Gateway Password Reset

Is there a way to disable the reset to the default admin username password for the GUI?

You’re talking about in the little GCU utility?

Oops sorry Yes…GCU.

No, you can’t disable that.

The GCU only runs on the machine the gateway is installed on. If someone you don’t trust has physical access to the machine all bets are off; they could do far worse than reset the passwords.

Mmm…Like deactivate a license/delete project etc

Hi !!

Any updates on this ?
Can we do something now in Ignition v7.9.x to protect our projects ??

Protect the machine running Ignition?

Kevin, supposing that another integrator has access to that machine, how can we do then to protect our project?

This is not a use case we intend to support. Access to the machine is access to everything.

There’s always going to be a bail-out way to reset your password and admin access to the machine is going to allow it (among many, many other things).

Use OS-level protections/user restrictions. There’s really nothing we even could do - if an untrusted individual has full access to a production server, they can do just about anything.
