Microsoft Dynamics GP Permission Errors Running Reports After Upgrading to GP 2018 & GP 2016

By - May 22, 2021

You’ve just recently upgraded Dynamics GP, and when running a report, you receive the error:

“Not privileged to run this report”.  See the example below of permissions error while importing a budget:

These errors occur because new Security Roles and/or Tasks have been added with the new release, but Dynamics GP is not automatically updated with the new Security Role or Task.  Microsoft has provided a script that you can run to update your system with the new Security Roles and Tasks.  Check out the links below to some blog posts that reference this issue in more detail for both Dynamics GP 2018 and 2016.
