One of the components of the installation of Assure Suite is the Hybrid Connector; this is what allows the Fastpath Assure portal to communicate with the on-premise Dynamics GP databases. Before we can install the Hybrid Connector, we need to create the SQL login which it will use to connect and provide the required permissions.
Fortunately, Fastpath provide a GPHybRidGrants.sql script which both creates the login and assigns the minimum level of permissions required for the Hybrid Connector to connect. The script is available via a link on one of the emails sent by Fastpath.

- dbreplace which is the GP system database (called
- userreplace which is the SQL login to be created.
- pwdreplace which is the password for the SQL login.
Once the script has been run, the Hybrid Connector can be installed which I will be doing in the next post.

Identity Manager is a simple install. One of the files we downloaded, was the Fastpath.ActiveDirectiory.Installer.exe. This is the AD Connector which allows the Fastpath Assure portal to talk to your Active Directory.
Launch this installer and click Next on the Welcome step:

On the last stage of installing TortoiseGit had the run First Start Wizard marked. When the First Start Wizard launches, select your language and click Next:
