The QPR User Management System (UMS) is the user authentication system that is used by QPR products. This system is for the authentication of users, whereas the administering of specific rights to the users is performed separately from within each QPR Windows application (QPR Modeling Client and QPR Metrics).
The QPR Foundation Server stores the user information and the user authentication settings for the system. In the User Management Client, users and user groups can be created and assigned authentication levels to the QPR products.
The exercises in this chapter use the Dentorex - Quality Management System server model, since the User Management System is used.
