The purpose of this page is to clarify the usage of ECTR folders regarding user authorization.
Since ECTR - folders are based on documents (DIR) the DIR authorizations are valid for folders as well. There exists several possibilities to solve authorization requirements:
Folder type / authority group
You can define multiple document types for folders or use different values for auth. group and have different roles with rights to these fields. If a user may view but not edit the folder, then he can't change the content.
Use the Access Control Management (ACM)
You can use the ACM for the folder documents to use ECTR - folders for specific teams.
Customer specific solution
There exists several BAdIs which you can use to implement a customer specific solution:
- BAdI: DOCUMENT_AUTH01~CHECK_AUTHORITY - controls the folder - document
BAdi: /DSCSAG/FOLDER_01~fol_alloc_maint_before - controls insert and delete functions to an ECTR folder document
- BAdI: BOM_UPDATE~CHANGE_AT_SAVE - low level control of adding and removing documents into ECTR - folders
