    Hi Shirish,

    You could assign each customer to a group and store in customized table relations between a group name and limitations on CVCs. At the same time in shuffler ( via user's exit ) you can check it and load only allowed values. Would it help you ?

      Hello Ada,

      Thanks for quick response.

      The authorization Object 'C_APO_PROD' is for APO Product restriction.In my case we need to restrict at customer level.

      When Customer 1 creates the selection ID he should able to select the products pertaining to him.

      We have 60 Customers, for which we have to create 60 Authorization roles?

      Please guide me .

      Regards,

      Shirish
