Hey Mr. Siva,

You have to goto t-code pfcg and set the authorization there and give the perticular accountant information in the column below that.

reward with the points if you have checked this!

Hello friends,

I have created one Role and given the authorization object and assigned one authorization group to that object. Then i assigned this Role to a particular user. I have already given this authorization group in the GL Account authorization group field. Then as per the Role, only that user for whom this role was assigned only should be able to post the transaction using that GL Account. Right?

But still all the users are able to post the document using that particual GL Account !

is there any other checkings i have to do?

Kindly let me know

Hello Siva,

The authorization group allows extended authorization protection for particular objects. The authorization groups are freely definable. The authorization groups usually occur in authorization objects together with an activity.

Access to a master record may be restricted. One reason for this might be to protect master data from unauthorized changes.

Authorization can be assigned for the following editing functions:




All employees can display the G/L account master records, but only a limited number of people may create or change them.The authorizations for editing G/L account master records are set in your user master record.

To restrict access to a G/L account master record, enter a key in the Authorization field in the company code area of the master record.

Prerequisites: You have to define authorizations before you can limit access to a G/L account master record. You can find these settings in Financial Accounting Customizing under Financial Accounting Global Settings->Maintain Profiles .

Hope I had been able to help you. Please assign points.

In case you donot have idea of how to assign points, pls let me know.

Hi Siva,

The access protection account must ensure that only authorized individuals have access to the account and to particular data. If you are giving one user id here, he only open this account & postings...

For forther details better to contact your basis consultant.,

Pls reward some points.
