Each role in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 describes a set of access permissions to tables, reports, functions, and other objects. The types of permissions are:

When you assign permissions to roles, you should not grant permissions to areas that your license file does not allow you to use. However, granting such permissions does not cause any problems. If you update Microsoft Dynamics NAV or purchase additional application areas, then you must change or add appropriate permissions.

You use the Classic client to view, modify, and create permissions. On the Tools menu, point to Security, and then click Roles. The Roles window displays the IDs and names of all roles in the current database.


A table can contain a FlowField that generates sums based on values that are stored in another table. In this case, users must have permission to read both tables or they are not allowed to read the first table.
