How to posting restrict general journal in AX 2012

Hi, all
I got a question about posting restrict general journal.

There is a example of financial team work.

WHO Entry Journal Approval Posting
Rechard O X X
John O O X
Steven O O O

So, i setup an approval & posting restriction in the journal name(G/L > setup > journal > journal names)

  1. checked approval & setup the users group (created approval team include John, Steven)

  2. setup the posting restriction (select only steven)

If Rechard try to posting, it shound not posted but the journal posted and error message does not appeard.

anyone knows how to solve the problem?

help me TT


In the journal, user Richard should have Post option as disabled. In the journal, are the Approval button enabled with options Report as ready and approved.

Is the user able to approve the journal also.


Hi, Pranav.

  1. I found User rechard didn’t approve the journal and appeared the error message.

(error message : The journal cannot be approved. The journal can be approved only by a user in group Team A)

  1. User John reviewed the journal and Approved it. And, User Steven can review, approve and post this journal because of his authority setup in the posting restrictions.

I think John didn’t post this journal… but, he can post that journal.

is there a some setup option else?
