The Connect ID


The connect ID is used from PeopleTools 8+ and was implemented to replace the need for PeopleSoft to create users in the database.

The connect ID is a valid database user that is used during two-tier (database) signon. So it applies to tools such as application designer and data mover.

If you don't have a connect ID configured in configuration manager or you have the wrong connect password then you will get an invalid access ID and password for signon error EVEN if you use a valid PeopleSoft login (user name and password).

Invalid Access ID and password for signon -- see your security administrator.

Use configuration manager to set the correct Connect ID in the Startup tab:

NOTE: that you can't get the connect password from the configuration file easily as it is encrypted.
