Security Role....Needed Permission:: Update.

    Hi Everyone,

    One of the user who has delete access to the form isn't able to see the new menu item in pending vendor invoice form in one of the UAT environments (10.0.8) .

    This behaviour is not reproduceable in other environments (dev or test). I tried copying the same permission as the user on my dev machines I am able to see the new button but not in the UAT environment.

    We had created a custom new button and have assigned the same menu item name with Needed permission as "Update" .

    Any advice on what could have went wrong or where to look in.

    I have disabled and enabled the user and tried but it dint work. The is no change in code in dev and UAT environment.

    form

    Thanks
    Krishnendu

    Adding to the above information I was checking on the security configuration from the application for the specific role and privilege I could see  the license type is "Team Members" ..

    Is there any difference between license types (teams members & operations) which may cause the issue

    Krishnendu,


    A user with Delete permission to a form should have access to the New button as security is hierarchy based in D365FO. (Read -> Update -> Create -> Delete)
    If a user is assigned a particular permission they automatically get permissions underneath it.

    When a situation like your arises it is normally because there is additional validation or some other business logic in code blocking a particular action. My guess is that the scenarios are not exactly the same across your environments which is why you are able to access the button in one and not in another with the same security.

    As far as licensing goes, licenses are tied to the menu items themselves and based on the access a user has to them will dictate which license is required for that particular access. You cannot change these, as these are properties on the menu items themselves.

    Hi Alex,

    thank you for the response, the code base is same across all  the environments , the issue is happening only in UAT...same issue isn't replicable in other dev or test environments as well as production support environment.

    I did remap the UAT code branch to my dev machine and tried to check if we are able to reproduce the issue,  the user with the same role is able to see the New button in the form.

    Not sure what is missing.


    Thanks

    Krishnendu,

    I apologize for not being more clear, there are times in AX/D365FO where there are conditions on the form that will designate whether certain elements of the form are visable/enabled that are completely separate of security. In a case like this, where the same security allows you to perform an action in a separate instance the code base could be exactly the same but the data or parameters in the two environments could be different causing this to occur.

    After doing some digging I can see there are a number of conditional checks in the code behind the VendInvoiceInfoListPage form that validate whether or not a user has access to certain actions in the menu bar. Enabling/disabling functionality from here would override the security assigned to a user.

    Hi Alex

    Thank you for the response I did check the form code and could not find any difference but after some digging I got the root cause..the user was having around 30+ roles and one of the role was overriding the access where the same menu item was having no access ...after removing the role the new button is visible.

    I really appreciate you taking out your time and responding.

    Thanks
    Krish
