Categorization Schema and authorization

Hi All, I'm working on CRM 7.0 with Bunsiness transaction of type Service Request and Multilevel Categorization.

I need to know if it is possible to associate one Schema, linked to one Catalog, to one Service Request, and, by the authorization role, filter the value displayed into the 2 level of my Service Request Multilevel Categorization (first and second Subjects fileds, drop down list box).

Scenario: Helicopter Spare Parts with 5 different Line; 5 different employees responsible; one Catalog containing all the 5 Lines (and a set of Helicopter Model for each Line); by the authorization role I need to filter for each employee exactly one Helicopter Line, in other terms each employee should be allowed to display its own Line of competence.

Are any authorization objects available in order to meet this requirements?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

    • The Standard Solution does have this EHP1 crm but maintenance is a little cumbersome. . But to attempt and provide some direction, I shall provide some coding options which may be pursued.

      Standard Option - 1 .

      Use Authorization Object CRM_SSCCAT. It has a template for up to 4(Plus 1 for the first id) i think. Copy to have a ZAuthorization object and have up to moere levels if required and adjust the code in F4 drop down list box.

      Hint and Help in Standard

      The key points in code are

      LOOP at ct_ddlb_tables ASSIGNING <fs_ddlb_tables>

      lv_level= sy-tabix.

      LOOP at <fs_ddlb_tables> ASSIGNING <fs_ddlb_line> where key is not initial.

      clear lt_cat.

      lv_cat_guid- <fs_ddlb_line>-key.








      READ TABLE lt_Cat ASSIGNING <fs_cat> WITH KEY cat_guid= lv_cat_guid.

      IF sy-subrc IS NOT INITIAL.

      DELETE TABLE <fs_ddlb_tables> from <fs_ddlb_line>.



      * Check and Delete unauthorized values if user authorization object does not have access

      lv_subrc = cl_crm_ssc_authorization_util => category authority check (

      iv_selected_cat_level = lv_level

      iv_selected_category_id = <fs_Cat>-cat-cat_id

      iv_uname = iv_uname

      iv_mode= iv_mode).

      IF lv_subrc ne0.

      DELETE TABLE <fs_ddlb_tables> from <fs_ddlb_line>.


      The above code removes the entries which the user is not authorized to enter and does not show in F4 drop down search.


      Option -2 - Development and UI Enhancement .

      Step 1 - Copy to have a ZAuthorization object and have up to moere levels if required and adjust the code in F4 drop down list box.

      Step 2 - General Coding IDeas in One Order Service Objects ( IR, SR, SO, Complaint etc).

      Step 3 - Create different roles and make Configuration keys with field visible/editable etc
