Restrict notification type creation


I have multiple notification types, currently all are craeted manually.

For a new solution, we required that notifications should be triggered via a maintenance plan, which we achieved by creating a maint plan using maint plan category as "Inspection(notif.only)" in IW41. This maint plans will have a new notification type maintained.

The new notification type "T4" was created, which will be only used for these plans.

We now want that users when using IW21 for creating other notifications should not be able to create a notification type T4.

Other than changing the objects, notification types etc in the roles, how can this be achieved?

    You could implement a check in user exit QQMA0002. Set the exception if transaction code is IW21 and notification type = T4. Users will still be able to amend these notifications in IW22 (unless you prevent that also) and display via IW23.


    Edit: use QQMA0026. for maintenance/service notifications

    Check with SAP-BASIS on the use of Authorization Object 'I_QMEL' in Transactions ...

    I think this would provide a better approach than using ABAP (BAdI when creating a Notification) ... Additionally : in recent EhP there is a possibility to activate a EhSwitch that allows a user to change the Notification Type within a Notification ... This could be an important side Note when implementing this requirement ....
