2607103 - How To: Territory Access to Sub-Territories of the User's Territory Without Assigning the User to the Sub-Territories


You have assigned your user to a Territory ABC but not to the Sub-Territories DEF and XYZ (ABC stands for a Territory; DEF and XYZ stand for sub-territories of the territory ABC). Your user's Access Restriction is set for Territories and is valid.

When creating Opportunities, you can only select Accounts with Territory ABC; but you do not have access to Accounts with the sub-territory DEF and XYZ.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Opportunities view.
  3. Click New to create a new Opportunity.
  4. Click the value help for Accounts.
  5. Click the value help for the Territory.

Result: Only the main Territory ABC can be selected, but the sub-territories DEF and XYZ are not available.


It is currently not supported that you have automatically access to Sub-territories of your Territory.


To solve this without assigning your user to all the sub-territories you can do the following:

  1. Give your user full Read access to the Territory workcenter (Administration > Business Users/Business Roles resp > Edit Access Rights).
  2. Follow the steps 1-5 as per above.
  3. Go to Adaptation Mode.
  4. In the Territory select dropdown menu, choose My Territories and click Advanced Filters.
  5. Tick the box for Include Sub-Territories.
  6. Click Organize Queries and make the query My Territory the default query, while hiding the other queries.
  7. Click Apply and save your query.



We are planning to enhance the system to allow access to the Territory object based on the Territory Hierarchy. With this feature enhancement, you will be granted access to territories that are directly assigned as well as all child territories. Currently this enhancement is planned for a future release; however we are unable to give specific information.
