What’s new

Column permissions support for Web API

Table permissions are used to apply security in portals to individual Dataverse table records. You can add column permissions to individual table columns. Column permissions are an optional configuration that are associated with web roles.

When evaluating the permissions, table permissions are evaluated first. If a user has access to table then respective table’s column permissions will be applied. If the user doesn’t have access to table, then any column permissions configuration will be ignored.

Column permissions are optional configuration, and if it is not defined, then related table permission will be applied to all the columns.

To learn more about Column permissions, see the documentation.

Column Permission Profiles


This feature requires the following versions for starter portal package and portal version:

  • Portal host version 9.4.1.x or later.
  • Starter portal package version 9.3.2201.x or later.

We are looking forward to your feedback

Your feedback will help us continue to build on and improve the capabilities of this feature. We want to hear from you!
