Finding if a Role is assigned to users

Posted on by 345


Is there a way to check all Roles in the system and check for each of them if they are assigned to a user? that includes sub roles as well?

    You could also do it from the AX development client easily in a Job, or by simple table browsing like this:

    AOT > System documentation > Tables > SecurityRole > Right click > Add-ins > Table browser.

    Take note of the RecId of the role you are interested in, like -SYSADMIN- standing for System Administrator access.

    AOT > System documentation > Tables > SecurityUserRole > Right click > Add-ins > Table browser.

    Filter the SecurityRole column for the RecId of the role, and you will see all users.

    Hi Waller Walker,

    Please check the assign user to roles form.

    In the lower part part you can identify the users that are assigned to a specific role.

    Best regards,

    Hi Waller Walker,

    You can navigate to system administration > security > security configuration to see all the roles in the system. By selecting the role you want to inquire for check the references where you can see all sub roles and even the parent roles for it.

    For the user assigned to the roles kindly check the users in the system administration and open the user details to see all the assigned roles to that user.
