Designing the Users Management project
Abstract

Check out this article and learn how to design your Users Management project, by following these easy steps, accompanied by screenshots.

The following components can be found under the Security category, of the Toolbox panel, for all projects created on the i4SCADA platform:

  • User manager - compiles all the user management panels: Users panel, Project authorizations panel, Authorization groups panel, Access groups panel, and Access authorizations panel.

  • Users - list all the i4SCADA users, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

  • Project authorizations - lists all the i4SCADA Project authorizations, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

  • Authorization groups - lists all the i4SCADA Authorization groups, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

  • Access groups - lists all the i4SCADA Access groups, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

  • Access authorizations - lists all the i4SCADA Access authorizations, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

  • User actions - lists all the i4SCADA User actions, to which the currently logged-in user has access.

Since the User manager component compiles all the other management panels, we shall use it to build our project. You can also design a project with multiple pages, where the individual components can be distributed, as needed.

  1. Log into the i4designer Control Center and create a new project on the i4SCADA platform.

    Tip

After publishing your HTML Users Management project, here is how you can use the run-time components, to manage your users.

  1. Access your i4SCADA environment and open the visualization.

  2. The User Manager component is visible on the page, but before logging into the system, the list of users is unpopulated.

    Visualization_-_before_login.jpg
  3. Click the Login component and fill in your credentials. Click the Login button to proceed.

    Login.jpg
  4. As soon as you are authenticated, the list of users is populated with all the users that you have permission to view.

    List_of_users.jpg
  5. The drop-down list of the User Manager component header allows you to switch between the user management panels. Each panel will be described independently in the upcoming sections:

    drop-down_list.jpg

    Note

    The drop-down list is by default set to display the Users panel.

The Users panel

The Users panel, of the User Manager, displays the entire list of i4SCADA users. Due to the security protocol enforced by the web services, the list will reveal only the users to which the logged-in user has access to see.

List_of_users.jpg

The Users list

The list is split up into the following columns:

  • Active - if the checkbox is enabled, the listed user is active.

  • Type - depending on the displayed icon, listed users may be either i4SCADA users or domain users.

  • Name - the name of the user.

  • Description - the description of the user.

  • Actions - allows the user with the possibility to manage the listed users, by means of the following actions: the Clone user button Clone_button.jpg, Change password button Change_PW_button.jpg, Edit button Edit_button.jpg, and Delete button Delete_button.jpg.

Tip

For more details about the i4SCADA Users please also visit our i4SCADA knowledgebase, and read the dedicated articles, here.

Authenticated users can change the default settings attributed to all new users, by clicking the User default settings button, of the Users panel:

User_default_settings.jpg

The User default settings dialog

  • Active - enables all new users to take actions in the system. If this option is not checked, the new users will not be able to log in or perform any actions in i4SCADA visualizations.

  • Description - sets a custom description of all new users.

  • User-level - sets a default user level, for all new users. Users can be split into multiple user levels for easier management. The default value is set to 0, which is the minimum value. No lower values can be added.

  • Auto log-off interval - sets a default log-off timer for idle users. If the amount of time specified here passes while the user is idle (performs no action while logged in an i4SCADA visualization), the user will be logged off. When returning from the idle state, the user must log in again. The default value is set to 0, which is the minimum value and also represents no Auto log off. No lower values can be added.

  • Max failed logons - sets a default number of failed login attempts that can be made before blocking the user. If the user tries and fails to log in more than the number of times specified here, the system will automatically block him for one minute. After the first minute, the user can try to log in again. If the next attempt fails, the user will be blocked for the next 2 minutes, and so on. For each consecutive failed login attempt, the block time will be increased to a maximum of 30 minutes. If the user performs a successful login, the failed login attempts and the block time will be reset. If the i4SCADA Server is stopped while a user is blocked, the user will be allowed to attempt to log in directly when the Server starts. If the attempt fails, the user will be blocked again and the block time increases from the previous increment.

  • Multiple logons - if enabled, the user is able to log on simultaneously in the same i4SCADA visualization from different locations.

  • Log activities - if enabled, all the user's login and logout actions are stored as events in the database and can be seen in the User actions panel.

  • Privileged writing - If enabled, sets all the new users to have privileged writing rights. Users having the privileged writing option enabled, can take ownership of the write groups configured with restricted access, even if they are currently owned by another user.

By clicking the Password policies button, authenticated users can manage the password policies:

Password_policies.jpg

The Password policies dialog

  • Enforce password history - Sets the number of password renewal cycles, during which a password cannot be repeated. The default value is set to 0, which is the minimum value. No lower values can be added.

  • Min. password length - Sets the minimum number of characters of the password. The default value is set to 0, which is the minimum value. No lower values can be added.

  • Max. password age (days) - Sets the number of days until the user is forced to change the password. If the Enforce password history is set to a number of renewal cycles other than 0, the user will not be able to reuse the password until that number of cycles pass. The default value is set to 0, which is the minimum value. No lower values can be added.

  • Must contain digits - If enabled, all passwords must contain at least one digit.

  • Must contain upper case chars - If enabled, all passwords must contain at least one upper case character.

  • Must contain lower case chars - If enabled, all passwords must contain at least one lower case character.

  • Must contain special chars - If enabled, all passwords must contain at least one special character.
