  2. Open business role GL_ACCOUNTANT.
  3. Apply the cost center restriction on the GL_ACCOUNTANT  role.

The App Post General Journal Entries is applied business catalog SAP_FIN_BC_GL_JE_PROC_PC. Cost center restriction do not apply in the business catalog SAP_FIN_BC_GL_JE_PROC_PC.


This is the standard behavior of system. The business catalog defines which access categories are available for maintaining and for which fields restriction values can be maintained. The business role aggregates these restrictions.
