Security Manager allows AppManager administrators to control access to views and tasks in the Operator Console and manages application or computer-specific security information, such as SNMP community strings and passwords. Depending on your access rights and your SQL Server security setting, you can use Security Manager to identify SQL Server users who have permission to use AppManager, add new SQL Server users, assign roles to AppManager users, and manage user rights. For more information about SQL Server security settings and accounts, see the Administrator Guide for AppManager, available on the AppManager Documentation page.
To use Security Manager for the first time, you must have at least one SQL Server login or Windows user account with permission to access SQL Server and the QDB. You can use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to verify the authentication type and whether the account has permission to access SQL Server databases. Once you configure at least one Windows or SQL Server account for logging in to the QDB the first time, you can use Security Manager to grant other SQL Server login accounts access to AppManager.
To start Security Manager the first time:
