This section gives an overview of the permissions that a role can have on an object.


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

Sometimes, when you open a form it displays information from several tables. To access this form, you must have permission to view all the data displayed by the form. You might not have permission to read directly from all the tables that the form 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 form or report, that you have direct permission to access.

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