Is there a Role Authorization param to limit PO's to a certain amount?


Does anyone know if there is a Role Authorization parameter that can be set to limit the creation of a Purchase Order to a specific (in this case dollar) amount or range?

In PFCG, I was reviewing some Purchasing security roles and came across the

Materials Management: Purchasing

security role, but could not see any parameter within this role that referenced the "total PO amout" so we could limit it for certain buyers.

Does such a parameter exist within the Purchasing roles?

Any help would be much appreciated.

The above is not controlled by authorizations but by a business function called as "release procedure". This can be used for both PO as well as for PR. The release criteria can be anything like amount, quantity, cost center etc.(e.g. total value of the document with instance u2018Overall Value>10000 EURu2019). Once a purchasing document satisfies a release criteria it will get blocked from further processing.

It is then upto the managers etc who have relevant authorization via M_EINK_FRG to release the document for further processing or reject it.

As far parameters are concerned I do not think there should be any such parameter as it does not make any sense.
