You enable ID Code authentication by creating an Access Control Rule and assigning the rule to a printer. You however cannot assign an Access Control Rule directly to a printer.

  2. Click [Save]. You are returned to the Authentication Source Profile.

Dual Service Account System

To avoid any connection error after refreshing/changing the login/password on service accounts used by Celiveo, the administrator can define a secondary set of credentials so that if the default (primary) set is declined by the solution, then the secondary set takes over and prevents the access from being denied.

5. Specify How to Enable Self Enrollment

  1. Click [Self-Enrollment].
  2. Click next to the [Self Enrollment].

  2. At [ID Code Settings] specify if you want a numeric (made of digits) or alphanumeric (made of digits and letters) PIN. You can also choose the length of your code.
    1. Numeric ID codes shall not:
      • Start with 0

      • Always be uppercased when entered on MFP screen, for example, at5p => AT5P
      • Have a random mix of digits and letters
      • Supported letters can be A to Z except for o and i that can be mixed up with 0 and 1.
      • Supported digits can be 1 to 9, no zero
