Sets a value for a table field or UI element that determines the permission mask for an object that a user must have to see and access the related page fields or UI element in the client. The UI element will be removed at runtime if the user does not have permissions to a certain object as specified in the Access By Permission window. For more information, see How to: Remove UI Elements Using the AccessByPermission Property.
All types of UI elements will be removed if they relate to an object to which the user does not have the required permissions:
Fields on pages, including FactBoxes
Actions on pages, including toolbars and navigation panes
Page parts, such as Lines FastTabs
To use this property, the UI Elements Removal field in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server Administration tool must be set to LicenseFile or LicenseFileAndUserPermissions. For more information, see How to: Specify When UI Elements Are Removed.

When you choose the AssistEdit button, the Access By Permission window opens. Fill the fields as described in the following table.
|Object Type||Specify the type of object to which permission is required to display the UI element.|
|Object ID||Specify the object to which permission is required to display the UI element.|
|Read||Specify if Read permission is required to display the UI element.|
|or Insert||Specify if Insert permission is required to display the UI element.|
|or Modify||Specify if Modify permission is required to display the UI element.|
|or Delete||Specify if Delete permission is required to display the UI element.|
|or Execute||Specify if Execute permission is required to display the UI element.|
If multiple permissions are selected, then one or the other applies.
Example: Remove the Unit Price field if the user does not have permission to the Sales Price table
Open table 27, Item Card, with the Table Designer.
View the properties of field 18, Unit Price.
For the AccessByPermission property, choose the AssistEdit button in the Value field.
In the Access By Permission window, fill the fields as described in the following table.
Field Description Object Type TableData Object ID Sales Price Read Select Insert Select Modify Leave blank Delete Leave blank Execute Leave blank
Close the Access By Permission window and save the changes on table 27.
All instances of the Unit Price field on pages are now removed if the user does have Read or Insert permission to the Sales Price table.
If you defined the property for a table field, then all instances of the field on pages are removed. To override the property on an individual page field, delete the permission value after the = sign in the Value field. Do NOT delete the whole string as that will be replicated on the property of the table field.
To use the LicenseFileAndUserPermissions option in the UI Elements Removal field, you must assign the special FOUNDATION permission set to the user along with the relevant application permission sets that define which application objects the user will access. Unlike the BASIC permission set, the FOUNDATION permission set only grants access to application setup and system tables and requires that other assigned permission sets define which specific application objects can be accessed. For more information, see Special Permission Sets.
Not all of the 167 default permission sets that are provided with Microsoft Dynamics NAV are ready to support the FOUNDATION permission set to remove UI elements according to user permissions. You must therefore edit the relevant permission sets as explained in the following procedures.
To experience how UI elements are removed for a user performing the task to create and edit a new customer, you can create a sample user interface based on default permission sets provided with Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
