Delimiting Object Assignments


You can delimit object assignments to change the validity period applied to the relationship between an Organizational Management object and an SAP Organizational Object, so that the end date occurs sooner than stated.

This can be necessary, for example, if you plan to redirect responsibility for a task at a specific time in the future.


  1. Start the Assignment of SAP Organizational Objects transaction. (See Starting the SAP Organizational Object Assignment Transaction.)
  2. The Assignment of SAP Organizational Objects screen appears.

  3. Select the Organizational Management objects, and the type of SAP Organizational Objects, you want to edit. (See Selecting Objects.)
  4. Choose Assignment ® Change.
  5. Another screen appears, displaying the Organizational Management objects you selected.

    The tree structure can display additional information, including existing assignments with SAP Organizational Objects, and other Organizational Management objects in the organizational plan. Use the View options to adjust the type of information given.

  6. Select the assignment that should be delimited by:
  1. Choose Assignment ® Delimit.
  2. A screen appears, displaying the assignment information.

  3. In the second Validity field, enter the appropriate end date for the validity period.
  4. Choose SAP OrgObjects ® Delimit.

A message appears confirming the system has delimited the assignment.
