APPLIES TO : Warehouse Management System, MYOB, WMS Users
KEYWORDS: WMS, Server, Permissions
The following support note Outlines the permissions required by Users of the Datapel WMS or Inventory Controller software Application. In general all WMS and Inventory Controller Domain Users must have READ / WRITE / MODIFY permissions to a set of predefined REGISTRY KEYS and FOLDERS/FILES within the software environment. Failure to provide adequate security permissions can cause certain features and functions of the DATAPEL SOLUTION to operate incorrectly or not at all.
This support note should be followed when installing and configuring WMS or updating the version of MYOB Premier and/or the MYOB ODBC driver. All permissions in this support note are needed by all WMS users. This procedure should also be followed or reviewed when setting up NEW DOMAIN USERS.
