TIP

1. A very useful feature is to right click on a Vehicle/User and select Overview. It will show you which exact Privileges a user has enabled.

2. There is a useful feature in SiteAdmin to login "impersonated". In the application list in SiteAdmin click on the icon left to the name of the application, then select the username to login as. In this way you can verify that a user gets the proper experience when logged in.

Hi,

We have special kind of service with customer. We need to allow partial right from _EditUsers, like those:
- cannot add new user
- cannot delete user
- able to edit Details, Driver info and Marker only
- cannot edit else (User type, Roles, Tags, Device 1, Device 2, Device 3, Track recorder, Accumulators).

Please consider this. Thank you.

Hello.
When an event rule is positive, Server will NOT send emails to those Vehicles registered as _unit.
What privilege do I need to enable in _unit to receive emails?

regards!
PD: changing _unit to _Operator, immediately will start to receive emails from event rules.

A Role needs _ReadData access to vehicles to receive email alerts, reports and see them in map view. More info: topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=15060

Hi,

1. What is _AnonymousLogin for?

2. As GGS 3.1 Web and Mobile login do not consume license, I have separate login for human and for device. Are these privileges:

-AlwaysValid
-CheckHDOP
-LiveFilter
-UseTrackingSchedule

use only by Device (and not making any sense to have this for Web and Mobile login)? is there anything else beside these?


Thank you.
