1st post, and hope it's the right area..
Hi, realy basic question, as I try to grasp how D365 F&O works.
I've been reviewing some training on security, but it's just not clear to me how to do the following.
I wanted to see if I could create my own role, then a duty, then see if I could assign privileges such that a user could see All of the
customers in the A/R module.(picked that module at random, just for testing)
What I've done so far:
1) Created a role
2) Assigned a new duty to above role(using "Create new and add reference")
3) Created a new priv, using "Create new and reference"
Now, I click the new priv, and I can see under "References", "Action menu items", "Display menu items", etc etc
From here, I'm lost as to how I associate a priv with my A/R customer list?
Any help/direction is greatly appreciated!
I have an entire blog on D365FO security available here: http://d365foblog.com

To answer your question directly, you would have to determine which object(s) allow you to perform the task you are looking to perform. From my past experience I know that the customer list is controlled by the CustTableListPage menu item display. The next step is to then determine at what level access you would like to grant access to this object with the access types being a hierarchy based on: Read -> Update -> Create -> Delete. Once you determine the correct object(s) and access type then its a matter of assigning the object to the privilege, the privilege to a duty, the duty to a role, and the role to a user.
Feel free to reach out with any further security questions I would be happy to help.
Hi Alex, and thanks much for the reply..I probably shouldn't admit it, but I recently completed one of your courses, but I'm still struggling with the task at hand.I'm charged with creating custom role(s), and the 1st one centers around pricing.
I am currently trying to hide some controls on the 'Accounts receivable parameters' Form / Prices tab
I have been advised that I should be making my security configurations in the UI.
I just cannot seem to expose the Controls on that form, no matter what I do for adding references etc..
I highlight my role name, hit Privileges, choose "Create new and add..."
I give it a name, then highlight that new prov name
I then click "Display menu items", then "Add references", I choose "CustParameters" & add it with 'Read'
I then click "CustParameters" reference, and I have "Controls" & "Data sources" available next to it.
If I click Controls, I can get nothing to show up. What I'm trying at this point is, to use the control name I got by right clicking the form & seeing the control name, which is: "Prices_MarkupHeading"
That however, does not appear as an item when I look for it..
That's about where it breaks down & I get lost..
Am I doing this the wrong way?
