In Identity there are two option Custom & Application pool

Hi, can you please tell me what is this Custom account when installing the Orchestrator.
What is this Custom Account and what is this Username and Password for? Is it window credentials or other?

If I select the Application then it ask me to give the SQL Configuration. @Palaniyappan

  • Application Pool Identity - runs the Orchestrator website under the default identity of the application pool.
  • Custom account - runs the Orchestrator website under an existing Windows or Domain identity. Selecting this option displays two fields, Username and Password , which enable you to specify the identity under which to run.

Kindly have a view on this thread for more information

Hi Palaniyappan

Does it mean that we have to create a custom user for Orchestrator? if we want to use custom Account.
If yes do you know which roles should this user have?

Thanks in advance
Best regards,
