Component Security - Security Settings won't open

Ignition 8.1.20
Windows 10 Enterprise

When I right click on a component, click Security,

I don't get the 'Security Settings' window that I see in the Ignition 8.1 User manual located [here]

(Component and Window Security - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation)

Am I missing a setting on the gateway to allow component security to be used?

Are you able to select security in the tab menu under the Property Editor?


I would try View → Reset Panels

If that doesn’t work maybe try deleting .ignition folder and restart the designer. It isn’t a bad idea to backup .ignition folder.

I am having the same issue. Has there been a resolution to this problem?

I had the same issue. I click the panel chooser, reset panels, click again on the panel chooser, security settings and it shows up

That fixed it for me. Thank you!!
