This article describes how to install and configure the SiPort Service, to enable integration between Smart ID Identity Manager (PRIME) PACS Backend and Physical Access and SiPort.
SiPort is an Access Control System provided by Siemens Software and ODBC Connectivity to interact with SiPort through the ODBC connectivity.
After integration, all administration of Users, Access Token and Entitlements (besides defining them) should be done in Nexus PRIMEIdentity Manager, never in SiPort.
For details on which data can be imported and exported from SiPort, see About import and export to Physical Access.
The following prerequisites apply:

The service is configured in the configuration table in the PACS Backend Physical Access database and in the configuration file. All configuration is cached when the service starts so any configuration changes will require the service to be restarted in order to take effect.
The configuration file is named SiPortService.exe.config.
