Global Variants- can you restrict them?

I know that in finance you can control who has access to global variants by an authorization object. However, with the rest of the modules (mainly PM, MM) how do you restrict the global variants so they can not be edited?

    Perhaps you have mistaken "variants" for "layouts" and hence "parameter IDs"??

      My user was requesting the restriction of Variants, but it was actually Layout that needed to be restricted. Although the authorization check did not pull in any authorizations, by restricting the authorization obejct s_layo_alv, it will prevent users by changing the global variant (layouts).
