If you have been a consultant or system admin for a company utilizing Dynamics GP, then you have probably gotten the request to produce a listing of Users with all of their permissions and securities. Therefore, you probably know that this listing is extremely difficult with out-of-the-box reporting or any kind of simple query in SQL.
If you are on GP 2013 or higher or have SmartList Builder as a registered module then you are in luck. Building a SmartList to export to Excel to create the matrix or listing will take about 15-30 minutes to set up. If you don't have Designer (GP 2013 and 2015 SmartList capability), then you will need to create a view in SQL.
For the SmartLists with Designer/Builder you will create a custom SmartList with this general configuration:
- Choose Product: Microsoft Dynamics GP
- Select Series: System
- In tables hit the + and add the Users Master table
- with User ID as the Key Field
- While User Master is highlighted, click the + again and select the Security Assignment User Role
- Link on the User ID Field
- While Security assignment User Role is highlighted click + again and select the Security Roles Master
- Link on Security Role ID Field
- This will give you the detail of the Assigned Roles
- While the Security Roles Master is highlighted click +again and select Security Assignment Role Task
- Link on Security Role ID
- This will list each Task ID associated with the Role
- While Security Assignment Role Task is highlighted click + again and select Security Task Master
- Link on Security Task ID
- This will list each Tasks actual assigned activities
If you do not have the Designer or Builder, use SQL to create a view that you can save as an .rpt and then open in Excel.
These are the tables you will create the view with:
- In Dynamics DB:
- SY01400 - User Master
- SY10500 - Security Assignment User Role
- SY09100 - Security Roles Master
- SY10600 - Security Assignment Role Task
- SY09000 - Security Task Master
It will be up to your preference as to what columns to add and joining methods you would like to use.
