Username for read accessAn optional database user with read-only access to all tables and views of the specified database. This user is used to perform actions that require read-only access, such as running reports.

Accessing the database with a read-only user also has a positive impact on performance.

If your DBMS is Microsoft SQL Server, Silk Central will automatically create this user when you provide a name and password. If your DBMS is Oracle, the user must be created by the database administrator in Oracle and added by the Silk Central administrator in Silk Central.
