Profile Manager

Dockit SharePoint Manager creates a user profile in Windows Stored Usernames and Passwords applet, in order to store the SQL and Directory Server user context for report generation.

The stored user profile will be useful for generating reports using Dockit SharePoint Manager under the following scenarios:

  • Using an SQL Server having a dedicated SQL user account for report generation using Dockit SharePoint Manager (highly recommended)
  • Using an SQL Server where SQL authentication mode is enabled
  • Using an SQL Server that is not part of the SharePoint domain
  • Using an alternate user account (other than currently logged on user) to connect to the Directory Server to retrieve AD information

The stored user profile persists for all subsequent logon sessions on the same computer where Dockit SharePoint Manager is installed. The stored user profiles are visible to the application under other logon sessions on the same computer.

The stored user profile created by Dockit SharePoint Manager is restricted to the Windows User Profile context. If the Windows User Profile is maintained locally, Dockit SharePoint Manager stored user profile is accessible only by the same user in the same computer. If the user who creates Dockit SharePoint Manager stored user profile, has a Roaming user account in the enterprise, the Dockit SharePoint Manager stored user profile can be accessed by the same user in any computer in the Windows enterprise.

The stored user profile is a generic credential of Windows Stored Usernames and Passwords applet and can be used by Dockit SharePoint Manager application only. The credential information is stored securely in an 256 bit encrypted format in Windows Stored Usernames and Passwords applet.

The stored user profile corresponding to the SQL user account will be used by Dockit SharePoint Manager application in order to connect to the SQL Server, if SQL authentication is enabled in Dockit SharePoint Manager SQL settings.

The stored user profile corresponding to the Directory Server user account will be used by Dockit SharePoint Manager application in order to connect to the Directory Server, if connect using option is enabled in Dockit SharePoint Manager Directory Server settings.
