NAV Classic & RTC - How to Add Users in Database.

Hi all,

I know most of us know this but its a post for the New Consultants.

This post is based on requirement of one of my friend +Shrikant Sharma

In this post we will see How to Add Users  in the Database, so if you know how to do you can skip the post.

Let's start.

Till NAV 2009 R2 Navision used to support both types of Login -

a) Database Login. (SQL Login)

b) Windows Login. (Active Directory Account)

Till NAV 2009 R2 the option to add user was available in Classic Client. Below are the screens about how to add users.

For adding users in database - 

1. Open database in classic client.

2. Open Tools and from Security Select Type of Login you want to add - Database or Windows Login.

3. If you are trying to add a database login, make sure its already added in SQL Server. Add the user Name in the Database Login as shown below.

4.  If you are trying to add a Windows (Active Directory) Login, provide the complete User Name with Domain in the window Login as shown below.

5. After Completing Step 3 OR/AND 4 Provide a Role to user as shown below.

6. After adding Role Synchronize the users as shown below.

In Navision 2013 Database Login are no more supported. So we can add the windows (Active Directory) Account only. 

Please find below the steps of adding Users in NAV 2013 R2 Database, steps remain same for NAV 2013 also.

1. Open Windows (Role Tailored) Client.

2. Navigate to Departments --> Administration --> IT Administration --> General and open Users from the List as shown below.

3. In the List Page Select New from Left Hand Menu.

4. In Windows Authentication Tab, Enter the Complete User name with Domain Name as shown below.

5. Click Tab and all other details will automatically be filled in, otherwise select the domain and user from the drill down list.

6. From User permission set, select the permission that you want to assign to the user and click OK.

Now you are good to go.

I hope it will help some of the consultants who still don't know how to add users in the database.
