Introduction


It is often necessary to give different users different permissions. Also it can be useful to change the user interface according to the size of the device that is used. For this reason EVE allows the creation of an unlimited number of users, each one with a specific customized user interface. Each user has also the possibility, if authorized, to create other users, to change their own interface or even change the configuration values ​​of the components on the bus.

2015-08-19_15-55-43How do I get access to the users management menu?

Select “Project” from the main menu bar and then “User”. When selecting “User” the menu does expand and give you few more options. You can edit the current user of your project (displaied on the title bar of EVE Manager) or add a new user to the project. Below a list of all the users of the project.

Admin settings

Admin user is the first and only user of any new EVE project. It is created by default and cannot be removed from the project. Admin is allowed to operate on any part of the project. This means that it owns all the project’s permissions and it is the user which defines password, settings and also the creation of new users and their permissions.

When you open a saved project it is asked you to authenticate yourself entering your ID and password. EVE will automatically check if you are allowed to manage the project and will load it or reject your request. In other words, the credentials to get access to the project are defined by the user authentication and not by a project password. Admin is the only user to be allowed to manage the project (at least at the beginning) and this means that its credentials will be the one which will allows to work on the project. It is important therefore for the Admin to edit the defaulted password as soon as possible in order to make the system safe and unaccessible for any stranger.
