The "Restricted Records" page in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is designed for managing and viewing records that have restrictions applied to them. This could involve various types of limitations based on security, data access, compliance, or other business-specific rules that control how records are accessed and by whom. Here’s an overview of what this page is typically used for and its functionalities:

Purpose of the "Restricted Records" Page

  1. Access Control: This page helps in managing access to particular records within the system. It's part of implementing security measures that restrict data visibility to certain users based on their roles or other criteria.

  2. Data Security: Ensures sensitive or critical business data is only accessible by authorized personnel, thus maintaining data integrity and security.

  3. Compliance: In many industries, certain records need to be restricted due to regulatory compliance requirements. This page allows for the easy handling and auditing of these records to ensure compliance with laws and regulations.

Key Functionalities

  • Search: Allows users to find specific restricted records quickly.
  • Analyze: Offers tools or views to analyze the data within restricted records, which could help in understanding the access patterns or the type of data being restricted.
  • Manage: Provides options to manage settings or parameters that define the restriction rules, possibly allowing for adjustment of access controls or viewing details of the restrictions.
  • Record: May allow for modifications or annotations directly related to the restrictions or the restricted data entries.
  • Automate: Could provide automation features that apply certain actions to the restricted records based on predefined rules or triggers.

Typical Use Cases

  • Confidential Information: Managing access to confidential business information, such as financial data, personal employee details, or proprietary knowledge.
  • Regulated Data: Handling data that is subject to government or industry regulations requiring that access be limited to certain users.
  • Audit and Control: Facilitating audits by keeping track of who has access to sensitive data and why, helping organizations maintain stringent control environments.


The "Restricted Records" page is a crucial component in Business Central for maintaining strict control over sensitive data, ensuring only authorized users have access based on their permissions. It supports adherence to security protocols and compliance regulations, thereby protecting the organization from potential data breaches or legal penalties.
