Forecast Model Assignment related Catalogs

Does anyone know which catalog drives the "Assignment of Forecast Models" and "Manage Profiles" sections under "Maintain General Restrictions" in a business role?

    Found the solution to this problem-

    We had missed out on selecting the "Assign Forecast Models" section in that role.

    Thanks

    Hi Pallavi,


    The business catalog

    SAP_IBP_BC_FORECASTMODEL_PC allows user to perform create/edit/assign forecast models.

    The Manage Profiles section controls the access to below profile types:

    Manage SOP Operator Profiles: SAP_IBP_BC_SOPOPERATOR_PC

    Profile for Forecast Error Calculations: SAP_IBC_BC_KPIPROFILE_PC

    ABC - XYZ Segments: SAP_BCR_IBP_ABCXYZ_SEGMENT_PC

    Please also review the Help Portal for all the business catalogs in IBP.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Gabby Guo,

      Thank you for your response.

      We have added all the above mentioned Catalogs to the role. Still we are unable to get the "Assign Forecast Models" section under "Maintain General Restrictions" section. This role under discussion has Restricted access for both "Read" and "Write"

      We also have another role with above 4 catalogs, but with "Unrestricted" Read Access. In this role, we are able to get the "Assigned Forecast Models" and "Manage Profiles" sections.

      To summarize the scenario that i described above-

      ROLE1 has 32 catalogs (includes 4 catalogs mentioned above)- READ is RESTRICTED and WRITE is RESTRICTED--> No section for "Assign Forecast Models" and "Manage Profiles"

      ROLE2 has 32 catalogs (includes 4 catalogs mentioned above)- READ is UNRESTRICTED and WRITE is RESTRICTED--> Section for "Assign forecast models" and "Manage Profiles" visible

      My understanding till now was that Catalogs govern the sections that we see after clicking on "Maintain General Restrictions" Let me know if that is wrong. If not, then what can be a possible explanation for the "Assign Forecast Models" and "Manage Profiles" section being visible in one of the roles and not the other, even though both have the same catalogs.
