What's New

Every 2 weeks we update our Authorization Box with new features and bug fixes. On this page you have an overview of all updates based on our release notes.

All release notes are grouped below.

The Authorization Box was updated on Wednesday morning February 17. Below you will find the most important points:

Create NAV UP user via authorization request:
Creating a new user via an authorization request resulted in an error. This has been fixed.

Permission set object types:
Objects of type 14 and 15 can be linked to a permission set. Previously, this gave problems. This has been resolved.

Delete authorization request:
Authorization requests created through the import could not be deleted from the authorization request. The system reported that you were not authorized. This has been adjusted so that these new authorization requests can still be deleted.

Missing Dynamics User Message:
The system gave a message if the system could not synchronize a user because they are not present in Dynamics/BC. This notification was unnecessary and will no longer be sent.

Processing to Dynamics/BC:
With the February 2 release, processing to Dynamics/BC is performed in the background. In some situations this processing could take a lot of time. This has been optimized so that the data must be processed within minutes. You can see the status of this in the synchronization log under menu user management.

The Authorization Box was updated on Tuesday morning February 2. Below you will find the most important points:

Processing authorizations to Dynamics / BC:
When processing an authorization request, the permission sets associated with an organization role are also assigned to the user in Dynamics / BC. In the new situation, this processing is performed in the background. It is therefore possible that the result is not immediately visible in the Authorization Box. If changes have been processed, the system creates a synchronization log record. This shows the basis on which the synchronization took place (for example an authorization request) and for which user this was done.

Delete Authorization Request:
In the authorization requests list, the delete option is only available if the request has the status New or Canceled. It is also possible to delete the authorization request itself if it has the status New or Canceled.

Message when company group is deleted:
A business group can only be deleted if it is not in use. The system will check this and indicate in the message why the company group cannot be deleted.

Message when deleting permission set group:
A permission set group can only be deleted if it is not in use. The system will check for this and indicate in the message why the permission set group cannot be deleted.

Error removing objects from critical privilege:
When removing objects from a critical privilege, the system returned an error. The problem has been resolved.

The Authorization Box was updated on Tuesday morning, January 19. Below you will find the most important points:

Error message in “harmonica” after activating / deactivating user:
When a user was activated / deactivated, an error message was displayed in the processed authorization requests under the “harmonica” Organization Roles. This has been resolved.

The mail and notification that people receive after approving an Authorization request have now been adjusted.

Incorrect review screen, Conflicting Permissions:

Error message when cancelling authorization request:

No notification after import from organization chart:
As soon as the import of permissions per organization role or users per organization role has been processed, the system must provide a notification. This did not happen. The problem is solved.

Reject approval request:
Under the function profile of the Controller, an approval request could be rejected. However, this gave an authorization notice. The right has been added to the function profile.

Profile ID in request for approval:
An incorrect profile ID was displayed in the approval request. The problem has been resolved.

Dynamics change log entries:
Within the analysis results, the column “No. of change log entries” has been added. This information can be important for analysis results at user level. It indicates whether the user has made changes to the analyzed data in Dynamics. The functionality itself was already available in the Authorization Box and is now shown in more places.

The Authorization Box was updated on Tuesday morning December 1. Below you will find the most important points:
