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.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

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 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 will see all the projects for which he/she is assigned as the project manager irrespective of the role assigned.


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