  • 1.  Production Order Process Permissions

    Posted Sep 01, 2022 01:01 PM
    I am trying to give permissions to a user to have all of the options under the process tab for production orders. Currently, the user is missing the estimate, release, and end buttons. Since all the buttons have the same menu item name, I am having a hard time finding what I need to add in order to give the user those permissions.

    While the options in the menu bar all live on the same form, each one is a separate menu item display/output/action or to a piece of code that is executed when clicked.

    Looking in the AOT at the form you can find the menu options and then when selected they will tell you which object is associated to it.

    For example, the Estimate button is associated with the ProdCostEstimationAction menu item action.

    The release button is tied to the ProdReleaseAction menu item action, and the end button is tied to the ProdHistoricalCostAction menu item action.

    If you want a more automated way to find this type of information out I would suggest checking out the Fastpath Security Designer tool (that I am the lead developer on) which takes task recordings and will tell you the objects consumed during while recording. So instead of having to go into the AOT to find this information out you would simply record yourself performing the process and then upload that task recording and then find the objects that are consumed.

    Note: Dynamics does have a tool that does a similar process however there are a number of gaps with it including that it doesn't look at menu item outputs or actions (I actually have a blog post on it here). Since a majority of the questions you are asking include menu item actions I didn't recommend it but wanted to let you know about it as well.

    Feel free to reach out with any questions.
