Configuring Permissions For Processing Mobile Documents in Microsoft NAV 2009


For a mobile document to process from the mobile document service to Microsoft Dynamics 2009, there are several permission settings in Microsoft Dynamics 2009 that you must configure. The permission settings vary depending on whether the mobile document service communicates with Microsoft Dynamics 2009 through an Application Server or a Web Service.


Note: For Microsoft Dynamics Mobile 1.5, the required permissions when using Application Server have changed from Microsoft Dynamics Mobile 1.1 and earlier versions.


Using Application Server


To process a mobile document in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 through an Application Server, you must set up permissions in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 on the following accounts:



  • Windows account of the mobile device user

  • Application pool identity that is used by the Mobile Document Service.
    Note: This was not required for Microsoft Dynamics Mobile 1.1 and earlier.

  • Logon account that is used by the Application Server component.
