Toad Intelligence Central 4.3 - Quick Start Guide

Alter Authentication

Use the Alter Authentication dialog to set your personal authentication key, to update keys when your remote data source password changes, or to change authentication key type for a view.

You can use the Alter Authentication dialog to perform the following tasks:

  • To set your personal authentication key—You are required to authenticate the first time you attempt to download a view that was published with a personal key. Enter your personal login credentials to access the remote source.
  • To change your personal authentication key password—If your password changed for a remote data source, you must also change the password in your authentication key.
  • To change a shared key password—If the password changed for the shared account in the remote data source, you must also change the password for the shared authentication key. Users with Manage privileges can modify a shared key.
  • To change personal key to shared key— Change the type of key applied to an object from personal to shared. All personal keys are removed. Users with Manage privileges to the object can change the authentication key type.
  • To change shared key to personal key— Change the type of key applied to an object from shared to personal. After the personal key is applied, users with which the object is shared are required o set a personal key by providing personal login credentials to the remote source. Users with Manage privileges to the object can change the authentication key type.

    Note: This action is not available for snapshots. You can apply only a shared key to a snapshot.

To modify Authentication

  1. In the Web interface (Web server), select the Home page.
  2. Select an object to display object details.
  3. In the Details pane, click the link in the Source field. If the object has multiple data sources, multiple links are displayed. Select a link to open the Alter Authentication dialog.
  4. In the Alter Authentication dialog, select the data source for which you want to modify authentication.
  5. (Views) To set your personal key, enter your login credentials for the remote data source.
  6. If you are updating your password, enter the new password.
  7. (Views) To change a personal key to a shared key, select Share authentication.
  8. (Views) To change a shared key to a personal key, clear the Share authentication check box.

    Note: This option is not available for snapshots. You can apply only a shared key to a snapshot.

  9. (Views) Apply this to other view objects for this source that need authentication—If setting your personal key, select this option to apply these credentials to other views sourced from this data source with a personal key that also require authentication.

    TIP: If your password changed for a remote data source, you must also change the password in your personal authentication keys. If you are using the Alter Authentication dialog to change a personal authentication key password, select this option to apply the change to all applicable views.

    Specify this option separately for each data source in the drop-down list.

    Note: This option is disabled for a shared key.

Send Email from Details

You can send an email to a user by clicking the user's name when it is displayed in the Details pane. A user name can be displayed in one or more fields in the Details pane.

  1. In the Details pane, click a user name displayed in one of the fields, such as Publisher, Updated, Visibility, or Managers.
  2. This action opens an email pre-populated with the user’s address and the object name. Add a message and additional information before sending the email.

 

Modify Execution Schedule

You can modify the execution schedule for a snapshot or an Automation script through the Web interface (Web Server). The object owner or a user with Manage privileges can modify a schedule.

To modify the schedule for a snapshot or Automation script

  1. In the Web interface, click Home.
  2. Select an object to display object details.
  3. In the Details pane, click Schedule to open the Alter Schedule dialog.
  4. (Automation script) To execute the script immediately, select the Execute once at option.
  5. ( Snapshot and Automation script) To schedule a recurring execution, select a frequency and a start date.
    • To schedule more than one execution within one day, select Other and specify a frequency.
  6. (Automation script) To disable the script, select Disable this scheduled automation.

 

Alter Script Credentials

An Automation script running in Intelligence Central runs under a specified user account. Initially, this run account is specified at the time the script is published. After the script is published, you can use the Alter Credentials dialog to perform the following tasks:

  • Change the account under which the script runs
  • Change the password for the current run account

Only users with the Administrator role or with Manage privileges to the Automation script can change the account under which the script runs.

Alter Automation script user account

  1. In the Web interface, click Home.
  2. Select an Automation script to display object details.
  3. In the Details pane, click Credentials to open the Alter Credentials dialog. Select one of the following:
    • Specify user to execute automation script—Select to specify a Windows user account. Then enter account credentials.
    • Use default user to execute automation script—Select to use the default user account, which is the account under which the Toad Intelligence Central App Server is currently running.

      For best results when using the default user (App Server) account to run scripts, give this account all the necessary permissions to successfully execute the scripts. Normally, the Intelligence Central App Server uses the server's Local System user account.

    To limit the script run time, enter a maximum run time in Script execution limit.

  4. If you want to change the password for the current run account (if Windows user account), enter the new password and click Save. This action updates the password for each script that runs under this user account.
