How to change a security model in Navision?


Can anyone please explain to me how to change a Security Model in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0?

Thank you



I checked this in October and have just looked at the documentation again.

Full details are provided as part of SP3 release documentation which is available from this site or


When you say “Security Model”, do you mean a Role? Or are you talking about changing the whole security structure in Navision?

If you’re talking about roles, you can access it by clicking on Tools → Security → Roles.

Hi Amudha

You can only change Security Model if you are using Navision 4.0 SP3.

Select File → Database → Alter. Select the Advanced page. Change the Model under the Security heading. Possible options Standard (=Security model before v4.0) or Enhanced (=Security model in 4.0, 4.0 SP1 and 4.0 SP2).
