The following permission sets have special definitions that you should note as you implement permissions and security for Microsoft Dynamics NAV users.

Permission set Definition


Can read, use, change, and delete all data and all application objects within the scope of your license. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 requires that at least one user be assigned this permission set in each database.

For more information, see First User Is Automatically Assigned the SUPER Permission Set.

You cannot modify permissions for the SUPER permission set.


Can read, use, change, and delete all data. You typically assign this permission set to an accounting manager who needs to work with all data but does not need to make changes to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.


A prerequisite for all other permission sets that grants access to required system tables and other fundamental tables. When you create a new database you must import the BASIC permission set from an XML file. For more information, see How to: Work with the BASIC Permission Set.
