This field cannot be secured - on managed solution import RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have 2 crm online environments, one for building my solution and one for importing and testing as a managed solution. Everything was working fine until I tried to add some security to a custom entity. I have removed the solution from the test environment rather than trying to update it.

    I'm getting the error 'This field cannot be secured' which is shown against the entity in the import log rather than a field. I have one field secured as it contains a password.

    If I remove the field level security and import the solution it makes no difference and still fails...

    I have changed the Managed Properties to false for the entity, fields and forms.

    Changing the entity level Managed Properties solves the issue.

    Presumably I am missing some understanding of these security settings and how they need to be configured to allow the solution to be imported and still secured. What am I leaving the entity open to by changing the entity level customisation options to all true?
