Last month, I posted an introductory review on Dynamics AX 2012 Security How - To
I went through this book and here's my detailed review:
As the name suggests, this is a practical hand book (running into 77 pages) and which covers on how-to (manage security in Dynamics AX 2012).
a. This book starts by covering the basic concepts about Security Architecture in AX 2012, Application Security Fundamentals, Server Security, Role based security, Custom Authentication and Pluggable Authentication
b. Next, it covers step by step instructions on How to Create a new user, Import users from Active Directory, Setting up user options and user relations
c. It also covers Adding new security roles, assigning users to different roles, adding privileges to an existing role
d. Developing Extensible Data Security policy, Configuring Permissions in AOT
Overall, I would rate this book (3/5) as it's just a basic book showing how to manage security in Dynamics AX 2012. It would have been refreshing if the book covered how-to's looking at a broader perspective like Securing SQL Server Database (for Dynamics AX), SSRS Security and AIF Security. Also, it would have been handy if it highlighted some real time errors/problems faced while implementing security and troubleshooting tips.
