System Permissions Notes

AgilePoint Server Machines

  • Local administrator
  • ServiceLogon
  • Member of the following groups:
    • Administrator
    • Performance Monitor Users
    • adHocAdmin
  • Service Principle Name (SPN)
  • This user account will also be used to initially sign in to AgilePoint NX.
  • If you are installing AgilePoint Server on a Domain Controller, this cannot be a local administrator account.
  • The adHocAdmin group is required for Report Center. You may need to create this group in your environment.

    In most cases, Report Center is installed on the AgilePoint Server machine.

    Note: The Report Center component (sometimes referred to as AgileReports) can only be used by customers who purchased this component before April 1, 2020. This version is no longer available for purchase, including by current and previous purchasers of AgilePoint NX or the Report Center component. In AgilePoint NX v8.0 and higher, Report Center has been replaced with the Analytics Center component.
  • SetSPN is required for Kerberos only. For more information, refer to Set Service Principle Name (SetSPN).

If you are not able to provide these full permissions due to your company's IT policies, the following guidance applies:
