3200253 - Project data can be displayed for user who has restricted authorization


In Project Control app you can see projects of other profit centers which are not assigned to the role.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a custom role by copying the role SAP_BR_PROJ_FIN_CONTROLLER.
  2. Add restrictions to profit center to this role.
  3. Assign the custom business role to user A.
  4. Login with another user.
  5. Open Project Control app.
  6. Create a new project.
  7. Assign the project manager/steer co/Financial Controller as user A.
  8. Update the profit center to which user A does not have access.

User A will be able to view the projects based on the authorizations set in the role and also the projects where he/she has been assigned as a project manager.


In Project Control, the project manager, steer co and project controller role will see all the projects for which he/she is assigned as the roles irrespective of the role assigned.


  • This is a standard behavior.
  • This is the design of the system.
