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. Instead, you create an Access & Rules Profile for a printer and add the Access Control Rule to the Access & Rules Profile.
1. Add a New Access & Rules Profile to a Printer
- Select the printer to add the Access and Rules Profile to.
- Click . The Access & Rules dialog is displayed.
- At [Profile Name], specify a unique name for the Access & Rules Profile.
2. Add a New Access Control Rule to the Access and Rules Profile
- Click , located in the same row as the [Access Control Rules] drop-down. The Access & Rules Profile displays
- At [Rule Name], specify a unique name for the Access Control Rule.
3. Add ID Code Authentication as the Identification Method
- From the [Criteria] drop-down, select [IDCode].
- From the [Operator] drop-down, select [Is In].
4. Build the Authentication Profile to Validate the PIN
- In the [Profile Name] box, specify a unique name to identify the profile.
- Click , located in the same row as the [Authentication Profile] drop-down. The Authentication Profile is displayed.
- Specify the AD/LDAP query (similar to that of the screen capture shown below) that returns the list of users who are authorized to use the printer.
- Click [Test].
If log in to the Authentication Server is successful, a message is displayed below the [Test] button.
- Click [Save]. You are returned to the Authentication Source Profile.
- At [Auto unenroll inactive user after days], enter the number of days.
An enrolled user who has not used the Celiveo system after the specified number of days is automatically removed.
- To enable authentication with a Smartphone using BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), tick the Use Celiveo Mobile ID checkbox.
