secure by project responsible

Recently, I was speaking about eXtensible Data Security (XDS) at a meetup session for the Pakistan Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform Community. I did a similar session several years ago and created three examples back then as part of the demonstrations of what would be possible to achieve with this framework for record-based security. For this recent session, based on a question on the Dynamics Community forum, I created a new example for restricting access to the projects and related information for a person who is one of the responsible persons. In this post, I will provide some more background information on the functional and technical details.

Secure by retail channel

When I initially learned AX 2012, before it got released, I was quite enthusiastic about the security changes and the organization hierarchies. Then also I learned about the eXtensible Data Security (XDS) concept. While working on one of my first AX2012 implementations, I also had to do a presentation for a Dutch community. The topic was about the Organizations and Hierarchies. While preparing the session, I suddenly got the idea to combine security role assignments, organizational hierarchies and XDS. After the presentation, I lost the demo and objects used at that time. For another presentation during the Summit EMEA in Dublin this year, also about organizational hierarchies, I decided to create a new demo. In a former blog, you can find the link for downloading the objects for this example. (Extensible Data Security examples for Microsoft Dynamics)

In this blog, I will explain you how this “Secure by retail channel” works functionally and technically.

Secure by warehouse

In this post, I will  continue explaining the examples created with eXtensible Data Security. In this part, I will explain how I did think of a solution for restricting warehouse access for users. There were a lot of questions on forums in the past about how to secure this. So, for a presentation on the Summit EMEA in Dublin this year, I decided to step into the challenges that comes with securing access to warehouses and related tables like inventory journals or purchase orders. I created a demo which will be covered in this part of the XDS blog series. In addition, this is a good example how to deal with different assignment of groupings per user without creating a policy per group or user.

Secure by legal entity

In my last blog, I shared some code examples for eXtensible Data Security (XDS). In this post, I will explain how it works and also introduce a V2 version which will be more advanced in determine which legal entities will be visible for the user.
