  2. SafeCardID Team

    Hi Karan – version 2009 of Asure ID was replaced by Version 7. Users of version 2009 receive a free upgrade to version 7, which you can obtain directly from the HID Global web-site. As version 2009 is no longer support, we recommend you apply the free upgrade first. THEN you can follow this information for creating and using a SQL database, rather than the default MS Access database:

    Creating a new Native Database (Access, SQL, and Oracle)
    When Asure ID is installed, it will use an Access database. This database stores some configuration tables, as well as template and cardholder data. If using SQL Server or Oracle as the native database, A new native database will need to be created. Your system administrator or DBA will need to execute a set of scripts to create all the database objects needed for Asure ID 7. The application needs to be pointed to the new database. If the database is not found the user will have the option to generate a new database by selecting the required path. With the next startup the new database will be accessed. To install the scripts access the Scripts sub-folder wherever Asure ID is installed.

    Typically installation will be either:

    1. C:\Program Files\HID Global\Asure ID
    2. C:\Program Files (x86)\HID Global\Asure ID).

    There will be two SQL script files:

    1. AsureID_MSSQL.sql (to be used for SQL Server)
    2. AsureID_Oracle.sql (to be used for Oracle)

    Your administrative authority will need to run whichever set of scripts is applicable in the selected database.

    1. Also needed is to create a user that has SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE and CREATE privileges.
