AX2012 EP Security Permissions UserControl

I had this problem when trying to publish a user control for a given set of users. While the link for the new functionality was available, the user control was no displayed on clicking the link.

I realized the the issues is related with the permissions required to UserControl but how does one give permissions to a user control?

We have a privilege object that is used to give permissions to object however there is no option to associate a user control in a privilege.

The solution is to use the corresponding ManagedControl instead of the user control, in the permissions object.
