Closing Period Access and Stock Transactions

Former Member

Hi Experts,

I have a user who does not have "Period Status: Closing Period" access (in General Authorisations) yet the user can still post Stock Transactions for Periods set to "Closing Period"

The Stock Transaction (ie Goods Issue) has an effect on the GL. Is this correct behavior?

Thanks

This definitely sounds like a bug, so should be reported to SAP

Hi Greig,

Please check the said period: what is its status for Active and Locked? It it is not locked, you may not need special authorizations to post to that account.

It is correct for Stock Transaction (ie Goods Receipt/Issue) to have effects on the GL.

Thanks,

Hi

It looks like clear violation of security setup .

If user doesn't have authorise to post in closing period ,then user shouldn't able to post any document in closing period .

May be some issue with user profile .

user who have authorisation to post in closing period can do all posting that affect general ledger .

Can you please test with new user profile and see if that issue persists.bishal

Also mention your SAP version and patch level to check if it is application error .

Thank you
