Introducing this guide

Enterprise Vault, Compliance Accelerator and Discovery Accelerator use database roles that you can use to improve SQL database security.

This document describes how to revoke the SQL database permissions that the Vault Service account does not need, and how to use the database roles to grant only the permissions needed for normal daily operations, and additional permissions when they are required.

The installation and configuration of Enterprise Vault, Compliance Accelerator, or Discovery Accelerator must be complete before you use the procedures in this document.

This document applies to Enterprise Vault 12 and later. For earlier versions of Enterprise Vault, click the following links:
