Symptom

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

Environment

  • 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.

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.
