Security Groups: Unable to restrict access to storerooms

Storeroom information is used in transactions that affect inventory items and balances. As a security measure, you can authorize a security group to make transactions with specific storerooms.

Storeroom authorization has never been meant to enforce whether or not a user can 'see' a storeroom or its related inventory records. Storeroom authorization really means financial storeroom authorization. In other words, whether or not a user can affect the financial valuation of a store room.

A user who does not have storeroom rights should not be able to perform the following actions for any items in the storeroom: issue, return, transfer, balanace/cost adjustments, receipts, invoice variances.
