About Datgel Security Tool Enterprise

The Datgel Security Tool Enterprise gINT Add-In works with gINT SQL Server databases and allows for User Access Control over the editing and deletion of data, and use of gINT menu commands and Add-In menu commands. It allows the database administrator to build a customisable user interface for gINT based on the needs of particular users, by hiding applications and application groups, table groups, tables and fields. Security configurations can be applied at three levels, project, database and instance. The security objects are linked to Active Directory users and groups or SQL logins. The security definition is made in the web application hosted on a user's server, and controls are applied by a client application.

You need to complete the installation procedure (see Installation and Licensing) and activate the client (see ) before you can use the Security Tool Enterprise.


You are eligible for support and maintenance if the DSM subscription for your license is current. For technical support please email or call +61 2 8202 8600 or +65 6631 9780.
