How to Define Privileges from Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Interface?

In this article, I will explain how to create privilege objects from Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations interface. In my previous article, I explained how fatih.test user was created. I will show an example based on this user. I deleted all roles of the user except system user. I will define a new role and grant privilege a certain object.

Image-1

You can see the menus in Image-2 only when you enter the application with the System user role.

Image-2

In this example, I will define a role that is authorized only for the All Customers form.

Image-3

First, find the name All Cutomers MenuItem. I looked it up from the development environment. You can also see it on the form. CustTableListPage

Image-4

Open your application with a user that has admin privilege and open the System Administration -> Security Configuration form. Got to the Privileges tab and click Create new. Enter the name from the window that opens and click OK.

Image-5

You must define the privilege for the privilege created. We want to authorize a Display menu Item. While on the Display menu Item record, click Add references. Filter and select CustTableListpage from the window that opens. Select Grant for all of them and click OK. We have defined the authorization.

Image-6

Go to the Duties tab and Click New. Enter a name and create.

Image-7

In order to add Privilege over the resulting Duty, we select the Privilege we created by clicking Add Reference.

Image-8

Go to the role tab and create a new role.

Image-9

Similarly, add the Duty you created previously as a reference.

Image-10

After these processes, the role privilege definition is finished. But first we need to Publish these objects.

Image-11

After publishing the privilge objects, go to your user, click Assign Roles and select the role you created from the screen that opens.

Image-12

When you log back into the system with your test user, you will see the menu you have authorized.

Image-13

In this article, I tried to explain how to create privilege objects in the simplest form through the application. Creating from the screen like this something I am not used to. I prefer to create it from the development environment. Also, objects are not created when you create them from the screen. Therefore you need to use Export-Import to move them to other environments. I will also talk about this feature. In addition, I will explain how to make privilege definitions through the development environment in my next article. Privilege is an extensive topic. I will try to talk about all the details.

Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Security Infrastructure?

In this article, I will try to explain the Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations security architecture. There is a docs article that I like very much, I will try to recap the topics by referencing it. It is very important to understand the security infrastructure. In today’s projects, managing security and authorization can be a very demanding process. In order to manage the needs correctly, it is necessary to know the infrastructure and the features, capabilities and constraints of security tools. In this article I will address the following topics. I did not translate them into Turkish. Sometimes there is a semantic shift, so I think explaning them is better.

•             Security architecture

•             Role-based security

•             Duties

•             Privileges

•             Permissions

•             Authentication

•             Authorization

•             Auditing

Finance and Operations application uses role-based security structure. Authorizations are given to roles, users are not directly authorized. Users are assigned roles. A user without any role has no authority in the system. The user assigned the admin role has full authorization. More precisely, they are not subject to any restrictions. Role-based security is a hierarchical structure as seen in Image-1.

Image-1

Role-based security

Role-based security has actually been created parallel to the work of business units. Role is the structure in which the necessary authorizations are gathered for a position with certain duties to fulfill those duties. The role is actually parallel to the employee’s actual job in the company. It does not mean that every employee has a role. In some cases, a single person may be managing different business processes. So they must have multiple roles. It is essential to organize roles according to the job, not the person. At least one role is required to log into the system. Generally, everyone is given the role of System User.  You can use the System administration > Users > Assign users to roles form to assign the role.

Role assignment is made by admin accounts. Basically, roles consist of Duties and Privileges.

Image-2

Duties

Duties are where the necessary authorizations are gathered to carry out a certain work process. A task can be assigned to multiple roles. Therefore, a change you make to the duty automatically affects the assigned roles. The role can be assigned directly in Privilege, but for a more manageable infrastructure, it is necessary to create and use the duties.

Image-3

Privileges

It is the structure where the authorizations required to do a certain job are gathered. For example, the payment cancellation privilege only has the authorization required to do this job. You can give this privilege directly to the role, but as I said above, it would be a better approach to collect them in duties and assign them to roles. Security and authorization objects are defined for all objects in the system. You can find and replace the ones you need and add new ones. Especially in new developments, it is absolutely necessary to create Privilege. Duty may not be required for every development. It may be enough to grant this authorization with a specific duty, but not without Privilege.

Image-4

Permissions

Permissions refers to the level of authorization to access a specific object. This can be a MenuItem or any object. Generally, authorization is given through the entry point. And these are usually MenuItems. In some cases we also use it to directly define authorization for an object of the form.

Authentication

This is my favorite feature in the new version. I can use all tools with a single email. One of them, of course, is the Finance and Operations application. To enter the application, your user login must be created. I explained it in my previous article. Usually users are expected to be in Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD), but you can also add external users. You can set up 2-step verification.

Authorization

Authorization controls access to the Finance and Operations application. Security permissions are used for this. Security permissions determine how certain objects of the application are accessed. These objects are: menus, menu items, action and command buttons, reports, service operations, web URL menu items, web controls and fields.

Finance and Operations application uses a context-based security, so we define the level of access to a certain object. When you associate a privilege with an entry point, you also define an access level. Such as Read, Delete, update.

Auditing

User login and logout times are recorded. You can access these records from the admin account. (System administration > Inquiries > User log).

In this article, I tried to introduce you to the security infrastructure. It is a very extensive and detailed topic. Generally, projects have a person or team responsible only for these processes. When not designed correctly, maintenance costs and problems can be annoying. It is imperative to place the due importance and test well during the project phase. Generally, since consultants have admin privileges, they can skip tests with the required roles. Here it is recommended that key users do tests with the relevant role, not as an admin. I will continue to address security-related issues.

Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Segregation of Duties Nedir?

Segregation of Duties görev ayrılığı olarak çevriliyor. Şöyle izah etmeye çalışayım. İki kritik görevi(Duty) aynı kişide toplanmasın istiyorsunuz örneğin fatura işleme ve ödeme çıkma gibi iki görevin aynı kişide olmaması gerekiyor. Binlerce kişinin çalıştığı bir firmadasınız ve bunu takip etmek belli bir aşamada mümkün olmuyor işte tam burada SoD devreye giriyor. Duty üzerinden yaptığınız bir tanım size bu tip durumlar için uyarı veriyor ve kontrol etme imkânı sağlıyor.

Önceki yazılarda kullandığımız güvenlik nesnelerini kullanarak bir örnek yapalım. Security Configuration formunu açıyoruz.

What is Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Segregation of Duties?

Segregation of Duties görev ayrılığı olarak çevriliyor. Let me explain it with an example. Let’s say you want two critical Duties not to be assigned to the same person. For example, two duties such as invoice processing and payment should not be assigned to the same person. You are in a company where thousands of people work and it is not possible to track at a certain stage. Here SoD comes into play. A definition you make through Duty gives you a warning for such situations and allows you to control them.

Let’s see an example using the security objects we used in previous articles. Open the Security Configuration form.

Image-1

From the Segregation of duties tab, click on the Segregation of duties rules button. This form is also available directly on the menu. You can see it in Image-9.

Image-2

There are no records yet in the form that opens. Let’s create one by clicking New.

Image-3

Specify a name and select two Duties. I have chosen two sample Duties. The only thing I pay attention to is, I know which roles these two Duties are used in. I will need it to show the example. Of course, you will make this definition according to your business needs.

Image-4

After saving, it comes to my test user. FD Customer listing task is attached due to its current role. I add a new role and select one that includes Customer Invoicing. When I click add, there is a warning saying that a conflict occurred. If I click Yes, it will create a solution record for me.

Image-5

The record created includes information about this operation. I can accept assignment with the Allow Assignment option.

Image-6

Accepting means overriding the rule, so it asks for an explanation. After providing one, we have added the role. We could have blocked it if we wanted to.

Image-7

When you create a new SoD, you can check if there are anything that does not follow this rule. There is something that doesn’t follow my rule, but since we created an override record it didn’t appear here.

Image-8

You can follow the created records from the menu in Image-9.

Image-9

In this article, I have tried to explain briefly what Segregation of Duties is. Although it is a very nice feature, it still has many deficiencies. For example, it only works with Duty, but there is no solution for direct Privileges assigned to a Role. It asks when adding it to the role, but it does not have a mechanism that controls the changing duty contents afterwards. It is possible to use it. Especially if you do not define authorization other than Duty and create your Duties with the right logic, you can use it very easily. Investments are still being made in this feature, I think it will become much more developed in a short time.

Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Data Management 2. How to Transfer Data Again Using Old Projects?

Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Data Management 1. How to Import Data? Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Data Management 1. How to Import Data? Now I will try to explain how we can transfer data over and over again using the project we created in that article.

We had created a transfer project for VendGroup. Currently, the data is as in Image-1.

Image-1

This is the CSV file I just created. I will use this for import.

Image-2

Open Data managament. In the All projects section, we click on our project and open it.

Image-3

Click Re-import from the Import Options tab.

Image-4

Click Upload file on the page that opens.

Image-5

Select the import file and click Upload. Then click OK.

Image-6

You have uploaded your file. Now you can click Import.

Image-7

The information screen will appear. Close it and wait for a while.

Image-8

If there is no problem, you will see a screen like the one below. If there is an error, you can see its details on this screen as well.

Image-9

I renew my form to see if it really worked and see the data is there.

Image-10

In this article, I tried to show how you can transfer data over and over again through a project that we have created and established before. These very useful features are generally used by consultants, but it is necessary to provide good training to the users and ensure that they benefit from these features.

Regards.

How to Move Developments to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Test and Live Environments? 3- Build

How to Move Developments to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Test and Live Environments? 3- Build

In this article, I will talk about how to perform the Build operation required to move the developments we made from Visual Studio for Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations to Test and Live environments. Build needs to be performed on a certain Branch. When Build is complete, if there is no error, it will generate a Deployable Package for us. We need this package for code migration.

You have to perform Build through Azure DevOps, not from Visual Studio. After logging in as a user with admin rights, open the Pipelines tab. Unified Operations platform – Build Main will be created automatically when you set Azure DevOps settings via LCS. We will take this as basis. Since our environment is only Main Branch, I continue without making any changes in the basic settings.  First let’s see how we can run it, then we will examine the other settings.

Image-1

Click the Edit button from the ellipsis menu.

Image-2

Build steps are listed.

Image-3

If you want to build a different Branch, you need to change the Server path. We are making a change here.

Image-4

You can right click and Disable steps that are not required at this time. I disabled the Deploy Reports step because I do not have a report development.

Image-5

The main step is Build the solution. Our Branch path is here again. If you want to build a different Branch, you should change this as well.

Image-6

Click Queue. Whn you click Run in the popup window, Build operation starts.

Image-7

You can follow the Build steps.

Image-8

If it completes with no errors, it will look like the following. If it gives errors, it is necessary to examine the logs and errors. Generally there are not very complex problems. There are cases such as missing reference, incorrect Check-in, but there may be situations that need to be further examined. You can open it by clicking on the record.

Image-9

When you enter, all your previous Builds will be listed. You can view their status and information. The first record is our last Build, completed without error. Click to open it.

Image-10

You can see details about the Build here. Click and open the relevant part (3 published).

Image-11

Under Packages, Deployable Package starting with AxDeployableRuntime is created. We need to download it from here and upload it to the LCS. I will explain this in my next article.  At this stage, the Build operation is done. Now let’s look at how you can create a new Pipeline.

Image-12

Main Pipelines are created by default. If you want to create them in other Branches, you either make all the definitions manually, which is very demanding, or you can use the Clone or Export features. For both cases, do not forget to change the path settings for the new Pipeline.

Image-13

You can Import the Exported file from the following path again. Generally code is transferred to live environment from Main or Release Branch, and to test environment from Dev Branch. Of course, these are approaches that vary depending on the project and the team.

Image-14

In this article, I tried to explain how Build is triggered through Azure DevOps. A machine is required for Build right now, but we will soon be able to do this thanks to an agent. It will be a faster and inexpensive solution. By completing this stage, we have reached the final stage in code migration. In my next article, I will explain how we deploy code over LCS.

Regards.

How to Add a User to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations?

In this article, I will try to explain how to define new users for Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. If you want to add users to the test and live systems, you usually use import from Azure Active Directory. If you want to create a test user for your development machine, you can create a new user. Let’s take a look at both now.

First, open the System Administration->Users form. You must login as a user with the Admin right. If this is a development environment, the account you used for installation already has this right. I explained it in my previous articles.

Image-1

Click Import users, and the page that opens lists the users we can import. You can import the users you want.

Image-2

An information message appears. Then you need to grant the users the necessary roles. In the old version, there was a role assignment tab during Import. The new version does not have it. I think it was a nice feature. It gets messy especially when I transfer multiple users.

Image-3

Now let’s add a user that is not in Azure Active Directory. For example, I need to do some tests on my own development machine, or consultants need to do the initial tests in VM. Of course, security should be involved in these tests because when I open the application via VS, it opens as Admin and does not have any security restrictions. I need a user to assign the required roles. So I need to create a new user.

I click New and start creating. I enter the user information. I used a Hotmail account. You need to change the Provider according to the account you use.

  1. If it’s an account that’s in its own AAD Domain: https://sts.windows.net
  2. If it’s an account that’s in a different AAD Domain: https://sts.windows.net/XXXXX.XXX, (https://sts.windows.net/emiralfg.com)
  3. If it’s a Microsoft account: https://sts.windows.net/hotmail.com

Image-4

User is created after saving. In Image-4 the Provider is missing. It should be as in Image-5. Add new role by clicking Assign Role. Here you can assign any role you want. You can also have your own roles created for testing. Since I want to use it like Admin, I assigned the role of Admin.

Image-5

I try to open an InPrivate browser, paste the address of the environment, and login with my user.

Image-6

I entered the environment without any problems. Since I logged in from a different environment, a few security steps were required, but it didn’t cause any problems.

Image-7

In this article, I tried to explain how to add users to different environments of Dynamics 365. Security and user management is very important. Many details are available and I plan to mention them in the following articles.

Regards.

How to Publish Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations SSRS Reports?

In this article, I will explain how you can publish SSRS reports (Deploy) for Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations application. It is one of the basic reporting tools of SSRS. You can use it in the reports you want to produce output. After the initial installation or after creating a new report, you need to publish it to see it in the app.

First, open Power Shell as Admin.

Run the following code for your Azure environments. Folder paths may change with updates.

K:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Plugins\AxReportVmRoleStartupTask\DeployAllReportsToSSRS.ps1 -PackageInstallLocation “K:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory”

Run the following code for local environments.

C:\AOSService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Plugins\AxReportVmRoleStartupTask\DeployAllReportsToSSRS.ps1

There may be some warnings, but you can ignore them while waiting for the result.

Image-1

All reports published without any errors.

Image-2

If you want to publish a certain report with Power Shell, you can use the code below.

K:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\Plugins\AxReportVmRoleStartupTask\DeployAllReportsToSSRS.ps1-PackageInstallLocation “K:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory” -Module ApplicationSuite –ReportName .Report

Finally, you can publish a newly created report via Visual Studio as shown in Image-3.

Image-3

In this article I explained how to publish SSRS reports. There are many topics related to reporting. In my following articles, I will talk mostly about reporting features.

How to Import and Update Data to Excel via Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Forms?

In this article, I will explain how to import data from Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations forms into Excel and change them in Excel. Yes, you can change the data through Excel and enter new data. Of course, it may not work the way you want in all situations, but it is quite successful in general. One of the biggest advantages of Microsoft is that all of these systems are integrated.

Let’s have a look at our example. I open the VendGroup form, from which I transferred data in my previous articles.

Image-1

From the form that opens, I click the Office icon and click Vend Group (usmf). If your form has multiple data sources and different structures, you can see several different options here.

Image-2

I click Download to download it to the local machine.

Image-3

There may be warnings due to security settings, you can accept them and continue.

Image-4

I click Trust this add-in, which will appear when you open it for the first time.

Image-5

The home page is opened. Here you must log in as an authorized user.

Image-6

If there is no problem, the form will fill automatically and the menu will appear on the right.

Image-7

I did not correctly provide the Description information in data transfer, so I correct it and send it to the system by clicking Publish.

Image-8

When I refresh the VendGroup form, I see that the updates I made through Excel are applied.

In this article, I explained how you can transfer data to Excel via any form and upload your updates via Excel to the system. Of course, this does not work efficiently for very large data, you need to be careful. It is a feature that will facilitate the daily lives of the users at many points. It would not be wrong to say that the product is used very effectively with the Office applications. It was not that easy before.
