Make F4101 & F4102 read only

As far as I can determine, the only way to inquire on these two tables is via P4101 & P41026 maintenance applications. We have a need to restrict maintenance but allow viewing of information. Any suggestions on security settings? I thought maybe I could use row security on alias ITM, but row security is currently not allowed. Would there be any consequences of changing the data dictionary setting to allow row security for alias ITM?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi There
Row security is used when you want to allow users to change some data but not all.. For example: allow users to update item/branch records for one branch but not for another branch (in which case you would apply row security for DD item "MCU"

But from your description, i draw the conclusion that you want to make P4101 and P41026 "view only" regardless of data.
If you want to make P4101 and P41026 "view only" for ALL records, you should look at application "Action security" which can be set to allow viewing records but not for ADD/Update

Hope this helps

Yes, exactly.. You use action security to disable ADD/OK/DELETE but keep the possibility to press SELECT
