Restricting Users from specific fields on a form

Posted on by 2,988

Hi Experts,

A requirement was given to me is to restrict all the user except few users to access search Name and Product Name of a Product in "Product information Management|" Module. Not on list page on item itself.

Best Regards,

Shabir Ahmad

    Hi Shabir,

    The search name is stored in the table EcoResProduct and the product name is stored in the table EcoResProductTranslation. You can indeed set field permissions on the search name field. For the EcoResProductTranslation table, if you set specific permissions, it will be then also applicable to the product translations. I do assume you also want to restrict the access on the product name for all languages?

    You can also review if the other fields needs to be editable or not. If not, you can more easy set the access on table level only instead of field access. E.g. the EcoResProductTranslation table has a product name and description field. I would think that you need to give only view access on the whole table instead of having the description field still editable.

    Hi Shabir,

    Yes, you can use field level in AX2012.

    Please refer this blog:d365technext.blogspot.com/.../field-level-security.html

    Hi Shabir,

    You can use Permissions\Table nodes in privileges to restrict access to certain fields. In this case, you will need to have 2 different roles: one role with access and another without access to name fields.

    Check the scenario 2 section from the article
