I am creating different user accounts in my Ignition gateway. In the beginning it was easy: every user had one role. In the designer, I could enable/disable all functions based on the security option on the different components. No problems there.
I am in the stage where I want to give multiple roles to one user. Based on the location/laptop the client is logged in, I want to give him a certain role. For example:
- George is an administrator. He has his own desktop and when he logs in, he has the Administrator role.
- When George needs to go to a different location, and he logs in on a different computer with the same account, I don’t want to give him the role of Administrator, but only as an operator.
I know that I can check the hostname/ipaddress and stuff like that. But I am not sure how I can assign a “lesser” role in stead of the Administrator role. I tried working with Security Zones, but I don’t think that this will fix my problem.
I have different Desktops that access the gateway, but only one gateway. The application is made in Vision.
Any advice on how to do this best?
Thanks in advance!
