Required database information for Human-Bot Collaboration Server installation

When you install the Human-Bot Collaboration Server, you are prompted to provide information specific to the database type you are using. The following table summarizes the required information for the Microsoft SQL Server database:

Item Required information
Database (Microsoft SQL Server) authentication Provide credentials for a Microsoft SQL Server user who has permission to connect to the database.
Database names Database names cannot be blank, so include spaces, or include a percent (%) character. Restrict the names to alphanumerical values, period (.), dash (-), and underscore (_).
Database port Default: 1433
Secure connection (optional) and certificate Provide a CA certificate. Ensure that the certificate host name and database connection are the same.
Service credentials Provide a local system account or domain user account. This is the assigned user for the created databases and tables. The preferred method is to use the domain user account.

Provide the user with system administrator or database creator permission to create databases during installation.

Windows authentication If a test database is available, use the default (user-provided) credentials that is used to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server. If a database is not available, create one and set db_owner to the service account user.
