User rights

In most cases, the administrator defines user rights centrally in the Scout Console. However, with the relevant user right, the user can also change user rights locally.

1 The user rights of the device configuration correspond to the dialogs of the Configuration panel.
Example: The user right to modify the key delay is located under Device Configuration > Mouse/Keyboard.
2 User rights to define new applications or modify/delete existing applications
3 User rights for general functions
4 Switch status between hidden and modifyable
5 Attention: All user rights are hidden and thus deactivated with a single click.
6 Allow all user rights with a single click

Changing user rights


User right Edit user rights

  1. Open the Configuration panel and select Security > User rights.
  2. To edit user rights for the device configuration or application definition, expand the relevant node and navigate to the desired function.

  3. To modify the status of a function, use the control on the right and click hidden or modifiable.

    The current status of a function is also displayed textually.

    If you hide the Device Configuration node, the entire Configuration panel will no longer be displayed. Also, you will no longer be able to access the user rights.

  4. Confirm with Apply.

Modified user rights become active on the next device restart.

Note: If the device is managed by Scout, normally the device configuration defined in the Scout Console and thus the user rights defined there have priority. The administrator can define exceptions and support (protect) local device configurations.
