Improvements

  • SMS Operators are now assigned the minimum SQL permissions required based on the SMS applications that their security group is assigned.
  • Elevated permissions are required for the following applications/functions: System Security, System Manager, UDF Editor and Report Launcher – Restore Archives. See the respective chapters in the SMS Software Manual for the elevated permissions which will be assigned.
  • Operators without access to the above will only be granted the db_datareader and db_datawriter roles for the SMS database.
  • SMS Operators in Administrators security group are also granted the role db_owner for the SMS database.
  • The SMSAdmin account is now assigned the minimum SQL permissions required instead of sysadmin: the SQL Server Roles dbcreator, bulkadmin and diskadmin; the SQL Server permission “Alter Any Login” and the Database Role db_owner for the SMS database.
  • SMSAdmin is used in the SMS context when no Operator is logged into SMS (i.e. start-up applications).
  • Elevate or demote Operator permissions as required depending on the SMS applications available to the Security Group as Operator Security Group assignments are updated.
  • Elevate or demote Operator permissions as required depending on the SMS applications available to the Security Group are updated/changed.
  • Add Login Requirements option “Hide Single Signon Login checkbox”.
  • Pass “Hide Single Signon Login checkbox” Login Requirement to Launcher.
  • Reject Single Signon with password if “Hide Single Signon Login checkbox” enabled.
  • Hide Single Signon Login checkbox based on Login Requirements.
  • Hide Change Password Login checkbox when Single Signon is enabled.
  • Database Maintenance functions will now be performed by a new Database Maintenance Windows service running on the SP host instead of SQL Agent or Windows Task jobs to reduce required SQL permissions. The service account for the Windows Service requires the SMS database role db_owner and the server roles dbcreator and diskadmin.

Fixes
