You can setup new users in Dynamics NAV using various Authentications, and with various License Types. What are these?
Following are the license type options:
- Full User
The user has full read and full write permissions based on the license of that specific company.
- Limited User
A limited user will have full read permissions but only limited write permissions and also limited to predefined tables.
- Device Only User
A user that works with devices.
- Windows Group
You can also have users of Windows Groups, which means that they will inherit the settings of that Windows Group.
- External User
The customer of your customer.
You can create users with different authentication such as:
- Windows Authentication
With this credential type, users are authenticated using their Windows credentials.
- Access Control Service Authentication
With this setting, Microsoft Dynamics NAV relies on Microsoft Azure Access Control service (ACS) or Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for user authentication services.
- Microsoft Dynamics NAV Password Authentication
With this setting, the user is prompted for username/password credentials when they access Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
- Office 365 Authentication
It validates your Office 365 credentials.
