Security roles in the public sector
This article describes the functionality for public sector security roles. This functionality includes the Project manager and Purchasing agent roles for the public sector.
All users must be assigned to at least one security role to have access to Dynamics 365 Finance. Security roles determine which duties users can perform and which parts of the user interface they can view.
What are the prerequisites for assigning security roles in the public sector?
Users must exist in Finance before you can assign them to roles. Even if you use automatic role assignment, users themselves aren't automatically added.
Which roles do I have to assign?
After users are in the system, there are two roles that you might have to set up for public sector organizations:
