FindFace Security provides the following predefined roles:
Administrator has rights to manage cameras, events, FindFace Security users, the dossier database, and full access to all other functions.
Whatever the role, the first administrator (Super Administrator) cannot be deprived of its rights.
Operator can create dossiers manually, receive and acknowledge events, and search for faces on the event list. The other data is available read-only. The batch dossier creation is unavailable.
User has a right to receive and acknowledge events, and to search for faces on the event list. The other data is available read-only.
You can change the predefined roles privileges, as well as create various custom roles.
Create Custom Role¶
To create a custom role, do the following:
Navigate to the Preferences tab. Click Roles.
On the Information tab, specify the role name.
Click Save. You will see additional tabs appear next to the Information tab. You can use these tabs to assign the role privileges for specific watch lists (the Watch Lists tab) and camera groups (Camera Groups), as well as for entire system functions and entities (Permissions).
For example, if you set
Nonefor a certain camera group on the Camera Groups tab, users with this role won’t be able to work with this very group of cameras. Setting
cameragroupon the Permissions tab will prevent users from viewing and working with all camera groups.
The right for an event consists of the rights for a corresponding camera and watch list. To see unmatched events, you only need the rights for a camera.
The full list of the FindFace Security entities is as follows:
dossierlist: watch list
dossierface: photo in a dossier
cameragroup: camera group
listevent: event list
uploadlist: list of photos in batch upload
upload: item (photo) in batch photo upload
group: user role
videosource: face identification in offline video
You can also enable and disable rights for the following functionality:
configure_genetec: configuration of Genetec integration
configure_ntls: configuration of the
batchupload_dossier: batch photo upload
view_runtimesetting: viewing the FindFace Security general preferences
change_runtimesetting: changing the FindFace Security general preferences
Primary and Additional User Privileges¶
You assign privileges to a user by using roles:
- Primary role: main user role, mandatory for assignment. You can assign only one primary role to a user.
- Role: additional user role, optional for assignment. You can assign several roles to one user. The rights associated with the additional roles will be added to the primary privileges.
The different between a primary and additional roles is the following. If a user is assigned a certain primary role, this role will be automatically granted the
Change permissions for all objects newly created by this user (cameras, watch lists, dossiers, etc.). This doesn’t happen when you assign an additional role. For example, if a user is assigned a primary role
Manager, all users with the
Manager role will be able to change the objects newly created by this user. On the contrary, if you assign
Manager as an additional role, other users with the
Manager role will need a relevant permission to change the objects created by the user.
To create a user, do the following:
Navigate to the Preferences tab. Click Users.
Specify such user data as name, login and password. If necessary, add a comment.
From the Roles drop-down menu, select one or several user roles. Set one of them as the Primary role.
Deactivate or Delete User¶
In order to deactivate a user, simply uncheck Active on the user list ( ).
To delete a user from FindFace Security, click on the user login on the list. Click Delete.
