This mini-portal is very useful and we hope you like it!

I've had recently a couple of requests about Security information in Snow.

After providing the specific user guides and getting a good feedback about their content (no doubts about it! ), I thought they could be useful for the SnowGlobe community too.

Below you can find the direct permalinks, so you can reach the documents easily without searching in the full Knowledge Base.

 

Technical Description: Security Considerations in Snow License Manager 9

 

Technical Description: Security Considerations for Snow Analytics

 

Technical Description: Security in Snow Inventory for Snow Inventory 5

 

Technical Description: Security Considerations for Snow Inventory 6

 

User Guide: Federated authentication with SAML for Snow License Manager 9

 

User Guide: Federated Authentication with SAML - Update revision 8.3

 

I hope you find them useful!

Hello SnowGlobe,

we often receive requests about or minimum requirements to build a well structured and sized Snow environment, such as operating system, database, disk space, memory, etc.

We have created a System Requirements document that is constantly kept updated by our R&D team.

 

This is the permalink, so R&D will always post here the most recent version: 

Snow System Requirements - System requirements for all Snow products

 

Add it to your bookmarks!
