Business value

We've given Business Central security administrators improved control over who has access to what. The administrators can specify which permission sets or user groups are relevant for different product licenses and plans. Then, when someone signs up, they are automatically granted the permissions that the administrator specified for their license or plan.

Feature details

Business Central security administrators can define which permission sets or user groups are assigned by default to a user when they sign up. Specifying which permission sets or user groups are relevant for a license or plan helps the administrator ensure that the user has the right access from the start.

You can access new License Configuration from Administrator of Users, User Groups, and Permissions role center.
