Batch manager security role

Important

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is now being licensed as Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. For more information about these licensing changes, see Dynamics 365 Licensing Update.

Before Platform update 20, users needed to be assigned to the system admin or IT admin security role to manage batch jobs. With the release of Plaform update 20 there is a more targeted role, Batch manager. With this security role, a user now has permissions to copy batch jobs, change who will execute jobs, and specify the time ranges during which jobs can execute. The Batch maintain security privilege is part of the Batch manager security role and it allows a user to create an ad hoc batch job and grant privileges to other users.

Note

This feature is available as of Platform update 20.

Run by user

The run by user functionality allows Batch managers to specify a user to run the batch job. This is useful when you want to change the user who is currently assigned to run the job or if you want to quickly set a user while copying the batch jobs from one company to another. You can also use this functionality to copy batch jobs.
