❑The System Administrator has control over who may access the Sybase SQL Database.
•This is the database that contains all of the information stored in MKMS.
•A person who has been given access to this file is called a System User (User).
❑The access control management role of the System Administrator allows that Administrator to
a)add, delete, and update a User's user name and their associated password
b)assign each User to an Employee Group
•Combined with the Employee Group functionality, User definitions provide complete control of who may see what, enter what, and do what, with the information stored within the MKMS Sybase SQL Database.
•There are three (3) default predefined Users, all of these User Passwords Must Be Changed
✓If you are using the Third Edition UL® 1981 Version of MKMSCS at your Company, see "UL® Password and Username Requirements" below and the "6.2 - Sign-on Security" section in the UL 1981 Third Edition Standard Overview chapter for more information about how to construct a Password.
1.Admin with a password of "admin".
▪Add a new User.
▪Select ADMIN as the Employee and then enter a User Name and Password.
2.Operator with a password of "operator".
▪Add new operator type of Users as needed.
▪For at least one of them, select Operator as the Employee and then enter a User Name and Password.
3.Guest with a password of "guest".
▪Add a new User.
▪Select Guest as the Employee and then enter a User Name and Password.
•You may enter as many User Name and Password combinations for your Company's Employees, as required.
➢Note: Not all Employees will need access to MKMS, so you do not have to assign them access unless they actually require database access as part of their job's responsibilities.
•UL® Password and Username Requirements: As part of properly implementing the Third Edition UL® 1981 Standard, specifically for compliance with section 6.2 Sign-on Security of the Third Edition UL® 1981 Standard:

6.2.6 - The automation system shall prevent:
a)Repeated passwords, used within the last six changes;
b)Passwords that are a derivative of the user name(s); and
▪[e.g., Password cannot contain 50% of a Username so a User "Stacy" cannot have a Password of "STA3841"]
c)Passwords that are simply letters or numbers in order (e.g.: abcd, 1234, etc.).

✓Instead, in the Employee Form, you could simply enter an Ends date using the Drop-Down Calendar/Date Entry field provided which would automatically cancel that Employee's Login access and delete the User record on this Add/Delete Users Form.
