User status profiles for work orders and sub-orders

Hi Experts,

I have the following question regarding status profiles for SAP PM work orders (but I guess it relates to all user status profiles).

Customizing

A status profile is defined for order type "PM_A", which contains an authorization key "OP" for certain user states (to be set by the ordering party)

Situation

The ordering party A creates an order of type PM_A for contractor B, and B then creates a sub-order of type PM_A for contractor C

Problem

- If I assign the authorization key "OP" only to roles of party A, then party B can't set the user states reserved for the ordering party (correct for the order A->B, but not for the sub-order B->C)

- If I assign the authorization key "OP" to roles of party A and party B, then B could set certain user states reserved for the ordering party in the order A->B, which is also wrong

Question

Is there a way to restrict sub-orders differently than "non-sub-orders", or do I have to create a "sub-order order-type" for each order type, in order to assign them different status profiles and authorization keys?

Thanks a lot!

    hi

    since you have 3 roles to be assigned to the same order type with different authorization ,it is better you create an seperate order type for sub order and assign the user status with authorization for B and C
