Restrict Maintenance of Cost Element Groups in KAH2

Hello All,

I have a question concerning authorizations related to the maintenance of cost element groups (tcd KAH2).

Is it technically possible to restrict the maintenance of cost element groups on a specifc cost element group and not on the chart of account as proposed by the K_CSKA_SET authorization object.

Indeed the K_CSKA_SET authorization object is one of the object checked and maintained by transaction KAH2.

It contains the 2 following fields :

ACTVT : activity

KTOPL : Chart of Accounts

However I would like to restrict the maintenance of a specific cost element group and not the chart of account in which it belongs to.

For example:

I have one chart of account : COA and 2 cost elements groups CEG-1 and CEG-2 linked to COA.

I would like to restrict the maintenance access on CEG-1 but not on CEG-2.

It means that some users will be able to maintain CEG-2 but not CEG-1 in the same chart of account.

Is it something feasable with the authorizations?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Vince

    I ran some traces and KTOPL is the cost element group.

    > I would like to restrict the maintenance access on CEG-1 but not on CEG-2.

    Try this Vince.

    ACTVT : 03, 02

    KTOPL : CEG-2

    ACTVT : 03

    KTOPL : CEG-1

      Hi John,

      No, the field KTOPL is used for chart of accounts that you can also find in table T004.

      The cost element groups are something different and belong to a specific chart of account.

      I don't think there is any existing authorization object with a field that could restrict on a cost element group.

      I don't know what could be the alternative solutions to restrict the maintenance on a cost element group which is in the same chart of account as the other ones.

      Thank you for your help anyway.

      Regards,

      Vince
