Task-Based Security utilizes Dynamics GP System Security. Administrators must assign users the ability to authorize and/ or approve payments by adding the appropriate Security Roles and Task IDs to an individual’s GP User Security settings.
For your convenience, Mekorma has created six security Role IDs that are tied by default to their corresponding Task IDs. You are not required to use the Mekorma Security Roles/ Task IDs, but it creates one less step if you choose to do so. Otherwise, you must also assign the Task ID you will be using for security setup to a Security Role, which then is assigned to an Approver / Authorizer.
