The following list contains some important things to consider when setting up your Microsoft Dynamics NAV security system.
- The Microsoft Dynamics NAV security system is
initiated when you create the first login. Until you create the
first login, any user can have full access to carry out any
transaction in a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database. Therefore, the
first login that you create must be a superuser (that is, should be
assigned the SUPER permission set). The superuser must own and
administer all access to the database from within Microsoft
Dynamics NAV. We recommend that the user who administers security
in Microsoft Dynamics NAV be a superuser.
- One of the first things that the superuser
should do is create logins for the other users that will have
access to the database and grant them the appropriate
- In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a table can
contain a FlowField, which generates sums based on values that are
stored in another table. When using a FlowField, a user must have
permission to read both tables or they will not be allowed to read
the first table.
