This article describes how to set up Windows Authentication in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 or later versions.
To set up the Windows Authentication security model in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 or later versions, follow these steps during the database creation process or the database update process:
- Specify the Windows Authentication security model, and then link the administrative user. To do this, follow these steps:
- In the Authentication dialog box, click Windows Authentication, and then click OK.
- In the SYSADMIN Windows User Name box, type the Windows user name that you want to associate with the Microsoft Dynamics SL SYSADMIN user, and then click OK. Type the Microsoft Windows user name in the domain/username format.
- To link new or existing Microsoft Dynamics SL users to Windows users, select one of the following methods.
- Link one user at a time by using the User Maintenance (95.260.00) screen.
- Link many users at the same time by using the User Import (95.300.00) screen.
Note For instructions about how to use the User Import (95.300.00) screen, review the User Import (95.300.00) topic in the Help files.
After you have associated a Windows user name to a Microsoft Dynamics SL user, the user will be able to log on to Microsoft Dynamics SL without a company name or password prompt.Note
After you specify the Windows Authentication security model, you cannot change to the SQL Authentication security model in Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0. In Microsoft Dynamics SL 7.0 Service Pack 1, you can change from the Windows Authentication security model to the SQL Authentication security model in the Database Maintenance (98.290.00)
For more information about the Windows Authentication security model, refer to the SL_install.pdf file that is located on the Microsoft Dynamics SL installation CD.
