Issue

What type of permissions does the SQL account need to run for day to day operations?

 

Solution

Here are the basic requirements, which are followed by details.

• During installation, Kofax Capture (with “Create new database” selected) creates the SQL Server

database. Therefore, the database login provided during installation must be a member of the

db_owner role, and it requires permissions to create a database.

• You can also move to an existing SQL Server database after installation, in which case the database

login does not need permissions to create a database.

• For everyday Kofax Capture use, the database login does not need to be a member of the db_owner role.

• During upgrades and service pack installations, the database login must be a member of the db_owner role.

 

This information can be found in the KC Installation guide under the "Database Permission" section.
