Database Connection Properties

You can login to Workflow Manager using the ArcFM login screen or connect after logging in to ArcFM by clicking the Open Workflow Manager button. You may also log into Workflow Manager using the Process Framework link in the Start menu (Program Files > ArcFM Solution > Process Framework > Process Manager).

If you choose to login separately from ArcFM, you may use this dialog to define your database connection. You will NOT need to do this each time you login.

  1. Click Connection on the Login screen.
  2. In the Database Connection Properties window, select a DBMS Provider. The fields below will change based on your selection.

    The ArcFM Solution supports two types of login authentication: database and operating system. Database authentication requires the user to enter their user name and password when logging into an ArcFM application. Operating system authentication uses the user's Windows login name and password. If you want to use operating system authentication, your Windows user name and password must be valid for the selected Process Framework database. Authentication does not impact Access geodatabases.

  3. Select the "Login using operating system authentication" checkbox if you want to use your Windows login user name and password. This field is disabled if you have an Access database selected.
  4. Fill in the database information as required.
  5. Use the Test button to ensure the data entered is correct. Results appear in the Test Results field.
  6. Click Login to accept changes and login to the database.
  7. Click Cancel to dismiss the window without saving the changes.
