I want to add a new user but don't have SQL Server Administrator permissions. What do I do?

If you have the MainBoss Administration security role, you can use Administration | Users to try to add a new user to MainBoss. However, you must also have SQL Server Administration permissions for the operation to succeed. If you don't have these permissions, you'll get the error message

User does not have permission to perform this action.
The statement has been terminated.

Since the problem is that you don't have SQL Server permissions, you can't fix it by giving yourself more MainBoss permissions.

There are several ways to fix the problem.
