Minimum Required Permissions to Run PSIcapture

Permissions for PSIcapture Service


To elevate the PSIcapture Service to run with all the required permissions, follow these steps:

  • Create a login user (for running the PSIcapture service)
  • Grant the permissions to this user as below:
    • NTFS Modify (minimum) permissions to:
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\PSIGEN
        • “Read & Execute” + “List folder contents”
      • C:\ProgramData\PSIGEN
        • Full Control
      • All batch storage locations
        • Full Control
      • All migration output locations
        • Full Control
      • All automation monitored locations
        • Full Control
    • Registry Full Control permissions to:
        • Full Control

Execute the following example commands in an elevated command prompt:

  • netsh.exe http add urlacl url=http://+:47233/BatchManager/ user=<user_name>
  • netsh.exe http add urlacl url=http://+:47233/AutoImport/ user=<user_name>
  • netsh.exe http add urlacl url=http://+:47233/LicenseManager/ user=<user_name>

Grant the “Log on as a service” to the user, other policy settings are left defaults.

There are not any specific permissions on the Batch Manager and Configuration databases granted to the new user via LocalDB

Assign the new user to run the Capture service.


Once the installation process is complete, proceed to Configuring the Service Manager to setup the installation type and begin configuration of PSIcapture in your unique environment.
