In our company there are many posting period variants. We want to restrict the access for opening and closing posting periods in OB52 by Posting period variant. i.e. User can open/close for a specific posting period variant and not all.
On searching on this forum, i found some solutions saying that one can create Screen variants according to Posting period Variant but i am not very clear on it.
It would be very helpful, if someone can provide detailed solution for this scenario; or share one's experience on this.
Thanks and regards,
Inside OB52, the last column on the right is titled AuGr. Expanded, that stands for Authorization Group. Hit <F1> after keeping the cursor in that field and read what SAP has to say about that field.
That is the answer to what you need - a posting period can be made available to only a limited set of users using the Authorization Group. You'll need to enlist the help of your resident BASIS team members for putting this into use.
Remember to assign points if found useful.
Many thanks for your answer. but this is not the solution to my problem.
The Auth. Grp in OB52 is used for providing access to specific user to post in some periods.
However my requirement is to Restrict the process of opening and closing period according to posting period variant.
