Password protecting P.SQL 8 database

Password protecting P.SQL 8 database

Password protecting P.SQL 8 database


We have a database that is used primarily in transactional mode.  The software belongs to an external vendor and it's working OK.  We also access the database using the relational engine - that particular software is ours.  We were wondering if we password protected our relational database would it have an impact on the transactional side?

Thanks and regards,

Shouldn't be a problem.  I did a quick smoke test (enabled security then opened a file through the Function Executor) and didn't see any problems.
Obviously, you should fully test before putting something like this into production.
