Profiles (Role) customization is not working

Posted on by 6
Hello everyone,
the profiles (role) customization is currently not working for every role in our environment. 
  • I tried to restart our SQL-Server and the associated service tier, where the business central service is running.
  • If I start the customization for any profile / role, following error message is showing up.

Thank you in advance :)

    Hi, You can export from the standard environment (Cronus), then import into this environment and try again.
    Hope this helps.

    Hello Saurav.Dhyani,
    this problem also appears on profiles with source = base application.
    The customization worked fine around the end of april. Now we have this strange problem.
    Best regards

    it seems you are upgraded from Dynamics NAV.
    The profiles that have these errors are legacy profiles which you should delete. These profiles are from legacy NAV.
    You can filter these profiles in Profiles page where Source = ''.
    All profiles should come via an App / Extension in Business Central.
    hope it helps.
