Drill downs in the Security Setup windows

This article explains a very simple feature which may times goes unnoticed in Microsoft Dynamics GP 10 and 2010. We have many windows where we define the security related information. They are listed below.

  • Security Task
  • Security Roles
  • User Security
  • Alternate Modified Forms & Reports

In the windows listed above, you can drill down into the actual GP form (or) report so that you can view the form or report easily and determine if the security task needs access to that window or not.

In the following security windows, you can directly drill down into the specific security task, by double clicking on the security task name displayed in the window for a specific role.

In this window explained below, we can drill down into the specific security role that are listed.

This when defining security, we have a drill down from the user security access definition window into the actual security role, which in turn has a drill down into the actual security tasks, which in turn has a drill down into the actual forms and reports.

Hope this helps the community…

Until next post!

Security Window Enhancements in Dynamics GP 2010

One of the cool enhancements (which mostly goes unnoticed) in Dynamics GP 2010 is the new checkbox which is applicable in the Security windows explained below, which allows the users to see only the options selected for the particular record (i.e.) in case of the Security Roles window, the checkbox allows us to filter and display ONLY the security tasks which are assigned to the specific role. In Dynamics GP 10, this option was not available and the user has to scroll through the entire list to see the selected options.

This filtering option is available in the following windows.

  1. Security Task Window
  2. Security Roles Window
  3. User Security Window

The screenshots below depict how these filters work and how they help us see just about the required details.
