Account group

Last Updated: Jun 07, 2019

This section describes the operations related to account groups in DMS.

Prerequisites

  • You have access permissions to DMS and you have logged on to the DMS console.

Account group

  • Account groups are introduced to enhance the security of databases. This feature prevents staff from directly accessing database account and password information and makes it easy to maintain database security when a staff member leaves.
    • Account groups allow you to maintain logon information by database type. You can grant an account group to user A so that this user can only log on to the database with the assigned account group instead of manually entering the account name and password.
    • This feature effectively enhances database security. When database logon information changes, the database administrator only needs to modify the corresponding account group. Users do not need to be informed of the change as they have no direct access to logon information.
    • You can create multiple account groups for different users to access the same type of database or the same database instance.
