Permission sets are at the core of controlling access to AL objects. When adding new objects, however, it can be easy to forget to update the permissions. To help with this, it's now possible with a new AL command to generate or update a permission file for the active project.
Now there's a command to generate a permission set as an AL object: al.generatePermissionSetForExtensionObjects.
When invoking the command, the developer can choose to create a new permission file or select an existing file to update.
The previous functionality of creating a permission set XML file is moved into the command al.generatePermissionSetForExtensionObjectsAsXml.
