2852379 - Restriction on Profit Center doesn't work for Cost Center reports

Symptom

You use App Cost Centers - Actuals to display data, and you want to make restriction on Profit Center with the Business Role. However, the restriction doesn't work.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Restrict access with Profit Center on the Business Role for the user.
  2. Use the user to access App Cost Centers - Actuals to check data with restricted Profit Center.

Cause

Authorization checks for Profit Center are currently only available if the Business Catalog Role uses the authorization context SALES.
The App Cost Centers - Actuals uses the context OVHDCOST. The context is set in the App directly and can't be changed by the usiness Catalog Role. So authorization checks for Profit Center is currently not supported.

Resolution

Enabling Profit Center authorization checks for other contexts would be a feature request.
Refer to KBA 2807810 New Feature Request in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
