Authorizations on BP Addresses??

Hi Experts,

I have the following requirement: depending on the user an address can be only displayed, or modified and displayed. I have found out the authorization objects S_ADDRESS1, S_ADDRESS2, S_ADDRESS3. The key field for these authorization objects are the Activity and the Address group (you can see table TSAD7). I have seen that all the addresses that are created by BP transaction are saved within 'BP' address group. Thus, for achieving my requirement I have thought to create a new address group for each useful address usage and when the user move an address to a particular Address Usage I could (through a short development) change the address group for this address and assign the address group used for this address usage. Thus, only the users who has a profile with the correct data authorization: it means correct address group with activity '02' in the authorization objects, could modify this address.

My question is the following: is it possible? Is a good approach? or if I change the address group, these addresses won´t be visible from BP transaction?

In the event that be possible: how could I change the address group? I have found a function module to do that: ADDR_GROUP_CHANGE' but I don´t know from where should I call it. I means, I must do it when the user assign an address usage for an address, but I don´t know if an event is raised (from BUS7 transaction) or something like that.

I thank any suggestion. I would appreciate any recommendation.

Best Regards,

Hi Rosa,

Business address services is a basis service. Any application can use this by defining their group in the table TSAD7. So for business partners the group is 'BP'.

This group should not be changed for any purpose.

Here in this case to meet the requirement of depending on the user an address can be only displayed, or modified and displayed the authorization object 'B_BUPA_FDG' can be used. The address field groups can be used to meet this requirement. Check the documentation provided for the authorization object 'B_BUPA_FDG'. This should provide an idea. Let me know in case you need some detailed information to implement this.
