Acumatica Cloud ERP Tip: User Security Access Rights by Role and by Screen

Acumatica Cloud ERP Tip: User Security Access Rights by Role and by Screen

Acumatica Cloud ERP Consultant Reviews How to Set up User Security Access Rights by Role and by Screen

When it comes to the security of your business' most sensitive information, Acumatica steps up to high standards with role, screen and even field level control over access rights. We hope this blog helps you more piece of mind in your business. When you consider the risks, it's well worth it to take the time to get more granular by setting up restrictions and plug up and security holes. Here are the steps to set up access rights by role and by screen.  Properly setting up user security goes a long way to avoid potential trouble in the future.   

If you have any questions about setting up user security in Acumatica or other Acumatica related questions, it's recommended that you reach out to your Acumatica Cloud ERP consultant. If you do not currently work with a consultant, contact us and our WAC Consulting ERP experts will be happy to help. 

Simple Steps to Setting Up Rights by Role and by Screen

Setting up access by Role simplifies the addition of new users, by associating the account with a Role.

Example: Setting up a new Role: Accounting Clerk with access to Accounts receivable and General Ledger

Add a new Role by going to Configuration>User Roles>Add a Role

 

Then, go to:

Configuration >User Security>Access Rights by Role

Pick the Suite that you wish to set:

Revoking an Application will remove the entry from the user’s menu. Granting will allow further drill down.

Example: The Accounting Clerk Role was Granted access to Accounts Receivable. Drilling down to the Work Area, Processes, Reports, and Configuration it is possible to control access down to a process itself.

Setting up access by screen:

Select the process. You can control access to a user’s role at the process level

Default Access Right of a screen is “Inherited” It can be changed to “Revoked”, “Edit”, “View Only”
