Security in the RoleTailored Environment

An enterprise business solution must have a built-in security system that helps protect your database and the information that it contains from unauthorized access. It must also allow you to specify what authorized users are allowed to do in the database, such as what data they can read and modify.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 provides a security system that allows administrators to manage user access to the objects and data in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database. Because the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database is on SQL Server, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV security system and SQL Server security system work together to help ensure that only authorized users can gain access to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database.


For additional information on installing and running Microsoft Dynamics NAV securely, download the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Security Hardening Guide from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Developer and IT Pro Help page in the Microsoft Download Center.

Security in the Classic Environment

For additional information about Microsoft Dynamics NAV security and for information about setting up security for Classic client users, see "Installation & System Management: SQL Server Option for the C/SIDE Client" (w1w1isql.pdf) and "Installation & System Management: C/SIDE Database Server for Microsoft Dynamics NAV" (w1w1ism.pdf). These manuals, which are available from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Developer and Installation Guides page in the Microsoft Download Center, were created for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 but are still relevant for most security processes and concepts.
