The Restrictions Infotype (1006)

Definition

The Restriction infotype allows you to identify any restrictions applicable to employees who are assigned to a work center.

Use

It is used when you only work with work centers. If a work center:

Restrictions are categorized. The different categories of restrictions, and the reasons why the restrictions exist, are user-defined. As a result, restrictions vary from company to company. You can set up restriction categories and reasons in tables T778C and T778X, respectively.

It is not mandatory to maintain this infotype, however it can be helpful if such restrictions exist in a work environment, and you want to record them.

There are reports available that identify the restrictions applied to work centers. The report RHXIAW01 (Single Work Centers with Restrictions) shows the restrictions applied to selected work centers. The report RHXIAW00 (Work Center with Restrictions in Organizational Structure) also lists the restrictions applied to selected work centers, selected according to organizational structure.

For the RHXIAW00 report to work, you must create relationships between work centers and organizational units, using the Relationship infotype (1001).
