Business value

AL developers can now elevate specific permissions in the critical code paths, such as company initialization or the sign-in process.

Feature details

We're introducing a new attribute for procedures, InherentPermissions, which is available for on-premises deployments only in this release.


(PermissionObjectType::Table, Table::"Retention Period", 'ri’)]

Within this method, all users will have at least indirect permission to read and to insert into the specified table.
