  • 1.  AX2012 System Admin INQUIRY ONLY security role

    Posted May 13, 2015 10:03 AM

    Has anyone come across or created an all access VIEW ONLY role?  Management has asked if it's possible to create an all encompassing System Administrator type role that would be VIEW ONLY have no update capabilities but enable a user to investigate and troubleshot encountered issues?

    Good Day Angelo :-)

    we can try with duplicating administration role and then setting / Overriding Access Level Permission to read only, but we have not try doing that.

    A similar discussion took place recently (and there may be more that I am not aware of).  Search for "Auditor Security Roles" and review that discussion to see if it proves helpful in your specific situation.

    I have created several View Only security groups. I used the suggested method of copying an existing security group and just setting the override options in all tables to View Only but that did not work, users could still create and delete items/orders. The only way I found to do it was to remove all Privileges and Duties that were not Inquiry types.
