Updated: July 19, 2012

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

All users in online services for Microsoft Dynamics ERP have one or more roles with respect to their organization and the particular online service. Each user has access to specific services and actions as authorized by their roles. For example, someone with the Sites-Administrators role can set up and maintain Sites Services for Microsoft Dynamics ERP, while someone with the Sites-Users role can use Sites Services, but not administer it.

When you sign up for a new online service, you are automatically added to the organization and the online service. You are also assigned a service administrator role for that service, so you can add other users and maintain their roles.

  1. Click Organization administration > Setup > Sites Services > Configuration checklist.

  2. Click Set up users to open the User management page in Customer Portal.

  3. Click New.

  4. Specify the following information about the user:

    • First and last name.

    • Windows Live™ ID.

      NoteNote

      If the user is a member of CustomerSource, PartnerSource, or the Microsoft Dynamics Community, use the same Windows Live ID as for those sites.

    • Primary e-mail address.

  5. Under Services and roles, in the Available roles list, select a role for the user, and then click the single arrow to add the role to the Selected roles list.

    TipTip

    You can click the double arrow to add all roles.

  6. Click Save.

  7. In the list of users, select the check box for the user whom you just added, and then click Send invitation.

    The user will receive an e-mail message with a link to complete his or her association with the online service. The user must use the same Windows Live ID to sign in to the service that you specified in step 4.

  8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 for each user that you want to add.
