Functionality of limited user in NAV 2013

Hi all,

Not sure if I am posting this in the right forum so mods please move if appropriate. My question is what functionality does the limited user have in NAV 2013. Where can I find information about this?

Thank you for your help!

    Hi Magnus,

    Check out page 6 and appendix A in Dynamics ERP Perpetual Licensing Guide.

    For Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013:

    • “Read” access to data contained in the ERP solution through any client accessing the application via the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Application Programming Interface (API) including but not limited to the User Interface Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics NAV
    • Write access via the Timesheet functionality
    • Write access through any client accessing the ERP solution via the Microsoft Dynamics NAV API to a maximum of 3 table objects in any range number with the following exceptions:
      • limited users are not allowed to write to any of the following tables: General Ledger (table 17), Permission Set (table number 2000000004), Permission (table number 2000000005) or Access Control (table number 2000000053); and
      • any table described in Appendix A as “Limited User Included Tables” do not count towards the 3 table objects.

    Appendix A includes:

    Hi Erik,

    thank you for your detailed explanation. But I can not find in NAV 2013 setup where (or how) to specity 3 tables in which I want to allow write data.

    Do you have any experience with it?



  • In reply to pvobecky:

    Hi All,

    May I please know, whether the Limited user table restriction getting applied in 2013, or it will get applicable on next version ?

  • In reply to Uday Mer:

    In the current NAV 2013 the restrictions are actually not technically applied. So here it's based upon a trust between the customer and the partner who sells the license and Microsoft. Technically it is not being enforced!

    I have not yet tested this functionality  in NAV 2013 R2, but will post an update when I get the chance.

  • In reply to Erik P. Ernst:

    Hi Erik.

    I have tested a Limited User (with role SUPER) in NAV2013R2, and apparently the Limited User works as limited user!
    I've tried to Release, Ship and Post a sales order but and i  could not (every time the same message: You do not have the following permissions on TableData XXXXXXXXX: Modify).

    Did you try it in NAV2013 r2?

    I hope you comments about it.

    Best regards
