User guide

All viewLinc users must be assigned to one or more groups. Each group is assigned rights that define the viewLinc windows the users in the group can access.

Users can belong to more than one group. To help get you started, there are two default groups available:

  •  Administrators: A user added to the viewLinc Administrators group has all rights assigned. They can access all windows and perform any function within viewLinc .
  •  Everyone: All new users are automatically assigned to the Everyone group. This group has access to the Overview, Sites, Reports, Alarms, Views Manager, and Events windows. The Zones and Locations users are permitted to view and/or modify within a window are set with permission levels.

Members of the Administrators group are automatically granted Full Control permission to all Zones and Locations. They can also perform system-level changes, such as restart viewLinc Enterprise Server or a device host, acknowledge system alarms, acknowledge all inactive alarms, permanently delete Zones or Locations, and fix the validation status or remote lock on DL data loggers.
