What are my security options in FTMaintenance for user and group policy?
FTMaintenance logins are managed through SQL Server. By default, FTMaintenance generates 5 roles in SQL Server. A FTMaintenance login must be a member of one of these roles. The roles consist of:
Both SQL authentication and Windows Authentication, also known as Active Directory Authentication, is supported in the full version of FTMaintenance. In the Lite edition of FTMaintenance, only SQL authentication is supported.
FTMaintenance provides a user interface (Group Rights) so that a member of the MAINTENANCE MANAGER role can add names and passwords to the SQL server, and apply rights to the 5 roles. The user names and passwords that are being setup are stored in Microsoft SQL Server and enable the users to access the FTMaintenance database.
If you choose to support Windows authentication, Windows and SQL logins are setup through a free Microsoft tool, such as SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Once the logins are setup and rights are applied, users may log into FTMaintenance. FTMaintenance provides a user interface for users to enter their credentials. These credentials are passed to SQL Server for authentication before access is granted.
