Summarizing Permission Sets: Easy Security

  • 1.  Summarizing Permission Sets: Easy Security

    Posted Aug 06, 2018 09:46 AM
    Hi all, I am trying to see a summary of users permissions sets for what a user is capable of doing in NAV. I have narrowed down what users i need to review since almost all users are assigned permissions as user ID. The assigned permission as user ID is someone who works in their department. However, over the years i have no idea if these users assigned to others were giving more roles and responsibilities that required some permission sets that some newer employees should not have. There are a lot of permission sets on the users tables and even more permissions in them, and would take way too much time to comb through. Is there a simpler way to compile a users permissions sets to audit them in easy security?

    ​I'm not sure if this will help you, but EasySecurity has a Role Where Used function.  You can enter a permission set ID and see what user ID's have access to that permission set.

    You can also do the same from the Roles list.  There is a column called "Login Access Controls" and you can click on the number in that column for a list of user ID's with access.

    FastPath provides software that can also help audit your NAV Security and help you identify segregation of duty issues.

    You can use the Summary Permissions to verify what a user have access to by TableData or Object. When you find something that you do not think is what a user should have access to can you use the "Assigned From" to see which Permission Sets give the access.
