Note

Effective November 2020:

  • Common Data Service has been renamed to Microsoft Dataverse. Learn more
  • Some terminology in Microsoft Dataverse has been updated. For example, entity is now table and field is now column. Learn more

This article will be updated soon to reflect the latest terminology.

Role-based security controls access to a specific entity type, record-based security controls access to individual records, and field-level security controls access to specific fields. You can use a field security profile to manage the permission of users and teams to read, create, or write in secured fields. For example, the System Administrator field security profile gives full access to all secured fields.

  1. Go to Settings > Security.

  2. Choose Field Security Profiles.

  3. Choose the profile name that you want to add teams or users to.

  4. Under Related, choose Teams or Users.

  5. On the Actions toolbar, choose Add.

  6. Select a team or user from the list. You can search for a team or user first.

  7. Choose Add.

  8. Close the field security profile record.
