Permission for installing LEAPWORK (Studio, Controller or Agent)
You must have full administrative access to the Windows computer you wish to install or upgrade LEAPWORK on. Full administrative privileges are essential because installation requires access to the Windows registry and Windows System folders.
If you are trying to install software on a computer in a corporate or networked Windows environment but do not have the necessary privileges, you will need to contact your system administrator to install the software for you. These rights are not required to run LEAPWORK once it is properly installed.
SQL Database Permission Required to Setup the Enterprise Edition
As a first action, LEAPWORK creates a database and tables in MS-SQL after connecting to it, so its essential to use MS-SQL server during the installation phase. The database user must have the dbcreator role in MS-SQL. Members of the dbcreator fixed server role can create, alter, drop, and restore any database.
Once the database and tables are created and/or migration is completed, dbcreator access from MS-SQL server can be removed.
