How do I grant SQL table rights?
After creating or converting SQL tables and/or stored procedures, rights must be granted to make these tables and/or procedures available to the SQL users. Microsoft Dynamics GP creates and uses a Microsoft SQL Server group DYNGRP to manage table rights. Depending on your setup, all Microsoft Dynamics GP users will automatically be made a member of this group. DynamicZip automatically grants the DYNGRP full rights to DynamicZip tables when they are created. However, on occasion the rights fail to be granted. In these cases, the simplest solution is to run the Grant.sql procedure.
To grant the DynamicZip table rights to DYNGRP:
- Open the SQL Server Management Studio. The icon should be included in the Microsoft SQL Server Group. Start » Apps » Microsoft SQL Server » SQL Server Management Studio.
- Select File > Open > File and browse to the file named Grant.sql. This file can be found in the SQL\UTIL folder inside the Dynamics GP installation folder. For example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2018\SQL\Util
- Select the system database from the database (DB) list. (The default name for the system database is DYNAMICS.)
- Click Execute Query to run the script for the selected database. A message in the lower part of the window will let you know it was completed successfully.
- Select any company database from the DB list. For example, select TWO.
- Click Execute Query to run the script for the selected database.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 for all company databases making sure to click Execute Query for each database.
IMPORTANT: This statement needs to be run against each of your company databases as well as your DYNAMICS system database.
Granting permissions to SQL Tables must be completed either by sa or a user with SQL Administrative rights. This procedure will only grant rights to existing tables and stored procedures. You must create the tables before running this procedure. If you drop and recreate the tables, or if you recreate stored procedures, you may need to run this procedure again.
