Web Application Requirements (Master Data Services)

Master Data Manager is a Web application hosted by Internet Information Services (IIS).

NoteNote

Master Data Manager works best when viewed in Internet Explorer (IE) 7 or 8. If you use IE 8, enable compatibility view by clicking Tools > Compatibility View. IE 6 is not supported.

Use Master Data Services Configuration Manager to create and configure the Master Data Manager Web application. Master Data Services Configuration Manager configures IIS on the local computer, so use it when you initially configure Master Data Services. For example, configure a Master Data Services environment with a single Master Data Manager Web application, or configure the first Web application in a scale-out deployment of Master Data Services. Use IIS tools to perform more complex tasks, such as configuring multiple Web servers in a scale-out deployment.

Description

Windows account

You must log on to the Web server computer with a Windows account that has permission to configure Windows roles, role services, and features, and to create and manage application pools, Web sites, and Web applications in IIS on the local computer.

Service account

When you create the Master Data Manager Web application in Master Data Services Configuration Manager, you must specify an identity for the application pool that the application runs in. This account should be the same account specified as the service account when the Master Data Services database was created.

This identity must be a domain user account, and it is added to the mds_exec database role in the Master Data Services database for database access. For more information, see Database Logins, Users, and Roles (Master Data Services). This account is also added to a Master Data Services Windows group, MDS_ServiceAccounts, which is granted permission to the temporary compilation directory, MDSTempDir, in the file system. For more information, see Folder and File Permissions (Master Data Services).
