Issue with revoking SysAdmin role via OData in D365FO          

On Alex Meyer's Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Blog, Meyer wrote that he recently ran into an interesting issue with OData (Open Data Protocol).

He explained that one of his company's tools relied on D365FO data entities to manage user and user role assignments:

To perform the assignment and revoking of roles we have been using the SecurityUserRole and SecurityUserRoleOrganization data entities within D365FO, these entities use the OData protocol to allow for CRUD operations on D365FO data.

Meyer showed what granting of a role and revoking a role would look like. He noted that they work in every case except when you try to revoke the SysAdmin role from a user. He then provided the solution to this issue.
