Version Information


TouchWorks System Administration (SA) is an administrative tool which utilizes ODBC connections to access and manage TouchWorks dictionaries. SA is not directly integrated into the application framework so it operates as a standalone application. The ODBC’s required for SA to connect to the Works database must be added and configured using the Data Sources (ODBC) portion of Windows (found in Administrative Tools).

Some of the key dictionaries managed using SA in v10 of TouchWorks are:

In addition to the primary dictionary manager SA also manages:

  • Functional Security (Security Classifications, Security Codes, and Security Gates)
  • The User dictionary – this includes additional attributes not found in the Provider dictionary such as assigned Security Classifications and Organization
  • Enterprise and Internal/External Organization information
  • SA Dictionary auditing functions and reports
