2686314 - Restricted Write Access for Territories Does Not Work


You have restricted write access to territories using “99 - Define Specific Restrictions” and cannot create new sub territories.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales work center.
  2. Go to the Territories view.
  3. Click on New > New Sub Territory.
  4. Enter the mandatory information.
  5. The RBAM authorization message appears and the save fails.


Restriction Rule “99 - Define Specific Restrictions” does not work to create territories and sub territories with write access restriction. The user is only allowed to edit the territories he is assigned.


This is the expected system behavior.

If you need the functionality to restrict territories access you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.

An alternative option may be to check the SAP Cloud for Customer Ideas Forum to submit an idea:

Feasible workaround in case you want to create new territories during the usual course of business, you could have a user with unlimited territory authority to create new territories.
After creating a new territory or sub territory the user with unlimited territory would need to go into the business role and grant the appropriate authorization for the new territory or sub territory for the user which should have access to this role. After updating the role, the user would have access to the territory.
