Introduction:

In this blog, we’ll see the ‘UserName’ authentication in Dynamics NAV. It is used when we want to use the existing Windows User and has a password associated with it. This method is preferred when two or more users use the same machine and require a simple password security so that only they can access their account.

Prerequisite:

Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Procedure:

  1. Create a User in Windows Client by going to Administration > IT Administration > General or by typing Users in Search.

  2. Create a NAV Server Instance from Administration with Credential Type as ‘UserName’.

  3. Change the ClientUserSettings ‘C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\100\ClientUserSettings ‘

    Give the Server, ClientServicesPort, Server Instance & ClientServicesCredentialType.

  4. Open the Windows Client and enter the credentials.
