I use other applications to access my SQL data, how can Omni Password help? Normally, if you maintain the passwords from within Great Plains SQL versions, the passwords will be stored on the SQL Server encrypted. This adds the ability to give a user access to the accounting system, but not to the data from any other application. If access is required from another application then the passwords must be maintained via SQL Enterprise manager or some other method. Omni Password now offers the ability to maintain the passwords from within the Great Plains application and store the passwords in the SQL Server without encryption. This means you can have all the facilities of Omni Password AND still be able to use the same password from an external application, such as FRx or Crystal Reports.
Note: The option to store passwords without encryption is not available on v9.0 onwards due to the password security changes made in the core application.
