As with past releases of Microsoft Dynamics GP, there are some new security roles and security tasks that have been added with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 release and because of this, if you are upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 from either Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, you will need to run the attached scripts to make sure all of the security records are present in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018.
The tables impacted are SY10600, SY10700, SY09000 and SY09100 security tables and the new security records are mainly new functionality that is available in the new Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 release.
You will want to run these scripts against your system database for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 after the upgrade has completed on all databases and backups have been made.
This is by design in that we would not roll down new security roles to an existing Microsoft Dynamics GP environment, which may cause issues with your current security design. Therefore, we have chosen to release these new security records as an INSERT script, even though we do not recommend making any modifications to our default security roles or security tasks, but instead create custom security roles and security tasks to use and make changes to.
A new installation of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 will already have all of these security records in the system tables, it is only when upgrading from either Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 that this issue will occur and require the running of these security record scripts.
The scripts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 missing security roles and security tasks can be downloaded from this link:
DYNAMICS GP 2018 SECURITY INSERT SCRIPTS V2.txt
If you are upgrading from a version of Microsoft Dynamics GP prior to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 version, you do not need to run any other insert scripts for missing security roles or security tasks for prior versions, you only need to run these scripts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018.
***NOTE: When you run these insert scripts against your system database for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018, it is normal that you will see PRIMARY KEY error messages referencing duplicated records trying to be inserted into the security tables. This can be ignored as it means that the record(s) already exist in that table and the script will not overwrite anything that is already present.
Thank you and Happy Upgrading!!!!
