Planning Operator ID Error in IBP

We are facing issues in restricting access to Copy Operators and Copy and Disagg Operator" to a particular role. The ID's of custom made operator are same. Refer screenshot for sample. Is this the correct functionality since my assumption is the ID's should be unique to each operator?

Because of this duplication, while trying to restrict access to operators, we are not able to select either the Copy or the Copy and Disagg Operator for one role since all the operators with same ID get selected. Refer image.

Is there a work around for this ?

    Hi Pallavi,

    In that case you have to add a new Restriction Area 'Planning Operators' and configure them accordingly. For example, if I want Business Users to have access only to Disagg operator 10002 and Copy operator 10003, and not also Disagg operator 10003 and Copy operator 10002, I just add a new Restriction Area 'Planning Operators' and configure them separately - see screenshot planning-operator-restriction-area.png .

    Now, when Business Users access Excel, they will be able to use only Disagg operator 10002 and Copy operator 10003.

    Best regards,

    Hi Pallavi

    There is nothing wrong with the functionality. What you have to do is if you are trying to restrict Copy and Disagg operator, restrict it using Planning operator ID along with Planning operator type in the maintain restriction section. Doing so you can differentiate between different operators.

    If you are looking for anything specific, provide more details on your requirement.

    • Hi Ivan, Ankur -

      What Pallavi is trying is to model the below scenario:

      10002 Copy Copy Operator - 1

      10002 Disaagg Disagg Operator - 1

      10003 Copy Copy Operator - 2

      10003 Disagg Disagg Operator - 2

      For a particular user we would like to give access to "Copy Operator - 1" and "Disagg Operator - 2". If we go by your suggestion and maintain planning operator type = Copy and Disagg and give ID = 10002 and 10003, that would open up all four operators.

      Would you have a suggestion to handle the case outlined above?

      Thanks,

    Hi Pallavi/Srikant

    Ok, now the requirement is clear I don't think there is a way to have this with the same operator. What I would suggest is to create a different role and assign it separately.
