Microsoft® Provisioning Framework (MPF) has four types of Microsoft® SQL Server databases:
- MPFAudit, the audit log that stores historical transaction data for performance analysis and other reporting purposes
- MPFConfig, the configuration database that stores run-time properties for provisioning components, namespace definitions for providers and procedures, and user credentials
- MPFTranLogData, the transaction log that stores the real-time state of all executing transactions running in provisioning engines
- ResourceManager, the Resource Manager database that stores resource management configuration data for resources and consumers, as well as transaction handling data
In SQL, permissions to select (read) and write to database tables and stored procedures is granted by role. Databases typically have multiple roles to support users with different sets of access permissions. To access an MPF database, the calling user must satisfy two conditions:
- The user must be a member of a group assigned to a database role.
- The role must have permission to access the necessary tables and/or stored procedures.
Groups are assigned to roles using SQL Enterprise Manager. The following table lists the default MPF database roles, the databases they are associated with, and the groups assigned to the role. However, using Enterprise Manager, you can change the roles for a database as well as the members and permissions for a role.
Roles Databases Permissions Groups MPFAdminRole All Full permissions to all tables and stored procedures MPFAdmins MPFAuditorRole MPFAudit Read (select) access to audit data MPFAuditors MPFServiceRole All Write access to the MPFAudit and MPFTranLogData database and read access to MPFConfig to fetch stored procedures and configuration properties
Note To successfully execute the Custom Audit::Audit procedure against MPFAudit, MPFServiceRole must have write permissions for any tables and stored procedures updated by the SQL commands.
