Work Order (IW31/IW32) approval Restriction on Functional Location

Hi,

We have a business requirement in Plant Maintenance where they require to restrict users on work order approval,

A user should be restricted from approving a work order against Functional location.

Do we have any standard SAP object with Functional Location field in it, so that i can utilize it in the above senario

Or is there any other way to acheive this.

Thanks.

    Hi,

    if you can't find any suitable object which you can use to restrict users then there are some user exits. For example enhancement IWO10002 is for implementing additional checks before releasing PM order. I am not sure if releasing is equal to approving.

    Cheers

    Hi Chetan

    Did you tried to run a trace to check whether value for Funtional Location is being checked while approving a work order.

    Thanks.

      Hi Mylène Dorias,

      The Object I_BEGRP helps in restricting Functional Location,

      Initially i could not find the field Auth Obj. in the Tcode IL01/IL02, but after looking into several options i found that it was made invisible/suppressed in configuration.

      Now i have to sit with the Mater Data team and define Authorization Objects for all the Functional Locations and then define it in the Security roles in I_BEGRP. This will solve my requirement.

      Thanks,

      Chetan.

    I_INGRP could be your object of choice.

    Prerequisite: all functional locations are grouped on tabstrip 'Organization' in transaction IL02.

    I_BEGRP could also help, possibly in combination with I_INGRP.

    Whatever you attempt here, it requires that you structure your (master)-data accordingly.
