Technical specifications

  • Configure access separately for each protocol: OPC, DDE, TCP, and Tunnel/Mirror (DataHub to DataHub) connections.
  • Create custom groups with different permissions, and quickly assign users to them.
  • Set permissions for each type of user activity, such as making connections, reading values, changing values, creating new points, deleting points, administrative privileges, and more.
  • Optionally, specify maximum numbers for user logins, and/or set login expiry dates.

Security is part of the DataHub Core, and is thus available in all Products.
