SAP provides dual control functionality to control and securely manage changes made to sensitive fields in Vendor and Customer master data records.
Once this functionality is activated changes made by one user role, needs to be confirmed/authorized by another user role for the change to take effect. Till then the changes remain visible but the account will be blocked for transactions such as payment runs etc. This facilitates tight control over unauthorized modifications to vendor and customer master fields.In this document we will discuss the configuration that needs to be in place for activating dual control for vendor master fields, keeping in mind that similar functionality is available for customer master as well.
Please feel free to post your suggestions, feedback and comments!
