BI-IP Authorizations: Accessing own Cost Center only


We are currently implementing BI-IP in our company. We have created the ready-input templates and we are prepared for roll-out.

There is still one concern though which I haven't resolved. I am currently looking for an AUTHORIZATION that will let users access their respective COST CENTERS only. For example, if I am part of the Marketing Group, then I will only be able to access the budget of my respective cost center.

Can anyone lead me to the right AUTHORIZATION OBJECT in BI-IP to implement this restriction.

Your reply is much appreciated. Thanks.




Hi Ramon,

authorizations for transaction data in BI (and therefore in BI-IP) are not based on authorization objects. You have to make the cost center InfoObject authorization relevant and then create so called Analysis Authorizations for it. Please see the online help:

BTW, you can upload the cost center authorizations from SAP R/3 or ERP.
