Enable/Disable Characteristics value assignment during Configuration in SD



I have a sales order which has to be configured using Variant Configuration.

During the configuration process, I want to restrict the value assignment by classes. Meaning I have 2 classes - one for GRP1 and another for GRP2.

During creation of sales order, I give the sales ppl authorization to class for GRP1, which allows them to do characteristics value assignment for all the characteristics in the class called GRP1. The other users are not allowed to change any values assigned in GRP1 but they can view the info in GRP1, these users can only configure whatever characteristics in GRP2.

I tried using authorization object C_TCLS_MNT.

Mentioned in the SU21,

C_TCLS_MNT Authorization for Characteristics of Org. Area object can be used.

Actvt : 23 Maintenance of characteristics for org. area allowed , any other value Display area only characteristics for org.

However, I am unable to assign any other value other than 23. It mentioned that any other value is Display but I am unable to assign the other value.

It seems to be that C_TCLS_MNT is not working. Even when I do not assign C_TCLS_MNT (disable it) but using C_TCLS_BER (with org area), it allows user to do everything (display and change).

Pls help.
