In order for users to access SQL Inventory Manager, you need to grant them access. Additionally, if they want to receive alert emails, you have to enable this option for each user and type the email addresses where they will receive these notifications. 

To edit user details, such as the account name, product access, account role, alert subscriptions, email address, or instance permissions, go to either of the following options on the SQL Inventory Manager Administration tab:

  • Users > Manage Users
  • Alert Emails > Manage Subscriptions For All Users

On this window you can see a list of all registered users, their respective email addresses, and whether they are subscribed to alerts.

Edit User

This option allows you to edit the user name, change the role, modify the user's alert subscriptions, and change the email address to where they receive alerts. To edit a user account:

  1. Either click the user account name, or check the appropriate box for the user account you want to edit, and then click Edit User. SQL Inventory Manager displays the Edit User dialog.
  2. Make the appropriate changes.

  3. In the Access to SQL Server Instances area, select All Instances to allow this account to access all instances including any new instances in your environment. Select Select Specific Instance, and SQL Inventory Manager displays lists of tags and instances available to assign to this user account. Select the items you want to include.

  4. Click SAVE.

    If you have not yet configured your email server settings, SQL Inventory Manager displays the message Email settings have not been configured yet. Click here to configure sending alert emails. Click this option to configure your settings. For more information, go to Configuring your email settings for alert notifications.
