I’ve developed some custom objects concerning job management and now I need to specify appropriate roles and permission for the users (Windows Logins, btw). I’m using NAV 5.0 SP1 IT.
Specifically, among other objects, I implemented a table “Job User Type”, which has to be available (Read,Insert,Modify,Delete) just to “Job admins”. Other users (“job managers”), must have the “Job” table available (R,I,M,D). Form “Job Card” reads, among others, table “Job User Type” to apply some logic to the displayed jobs.
So, after reading all the docs I found on the issue, I tried to set the appropriate permission. I did not find any predefined roles for job management, so I started from scratch with the “Job managers”, who must not see table “Job User Type”. I set all “Table Data” permissions to Yes for all the objects managers need to use directly, then set all “Table Data” permissions to “Indirect” for Table “Job User Type”. An error occurred, specifying I don’t have the permission to read from table “Job User Type”. But the role I’m defining must indeed not read that table, so I cannot set the Read permission to true, hence I tried to specify the R,I,M,D permissions to true for “Table” “Job User Type” (rather than “Table Data”). No change!
I tried several combinations, but I didn’t achieve my goal: it looks like I need to make “Job User Type” available to “Job managers”, whereas they should not be able to even know its existence… Am I missing some basic concept, or is it really so?
I always assigned also role “ALL” to the users I’m testing with…
Thank you very much in advance!
PS: I also used the Client Monitor, but I did not find further information.
