Editing Unauthorized location products in Demand Planning



We have restricted access to planning data wherein a user belong to a particular location cannot edit data for a product belonging to some other location. This functionality works well in SNP, where if we select a product for a location that is not authorized for the user, we cannot move from display mode to edit in Interactive Planning. The icon does not change from pencil icon to the spectacle icon in interactive planning.

In DP however, when i load data for a characteristic restricted to a location for which the user has no authorization, and try to switch to edit mode from display mode, the planning book changes to edit mode ( icon changes from pencil to spectacle) and we are able to edit data. However due to authorizations, we cannot save the data though we can edit.


From above, can we make DP equivalent to SNP - Is it possible to disallow edit mode while loading data for a characteristic for an authorized location ( this DP location characteristic is 9ALOCNO). The intended result is the pencil icon during display mode does not change at all to the spectacle icon in edit mode.

Thanks for all your guidance.
