Each ledger account could have a posting restriction control per user. Controllers may require that some certain users are allowed to post transactions on some accounts and he/she need this control point from the application in order to prevent any transaction occurred on the account by another users.
MS Dynamics AX offers a very decent control on ledger accounts regarding posting by users, the Application Consultant and Controller working together during design phase to identify which accounts will apply the user posting control setup on it.
The validation list options:-
|Optional||Entry of a dimension value is optional; whether accountant select value or not|
|To be filled in||Entry of a dimension value is mandatory; accountant must select any value if not selected the transaction will not be posted That requires accountant to select proper value for transaction (it may leads to misleading information if the accountant is not accurate in his selection)|
|Table||Set dimension value to be specific on ledger account and accountant could not select any other value except that value|
|List||The accountant only can select a dimension from dimension list table|
During the transaction execution, if an accountant need to post transaction on account he/she not in the authorized list the infolog will popup “You are not authorized to use account #####″
