GRC 10.1 - Authorization restriction for customized transaction added as NWBC link

Hello All,

We have created a transaction added to the NWBC launchpad. We have got a requirement to restrict the link to a specific audience.

Is it possible to restrict the custom transaction link using authorization objects??

Regards,

Arun

    Hello All,

    I was able to achieve the requirement by performing the below steps.

    1. Creating a new Menu Item Authorization in SM34 - GRFNVC_ITEMAUTH cluster and along with it added the authorization object and value.

    2. In LPD_CUST, against the new custom transaction application we have added additional Information "MENUITEMID = xxxx" which is under the "Advanced Parameters"

    Regards,

    Hi Arun

    GRFNVC_ITEMAUTH(Standard), GRFNVC_ITEMAUTHC(Custom)

    Generally - standard is delivered content by SAP whilst the custom version is for customers to extend/tweak the values

    If you run ST05 trace with and customer values are maintained you'll see they may get checked before or after the standard setting

    You would maintain custom so SAP doesn't remove your entries if they ever deploy new content to the standard table. More than likely the IMG pathway launches the custom.

    • Hi Colleen,

      Thank you for your response,

      I tried maintaining the entry in GRFNVC_ITEMAUTHC(Custom), however I don't have an option to provide the authorization object and values to be checked in this cluster.

      Is there any other option to add the auth check for the custom menu item entries?

    Did you add the custom transaction to an existing Launchpad via LPD_CUST? How did you go about making it visible in Business Client?

    • Hi Collen,

      I have one more query regarding the same topic, when we have two clusters for adding the menu item ID - GRFNVC_ITEMAUTH(Standard), GRFNVC_ITEMAUTHC(Custom). If we add to the custom one we don't have an option to map the authorization object against the menu item but we do have the same in standard one.

      So is it recommended to maintain the menu item id in the standard itself?

      Regards,

    Yes this is possible, You would have to setup Work centers with the help of your Development team, and each work center can have multiple Links. Resctrictions can be setup on workcenters.

    • Hi Srinivas,

      Thank you for your reply.

      Apart from having restrictions at workcenter level, can we have the restriction at the custom transaction link alone ?

      This way we can include the link within existing workcenters?

    • Hi Jayakanth,

      Thank you for your reply.

      We already have multiple launchpad according to user criteria's. The current requirement is to specifically restrict the link to certain set of people so is it possible to have a restriction at the link level for the new custom entries. Is it possible?

      Regards,
