To restrict cost center & product category for particular user implement BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI such that user selection is valid for particular CC & Product Category. You can also compare values from organization structure of that particular user.

Hi Sanjay,

The user will be able to search all the cost centres irrespective of the values you maintain in the Org Structure. The search results are pulled from the back-end system. To restrict the search to only the values from the Org Structure, a security profile has to be changed. Please test by disabling the activity - BE_F4_HELP from the user role.

Hope this helps

Hi Sandy,

Do Not assign that cost center and product category  to that user attribute and extended attribute respectively. Also check the inheritance values....

Hi Sandy,

In the SRM Org structure, we will asign the list of cost center to Cost Center Attribute. And under extended attributes tab, we will assign the list of product categories to product category attribute. User will have access for only those product category and those cost center. This is how we can restrict the user in SRM.
