2982860 - Creation of Objects Possible For Accounts, Even Without Having Write-Access for the Account


It is possible for users to create opportunities for accounts - even if they do not have write-access for this particular account.


SAP Cloud for Customer


As long as the user has read-access for the account, the user can create objects, for example an opportunity, for this account.

We refer to this as a "forward scenario". The opportunity will then not be accessible for the user anymore once it is edited by another user, if restriction rules are applicable.

So in general this implies that you can also create objects for sales areas you are not responsible for.


It is the expected current system behaviour that a user can create objects for sales areas they are not responsible for, if they have access to accounts from there.
