Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The domain account that you select to serve as the workflow execution account must have the following characteristics:

  • It must be a dedicated account. A dedicated account is used only for a specific purpose.

  • It must have a password that does not expire.

  • It must have minimal access to network resources.

  1. Click System administration > Setup > System > System service accounts.

  2. Go to the Workflow execution account area of the form.

  3. Specify a domain account to serve as the workflow execution account. You can specify the domain account in one of two ways:

    • Enter the domain and user name, or alias, of the account.

    • Select a Microsoft Dynamics AX user.

    The account that you specify is assigned to the Microsoft Dynamics AX system administrator role.

  4. If you are using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 or later, repeat steps 1 through 3 for each partition in your Microsoft Dynamics AX installation.
