How to Create Different User Roles for Different Levels of Authority in Ingress

Friday, February 13, 2015 FingerTec 0 Comments

In Ingress, you have the ability to assign and control what other users can do in the software depending on the responsibility and task assigned to them. However, you will need to consider the role carefully before allowing the users to take on the role, as they might be able to remove other users or change the settings if the settings are turned on.

There is no limit on the number of user roles that you can create in the Ingress software.

Before you can create a login account for the users, you will first have to create the user role.

To Create User Role

1)      Go to System Settings > System User > User Role
       2)      Click Add Role

3)      Name the Role accordingly
       4)      Select which modules you want to allow to this role.

5)      Click OK to save the settings
6)      Repeat the steps above to create a new role.

Note: If the edit column for any modules is marked, the view column of the same module will be marked automatically.
You can select to update the existing roles by selecting them from the list, and click on Edit Role. Select the existing role and click Remove Role to remove it if it is no longer in use.

To Create Login Account and Assigning User Role

Once you have created the role, you can now assign the role to the employees. Each employee will have a different login name and password to access the software.

1)      Go to System Settings > System Users > User Account
2)      Click Add Account

3)      Key in the User name and create the password.
4)      Select the role from the drop down button.


5)      At the Account Status tab, select active status to grant access to this user.
       6)      It is optional to enroll fingerprints for this user. They can verify their fingerprints to access
              Ingress instead of keying in the password. However, you must plug in the OFIS-Y scanner     
              into the PC before clicking on the Register button. Follow the onscreen instructions to enroll
              fingerprints for this user.

7)      Click OK to save the settings.

Repeat the steps above to create a new user login.

Select the account and click Edit if there’s any information that needs to be edited or click remove account to delete the account permanently.
