Deprecated: EPBookkeeperRoleCenter [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

In Microsoft Dynamics AX, users are assigned to Role Centers based on user profiles, which are sets of default information for a specific role in the organization. Each user is assigned to a user profile, and a Role Center is specified for each profile. The Bookkeeper role is responsible for tasks such as creating and paying vendor invoices, creating sales invoices, billing customers, recording customer payments, depositing payments into bank accounts, reconciling bank statements, printing financial statements, and closing the books at the end of the month.

  • Default user profile: Bookkeeper

  • Role Center page name: EPBookkeeperRoleCenter



Reason for deprecation

Because of changes in the security model in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, the Bookkeeper role is no longer required. Therefore, the Bookkeeper role has been removed from business intelligence (BI) cubes. The Bookkeeper Role Center and the underlying Web Parts have also been removed. In general, Role Centers themselves do not have security, but the securable items that are displayed on a Role Center might. The Accountant role has been identified as equivalent to the Bookkeeper role because of the similarity in duties and privileges.

Replaced by another feature

No. The feature is no longer available, and there is no replacement feature.
