Before you start

  • You can check which SIMS user the Assembly Connector uses by running the Assembly Configuration tool from the start menu on the server where you installed the Connector (you should also be able to find it in C:\ProgramData\Assembly). 
  • You will need to click back through the configuration steps - the username will be detailed on the SIMS Credentials section of the configuration tool. 

  • Please note: In order to check and manage user permissions you must have administrator privileges on SIMS.
