1.3.9.8.1.1. Tabbed page "User databases"

PARTsolutions supports several user databases. One or more of them can be active at a given time. However, only Windows allows for automatic login within the clients. In all other cases, the manual input of the password is mandatory at login time.

In order for Users/Groups to be displayed on the tabbed page Assign rights, on the corresponding tabbed pages, set a checkmark under Active. The sequence of evaluation is according to the sequence of tabs: Windows, then ERP, then the others...

Example: Tabbed page "Windows"

Example: Tabbed page "Windows"

1.3.9.8.1.1.1. Tabbed page "Windows"

By default, the option Active is activated, what makes sense in most cases.

Rights administration via Windows user database activated

Rights administration via Windows user database activated

If it becomes deactivated, in the dialog Database login, for example, the option Use currently logged in operating system user has no effect and the error message Invalid username or password! appears.

"Use currently logged in operating system user" activated

"Use currently logged in operating system user" activated

Invalid username or password!

Invalid username or password!

  • Use global catalog for queries: When using an Active Directory Forest activate this option (default is "off")

  • Limit for queries: Please pay attention that there is no 0 entered here!

    This will happen when removing the checkmark Active for Windows, then terminating PARTadmin, then restarting and then activating the user database "Windows" again.

  • Check for hierarchical group memberships: The check happens recursively through hierarchically superordinated levels.

    [Tip] Tip

    May be also use this setting for testing under tabbed page Assign rights in order to collect all affiliations.

  • Extract group membership from special AD/LDAP attribute:

1.3.9.8.1.1.2. Tabbed page "ERP (plinkusers)"

If in the dialog Database login the manual entry of ERP users shall be possible, the option Active has to be activated (default). In this case, below, under Users/groups , all those users are displayed where a password has been set under ERP environment -> User -> Login-Dialog.

ERP environment -> User -> Login-Dialog : Password set

ERP environment -> User -> Login-Dialog : Password set

If above mentioned preconditions are fulfilled, the database login can happen by user and password.

Database login : User and password entry

When clicking OK the dialog box Select role appears.

In the following cases the error message Invalid username or password! appears at database login
