Users rights policy

Ask a question

In Sigur, you will be able to assign individual areas of responsibility to each operator. In their accounts, the operators will have access only to the functionality essential to performing their duties.

User rights

User rights are assigned depending on the tasks performed by the operators: a certain set of actions is made available to each operator in the system.

For instance, admins will have maximum rights, such as have access to all features and functionality of the system; however, a pass and registration employee will have access only to the functionality required to issue passes and badges to employees and visitors of the company.

If the company has geographically remote offices, it is also important to separate responsibilities since a security officer in one city does not need to know what is happening at a checkpoint in another city.

How user right limitations work

Limitation of user rights in Sigur allows maximum flexibility when adapting the system to individual operator’s needs. You can configure not only access to the system functionality but also set different levels (ability to perform certain operations) such as:

  • View the data
  • Edit / delete data
  • Control checkpoints and locks, etc.

For users’ convenience, any extra functionality unavailable to the user will be concealed from the interface. For example, a security officer at a checkpoint needs to see information about the passing employee and be able to unlock the door but they do not need to edit any fields in the cardholders’ files (such as their name, access rights, etc.).

Password policy

You can create a password policy for all operators in the system. It contains general requirements for operators’ passwords that ensure a certain level of protection of user accounts.
This password policy might include such requirements as which symbols can or cannot be used in the password (numbers, letters, other symbols) as well as the maximum length of the password.

System login options

Sigur offers a number of login options for operators of the system:

  • Login and password: suitable for a standard workstation with a mouse and a keyboard
  • Access card: a desktop reader is required, can be used for a security officer’s workstation without a mouse and a keyboard
  • Auto login: in the properties of the client launch icon, you can specify the account parameters (login and password), can be used without a keyboard

Compatible operating systems

Sigur server and client software can be run in different operating systems. In fact, your system can include workstations running under different operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Linux (some functionality limitations may apply)
