Self Service Good Receipt can display same amount of docs as Central GR

Hi experts,

We've upgraded to SRM 7.0 and we're facing an issue related to the central GR transaction. Some purchasers in SRM 5.0 had the Self-service Good Receipt transaction (to perform the GR of their requests) as well as the Central Good Receipt transaction (BBPCF03). We've tried to replicate this role design in SRM 7.0 and the problem is that users that have both accesses (self-service GR + Central GR) have on both transactions, access to confirm all purchase orders.

To perform the GR, self-service users use the POWL and tab Confirmations. As commented, if the user has not only access to the POWL but also the Central GR transaction, the user then has access to all the purchase orders in POWL, not only his own ones.

We've detected the following:

- Authorization object BBP_ROLE has REC as only value --> both, central GR transaction and POWL display all POs.

- Authorization object BBP_ROLE has REC + OPP --> both, central GR transaction and POWL display only the own user's POs.

As commented, this is not the desired output. The system should display his own POs if using POWL and all if using the central GR.

Can you help us please?

Thanks a million.

    Hi Richard,

    If the user is seeing all purchase-orders when "central recipient" role is NOT assigned, please check if the user is having employee role or central roles like purchaser roles. This is because if user is having central like operational purchaser then user can see all purchase-orders created in that org.

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Govardhan and all,

      Govardhan is right. We've raised a SAP call for this and SAP confirmed that now the standard behaviour changed and that if you have 2 roles added to a user, the authorization object picked is the one with higher value. So, now, you cannot mix both roles into a user (which is disappointing šŸ˜ ).

      Many thanks for your support.

    If the users want to make GR for other SC not created by himĀ Ā  -you can use central confirmation role as pointed out by you.

    If theĀ  SC creator wants to create GRĀ  for the SC created by him the role is also mentioned by you . you have to useĀ  that role

    if you are assinging central confirmation role you can do GR for all the SC created by the users in the same org. This is the standard SRM design.

    you can do one thing raise a SAP oss message and check.
