Block all postings
My client has a requirement where they wants to prevent everyone except certain key personnel from posting anything in the system for 2 days each month.
Could anyone tell me how this can be done?
You can use the authorisation group in the OB52 screen. This object needs to be configured for the respective users. They will be the only people able to access the periods mentioned in the OB52 screen. However others will not be able to post to the closed periods (per.2 in the screen).
Please read the help on this field :
The authorization group allows extended authorization protection for particular objects. The authorization groups are freely definable. The authorization groups usually occur in authorization objects together with an activity.
A posting period can be made available to only a limited set of users using the authorization group.
If only a limited set of users is to be able to post in a particular posting period, proceed as follows:
Add the posting period authorization (authorization object F_BKPF_BUP) to the authorizations of the selected users. Assign an authorization group (e.g. '0001').
Enter the account type '' for the posting period variant to which the restriction is to apply. Enter the period(s) whose use is to be restricted in the first period, those which are available to all users in the second period, and the authorization group (e.g. '0001') in the last column.+
A posting period can be successively restricted. If, e.g. 10 users have the posting period authorization with authorization group '0001', and 3 of these 10 users also with authorization group '0002'.
If the period is only to be accessible to the 10 selected users the authorization group '0001' is entered in the posting period variant. Access can later be restricted to the remaining 3 users by entering '0002'.
Hope it was of help.
