tab. Check the Authorization Relevant box. Save and activate.

    Go to transaction RSECADMIN - Manage Analysis Authorizations.

    The instructions of what to do are then available here http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm50/helpdata/en/0c/515bb287fe41829556fb4227820e52/content.htm

    I know the theory of how this works, but I'm not sure how the new restriction you have just put in place is then checked at the required time (ie loading from the shuffler)
