Knowledge Base - iProtect™ Authorizations

In general, iProtect™ is used within an organization by people with diverse functions. Not everyone has the same rights and powers when working with iProtect™. You can define what everyone’s rights are. These rights are often related to the function that someone has. Often there will be several people who have similar rights. For this reason, it was decided not to set the rights per user, but per user group. Once the rights of the different user groups are properly defined, you can grant rights to a new user by assigning the correct user group. Any changes to a user group’s permissions will apply to all users who are part of that user group.

A user group can be described as a group of users of the system who have the same rights to read, enter, change and delete dialogs. After you have placed a person in a certain user group, this person logs into the system with a login name and password, and he or she gets all the rights that have been set for this user group. Certain system settings can still be set per user. It is possible to assign multiple user groups to one person. A different combination of login name and password applies per user group. The rights that the system user has at any given time depend on the login name and password used to log in.

You must also define a menu structure for each user group. This means that you determine which menus and menu options the user group will see and which ones will not. In this way you can also protect certain data from the users. At the same time, this simplifies the view of the program for the users. After all, working with iProtect™ becomes easier if you only see those menus that are necessary for your own work.

You can determine the composition of the taskbar yourself. Omitting menu options from the menu definition shields certain windows from a user group. However, due to the interconnected menu items, it is necessary that certain tables are provided with, for example, read-only rights.

This module also covers defining a Button tableau and assigning a Button tablea to a user group. Via the Shortcuts menu you can control a door or an output with the click of a mouse. In addition, the Shortcut Menu is a useful tool for quickly requesting an attendance report or to start a procedure manually. This greatly facilitates working with iProtect ™ for the reception or surveillance.

Finally, it is possible to have certain windows start automatically when you log in. You can set which windows are for each user group.
