2650386 - Supplier Access Restrictions by Company is Not Working


You set the access restrictions for the Supplier base work center for a specific company,  the user is able to see all suppliers.


Also while creating new Supplier invoice , the user is able to see all suppliers


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

Restricting access:

  1. Go to Application and User Management work center.
  2. Open Business Users view.
  3. Select the user and click Edit -> Access Rights.
  4. Go to Access Restrictions tab.
  5. Select Work Center View ID 'BPM_SUPPLIERS'.
  6. Set Read / Write Access as Restricted and choose Access Group ID under Detailed Restrictions.
  7. Save it.

User accessing Suppliers:

  1. Go to Supplier Base work center.
  2. Open Suppliers view.
  3. User is able to see all suppliers with no restrictions.
  4. Open any supplier.
  5. Go to Financials tab.
  6. Payment Data is showing only for the company that the access was granted.
  7. If user has write access and click on View All, they are only able to add payment data for the company they have write access.


There is no direct link between the supplier and the company .

Current you see company in supplier master data is under financial data tab only, thus payment data only has the restriction.

  1. Go to Payables work center
  2. Go to Supplier Accounts View

also for the same reason in supplier invoice or Purchase order you cannot restrict the suppliers.
