KSB1 Restrict viewing of salary cost elements

In actual cost line item report KSB1, how can we limit usersu2019 access to certain cost elements such as Salaries? With control of authorization object, users currently can view the salary cost (element) items but cannot drill down on the underlying details. But we want to go further with the restrictions by excluding viewing of the cost elements?

I was trying to create a customized transaction code, e.g. ZKSB1, that will bypass the selection screen but without success.

Appreciate any insights or workaround for this.

    Hi,

    search SAPNET with "RESPAREA" = (responsible area) note 370082 is the one that explains the concept, 698401 is also helpful to trahsfer this settings to organizational structures in authorization maintenance. There are some notes dealing with authorization restriction based on defined "responsible areas" which are nothing else than groups of cost element (groups), cost center (groups), profit-center (groups),...

    No need to create a Z-report.

    Best regards, Christian

    Stacy,

    If you are using authorization objects you may be missing the right one, because it can be retricted using that method. I suggest to double check if the user doesn't have a reporting authorization object where field KSTAR is (*), then check the activity assigned to the AO, which for reporting display should not include neither activity 27 'Display total records' or 28 'Display line items', seems to me that activity 27 is still checked, and that's why you can see totals at the cost center, but can't drill dow to the details.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    Create cost element group (by excluding the cost element whatever u want to restrict) and hard code the same in the Zreport for the particular user and thus u can achieve.... the resultant...........

    In this process u add / delet the cost element in the cost element group as when required this will suffice the requirement.

    Thanks n Regards

    Thank you Gustavo. I spoke with our security team and confirm that we can restrict cost elements via authorization object control. Weu2019ll work from there. Also thank you Christian for the suggestion of notes for reference reading.
