B&R has made centralized, factory-level user management substantially easier. With the new software component mapp UserX, it is now possible to use services based on LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) to implement centralized management of users and user groups, for example using Active Directory from Microsoft.
With mapp UserX, the administrator can easily create users and grant them access to multiple servers using a single username and password. Rather than having to manage user by user on each individual machine, all the user data is stored on a central server and retrieved from there at every login.
State-of-the-art user management
With mapp UserX and LDAP, user management functions are fully integrated as widgets in the mapp View HMI system. Developers can implement powerful, web-based HMI functionality without having to write a single line of code. That makes it easy to meet the requirements for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
