Parameter ID KS7 & KS8 in SU01

Dear Experts,

My Question is similar to the following Forums -

I had tried to maintain the following Parameter ID KS7 (From posting date) & KS8 (To posting date) with values (01.03.2015 - 31.03.2015) for our user under "Parameters" tab of SU01 as below -

However, the above user still could access data in the reports (e.g. FBL1N) for the posting date out of the above range setup in SU01 -

Could you advise whether it is possible to limit data access for a user in reports and/or documents with specified posting date range setup as above ? If so, how to setup to proceed it ?

Many Thanks,

KH Fong

    Parameters are used as entry aid. They are user specific defaults. They do not restrict users from entering a different date in this case.

    Which would as well not make much sense, as users could maintain KS7 and KS8 dates their self in SU3. It would only be a step more to get to the data in the report if the entry in the screen of the report would be restricted (e.g. with a selection variant which does not have the fields visible)

    Dear Jurgen,

    Thanks for your advice. Could you also advise whether it is possible to restrict users to view data in reports and documents according to the "Posting date range" setup for authorization in SU01 or PFCG or elsewhere ?

    Tks,

    KH Fong

    • Dear Jurgen / Experts,

      Does it mean that no solution could be advised to restrict users to view data in reports and documents according to the "Posting date range" setup for authorization ?

      Many Thanks,
