Preventing Users from Changing Profile (Roles)

Posted on by 45
Is there a way to stop users from changing their roles (profiles) in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central? I want to make sure users can't switch to different roles on their own. Any tips on how to do this would be great.
Thanks in advance!

    Another simple method is to hide this field from the page.
    Hope this can give you some hints as well.

    You can do it by excluding the permissions for the My Settings Page/Table and the User Settings Page/Table for the users that should not be able to change their role.

    You should be able to manage via Permissions.
