Introduction

The user management feature of the player web interface can be accessed from the top bar menu by clicking the user icon. It contains the following pages:

  • Profile
  • User Management (only for users with Admin rights)
  • Security (only for users with Admin rights)

For full screen, see this video on Vimeo.

Profile

Profile

The Profile page is shown by default when clicking the user icon within the top bar menu. It allows changing your user password and selecting the language used by the content management tools.

  • To be able to change your password, you need to enter the old password - without it only a user with admin rights can perform the password change.
  • There are 13 languages to choose from - by default, the language is set to "Automatic", which uses the browser language to select the interface language.

User Management

Note  
This page is available only to users with Admin rights.
User Management - HMP

This page allows admins to perform the following actions:

  • Create new users
  • Change passwords of existing users
  • Change the rights of existing users
  • Remove users

User rights

When creating a new user, the administrator can choose one or more rights to give to that user, from the following:

  • Read-only access
    The user can access the Create and Schedule pages, but cannot change any content. The user could access the Message app if another user with content authoring rights would share the URL to use that app. This does not apply to HMP400 and HMP400W.
  • Content authoring
    The user can fully use the content management tools to create and schedule content.
    This user can also be used within Elementi to publish content onto the player and to authorize webstorage_***() RPC commands.
  • Monitoring
    The user can access the Control Center home page, the player logs and can generate player reports.
    This user can also be used to authorize get_info() and get_config() RPC commands.
  • Admin
    The user has full access, including to HMP Control Center, and can manage other users.
Note Note:
The SRP icon next to each user indicates whether SRP is activated for that user - in case a warning icon is shown, simply update the user password to enable SRP. For more details, see Server Security section.

Security

Note  
This page is available only to users with Admin rights.
Control Center - Security

From this page, you can enable / disable the following security features:

  • Password protect RPC admin
    If disabled, the access to the RPC endpoint no longer requires authorization, thus anybody can send RPC commands to the player.
  • Password protect content publishing
    If disabled, the access to the HMP content server no longer requires authorization, thus anybody can publish onto that HMP.
  • Password protect monitoring
    If disabled, the access to the monitoring endpoints no longer requires authorization, thus anybody can access the player logs (http://HMP_address/log/), the snapshot (http://HMP_address/status/snapshot), and the status information (http://HMP_address/status/info).
Note Note:
It is highly recommended keeping all password protections enabled!
