Goal

Security for Supplier Qualifications is controlled by "MANAGE_QUALIFICATION" Procurement Agent Access Controls, but there is a requirement to override the APM policy controlling this with custom logic.

However it does not appear in APM. Is the Procurement Agent Security for the Supplier Qualification access hard coded into the Manage Supplier/Supplier Qualifications tab?
 


Expectation of the Fusion Design pattern is that security, both functional and data, should exist outside the forms so the same rules can be used irrelevant of source.

The requirement is to be able to show Supplier Qualifications cross-BU.s.

Create the qualifications in one (central) Procurement BU; but users creating negotiations and agreements for the suppliers in other BUs need access to the data.

Possible workaround is creating Procurement Agent definitions in the central Procurement BU with only qualification view access.
However that would mean 4000 extra Procurement Agent definitions to maintain.

In a central Procurement BU that should consist of some 40 central Category Managers and some Supplier Management people.
Tried changing the condition on the FUN_ALL_BUSINESS_UNIT_V (not sure on the exact name) view for the Duty Roles handling view access for qualifications and assessments.
But that did not work. Which suggests that it had to be coded outside APM.

The idea is to change the seeded condition to look at the relationship between providing and client BUs, and show assessments and qualifications for users having access to client BUs that were created in their providing BU.
