Restrict change authorization for MM17 (Material master mass maintenance)

Hi,

Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong forum. I want to know if it is possible to use the mass maintenance transaction MM17 (indus. material) to display data only istead of change/create. Is there some setting at the basis object level which can enable this? There are currently a lot of custom abap reports and queries in our system for viewing material master data, these can all be replaced by MM17. Basically we want to use MM17 as a reporting tool to display data only. Is a solution possible? Help is appreciated, thanks.

Regards

    • Without running a trace on MM17, I can't say for sure, but it is likely that you can run much of it on display only auths. The problem comes if you assign it in parallel with the change auths (e.g. a user has another role with MM02 in it), which will give the users access to make mass updates for data within their permitted org units.

    Hi,

    Try this ....It may work

    Create a role XXX by assigning Tcode MM17 and give the Activity as 33(READ).

    Thanks

    Have you tried the MM Information System node in the SAP Easy Access menu? There are a bunch of standard reports with navigation options there, for the user who has the correct authorization to display only.

    Alternately, you may want to take a look into transaction MASS and use the B_MASSMAIN object, depending on your requirements - but test it well.

    Cheers,
