Access Restriction of some confidential DMS documents.


Hello Gurus,

I need your expert guidance on the following requirement.

The requirement is to restrict the access of the document to users like Author, Reviewer and Approver for the following business scenario:

Say there is a special document Type APR (Employee appraisal document)

And for 5 different employee created (Authors) the document giving their self-inputs.

Now these employee are assigned to say 3 different Supervisors (Reviewers) and one Manager (Approver)

{Author; Reviewer and Approver are maintained in Additional Data of the document.}

So each document will have a Reviewer and Approver assigned along with the Author.

Our requirement is to restrict the access of these 5 documents to the Employees (Authors), so that none of these employee can view each others document. And allow display/change to respective Supervisor (Reviewer) and Manager (Approver) only.

We need to restrict document access based on the above scenario

After checking, I think using authorization object the above requiremment can not be met. Can we use any user exit?

Thanks in advance!
