Re: Does Prognosis need to use "administrator" Windows login to login into Prognosis?

Good question. Generally Prognosis should not need to use "administrator" Windows login and any normal user Windows login should be OK to login into Prognosis. However it does depend on how Prognosis is set up. Here are some pointers for how to manage it.

 

Authentication into Prognosis interfaces (Web UI, thick Client) is by a Windows login account. Prognosis passes the login request to the underlying Windows environment that the Prognosis server is in.
Out of box this is:

  • A local user on the Windows server or an Active Directory domain user. However Prognosis can also be set up to use LDAP or ADFS (for Web UI single sign on) instead.
  • Allowed for all Windows login accounts. However Prognosis can be set up to allow only specific groups using the AllowedGroup in the prgnini.ini on the Prognosis server.

Note, after successful login authentication, there are Access control mechanisms.

  • Out of box Access control allows all user logins to access all views and features but this can be restricted using the Prognosis SECURITY configuration, and using the Role Based Security in Web UI.

I hope this helps but I also recommend the following online documentation that provides more details about Authentication and Access control:
