An access control is a security technique used to regulate who can view and modify items on the digital signage platform. For example, an access control can grant a user the ability to view and modify a specific sequence. Additional access controls can be created to allow multiple users access to different items within the digital signage system.
When a user signs into the administration system, only items they have been granted access to will be visible.
Add an item to a group so users with access to the group have access to the item. You can add any item created in the digital signage system to a group.
Items can be made accessible to a user by adding the user to the Access tab when editing.
Access controls for users:
- Full — The user will have full access to the item.
- Read only — The user can only view the item.
Items can be added to a group by adding the group to the Access tab when editing.
Access controls for groups:
- Full — Users with access to the selected group have full access to the item.
- Read only — Users with access to the selected group can view the item but not control it.
- Low vis — Users with access to the selected group will not see the item displayed in the full list of items. This can help speed up performance when there are a lot of items. For more information see Low visibility access controls.
Access controls can be assigned to screens, sequences, library items, users, groups, and cloud configurations.
