Database Access Key Distribution

Once you specified the Database Account for your Alloy Navigator database, the Database Management tool generates a Database Access Key. A registered copy of this key must exist on each computer that requires access to the Alloy Navigator database. This means that you must distribute this key to the server computer and technician's workstations having the Desktop App and Settings installed.

There are two ways of Database Access Key distribution: as a .reg file or as an encoded string of characters. Use any of these ways to distribute the key to the server computer and technician's workstations.

For detailed instructions on how to import the Database Access Key, see Importing the Database Access Key.

NOTE: Alloy Navigator servicesClosed (the Automation Server, Web App, Self Service Portal, Mobile App, and the API module) also require the Database Access key to access the Alloy Navigator database. You will import the key when configuring each service.
