Exclusion Flag in PD Profiles (Structural Authorizations)


Hello, I have a question about the exclusion indicator in IT1017 (PD Profiles). We are upgrading from 4.6C to ECC 6.0. This indicator was not available in 4.6C. We are now concerned that users may inadvertently set this indicator and the recipientu2019s authorizations will get impacted.

The documentation only states that "This field allows you to exclude branch structures from structural authorizations."

We have found that if the flag is set (and RHPROFL0 runs), the impact to the user is that they can only see their own data. We have also found that, in order to remove the flag you must remove it from IT1017 and re-run RHPROFL0 with the "delete manually maintained authorization profiles" - PD Authorizations flag switched on.

Can anyone help explain, what the exclusion indicator is used for? And shed some light on itu2019s function?
