EQuIS Administrator Privileges

The following EQuIS users receive Administrator privileges:

Database-Level Security (DLS) users, i.e. those with direct SQL logins

Active Enterprise users assigned to the Admin role, which is a standard role that comes with Enterprise


An EQuIS administrator is not the same as a database administrator, the latter of which controls the database hosting, SQL logins, and other properties such as DLS permissions. However, a database administrator would also gain EQuIS administrator status through their SQL login.


Note: DLS permissions associated with SQL user accounts or with an administrator's ALS role can curtail administrator privileges. For example, a SQL user with DENY INSERT and DENY UPDATE on ST_REPORT cannot publish reports; the Report Publisher will fail if unable to insert or update report records. In this manner, database administrators can limit SQL users' abilities to perform administrator-only actions.


Any documented instructions to "Run as administrator" refer to Windows administrator privileges, which are also separate and which an EQuIS administrator is not guaranteed to have.
