The last few months, I did spend a lot of time on speaker sessions for the Summit EMEA, MVP Monday webcast and a coming Dutch Dynamics Community event. In the meantime, it was also extremely busy completing work. One of the topics I talked about recently, is eXtensible Data Security (XDS) in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
There is not that much written related to this XDS topic. You may find two white papers and some blogs posts on this topic. One whitepaper also describes an example how to restrict financial dimension values.
As there is in general not that much knowledge and experience, I decided to share my knowledge in this area on some events and now also using my blogs.
I did create and demo some examples what can be achieved using XDS. During the sessions related to this topic, I promised to share these examples. The examples created do have the next features:
Detailed information how to use these examples and an explanation how they are created will be posted in separate blogs. Watch them coming or come back on this page where the links will be updated. Also, the list with examples might grow in future.
At this moment, I can share the examples based on AX2012 and they reside on my OneDrive. The same features for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations will be added in the future. The location of the code examples might change in future, so ensure to bookmark this page to be able to find the examples anytime. Currently, you can find them on this location: My OneDrive DynamicsShare
If you want to explore these examples, feel free to download and use it. The software is provided as-is and you cannot obtain any rights if something is not working correctly. You have to ensure you will install the examples in a separate environment first and test it carefully. If you have questions or feedback, feel free to add comments or send a message.
That’s all for now. Till next time!
