BPS layout access control - need flexibility

Hi,

Is there any way to control the access to layouts in the web at a given point in time ? We are using web layouts and we would like one of our users to be able to control if a layout is accessible or not (to all the other users, like by switching them from input to output in the web apllication designer) with a function pushbutton for instance.

Using BW/Portal security or BPS variables to control access is not flexible enough for us.

As anyone developed a flexible way to do that ?

Thanks

David

    Dear David,

    if you need it very flexible I would check out the capabilites of the Web Interface Extension (Examples on how to use them are described in current how to's like How to… Run Planning Sequences on Save and other events (WEB) or How to… Validate Key Figure Values in Manual Planning ).

    The idea: step in the method for load, get a handle to the layout you like to tread and set the properties e.g. to display only. As you are in ABAP you could derive the property value from one of you custom customizing table.

    Here is coding sample:

    lLayout2 ?= CL_UPWB=>GET_COMPONENT('Layout1').

    if myCustParam eq 'X'.

    lLayout2->SET_READ_ONLY('X').

    else.

    lLayout2->SET_READ_ONLY('-').

    endif.

    Regards, Olaf
