When opening the new Dynamics AX client, you see that we have a nice set of navigation menus and options in the top of the screen.
But if you would like to limit the navigation options for the user, try to add the “&limitednav=true” to the URL.
As you see, the menu-bar is then changed, and the user cannot see the menu buttons, search and settings any more. We have a limited navigation.
Let’s further extend this ability by also adding the “&mi=action:WHSWorkExecute“. For those that have not heard what WHSWorkExecute is, it is the form used for simulating a Warehouse Mobile Device. The form existed in AX 2012, and it also exists in AX 7.
In the AX ‘7’ preview demo environment try the URL:
You then have a quite nice RF device without the navigation options. Simple can often be the best J

When you navigate to WHSWorkExecute, when a non-admin does this, an error shows up: ”
You are unable to navigate directly to this menu item whsworkexecute”.
I am assuming this only works for administrators on this particular menu item, since it’s building a form on the fly, based on setup?
Hi Erik, you need to set Allow Root Navigation property to YES of the WHSWorkExecute menu item in order to access it from a non-admin user.
