I am using SAP DM ST1700.
I would like to know the possibilities / solution to the problem described.
User SAP DM - User01 has global permissions the only one defined entity e.g. ABC.
[In the application are defined is more entities like DEF, GHI etc. Each of them has its own defined periods and reports. ]
Currently, the periods view User01 shows all periods defined in the application. Of course, he has access only to those periods to which the ABC entity is assigned.
Is it possible for User01 in the SAP DM application to see only the periods assigned to the entity ABC to which he has access?
No, not possible as far as I know - like you said, the security is checked at report level, not period
For most customers, this is not an issue, as the period names are very generic, e.g 2020.01 or 2021.Q1
