Permissions on Database Objects

This section provides an overview of permissions and permission sets in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018


If you have been granted permission to read a page, then you can open the page and view the data that it displays. If, however, you do not have write permission, you are not allowed to enter data into this page.

Sometimes, when you open a page it displays information from several tables. To access this page, you must have permission to view all the data displayed by the page. You might not have permission to read directly from all the tables that the page uses. In this case, you must have indirect permission to read from the tables in question. Having indirect permission to a table means that you cannot open the table and read from it but can only view the data it contains indirectly through another object, such as a page or report, that you have direct permission to access.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV has a number of standard predefined security permission sets. You can use these permission sets as defined or you can change a permission sets to suit your particular needs. You can also create your own permission sets and assign them the permissions that you want.
