Find first user in BBP hierarchy with a special attribute

Hello experts,

we are using SRM 7.0 and I have a BRF request where I have currently no idea how to solve it technically.

For our signature rule in SC we have to determine the cost center owner. Therfore I have already created an own expression and use it in BRF process configuration.

But when a value limit is more than x, than we need additional the approve of a user with a special attribute. Therefore I will will use a new expression, but the method to determine the WI-receiver is not clear for me.

There are more then 30 users which are possible receivers and I don't want to bother all at the same time. So the WI should only send to the firstt user which is in the BBP hierarchy above the cost center owner, having a special attribute (e.g. the user must have the attribute "ROLE = Z_MYROLE").

I know that I can read the attributes with FM BBP_READ_ATTRIBUTES, but I didn't know how to combine it with the lookup in the BBP hierarchy starting on the level of the cost center owner. Is there a FM which read the "usage" of a user/central person?

Any ideas?

BTW: The value x can be changed depending on the material group and other rules, so usage of general attributes like spending limit, etc. is not possible.

Thanks in advance,
