Select one of the following viewing options:

  • Main menu – View permissions based on where the associated menu items appear in the menu structure of Microsoft Dynamics AX.

    NoteNote

    Be aware that the name of a menu item is sometimes different than the name of the user interface element that is associated with that menu item. Main menu view displays the names of menu items.

You can select one of the following access levels for permissions:

  • No access – Users will not have access to the selected element.

  • Create – Users will be able to create new objects, but will not be able to delete objects. This access level does not apply to service operations, output menu items (reports), or action menu items.

  • Correction – Users will be able to modify objects that have an effective date in the past. This access level does not apply to service operations, output menu items (reports), or action menu items.

  • Full control – Users will be able to view, create, and delete objects or items. This access level does not apply to output menu items (reports).
