Users and Groups

In Employee Portal you can define different groups of Web Part Requests. This means that you can set up several types of portal users to browse and do business activities in your portal. Different users can have different permissions to perform different activities, such as business, maintenance or administration activities.

Employee Portal allows you to create users, assign them to groups and modify the rights of these users from within Navision.

In order to create portal users, you must give them an identity within Navision that allows them to log on to your portal. When users are working on your portal, they are able to perform tasks in accordance with the permissions that they have been granted. You can create your own groups to fit your specific needs. It is up to you to decide which roles you would like your Web portal users to have.

Before you can create Employee Portal users in Navision, you have to create and configure the users as Windows users and as SharePoint Server users.


A group is a collection of Web Part Requests. Web Part Requests are based on Navision information and/or functionality that helps the user perform a task. You can combine the Web Part Requests in any way that meets your needs.

You can choose to set up a few general groups, each containing all the permissions for one user type, or you can set up a group for each task or part of a task that users will perform. Then you can customize each user's rights and possibilities.


Users can be assigned to a group to get access to the Web Part Requests that are assigned to that group.

You can define in what language the data will be presented to the user on your portal page. All other settings are inherited from the group.
