You will need to provide something to work with here, your printer model, what you want the LDAP to do (Look up email addresses or log into the printer itself)

Re: Security - Authentication and Authorization PDF doc (CenterWare)

Thanks for your reply. I would like to know if I can just add users and Roles from Centerware without having to give admin rights to Normal User who is just using the Centerware on Win 10.

 

I need PDF doc that will show how to add Roles and Add Users to Roles. At the same time I am trying to get Model Number.

 

Thanks

Re: Security - Authentication and Authorization PDF doc (CenterWare)

Here is the security Doc that I had seen from ---WorkCenterSupplementry_Guide.pdf.

 

Security-Related Supplement to User Guidance
Security-10 Related Supplement to User Guidance
Accessing the Printer
To ensure that unauthorized users cannot access the printer, the system administrator can configure
authentication and authorization. If the administrator configures authentication and authorization,
you can be required to type your user name and password to access some or all of the features on the
printer. If the administrator configures accounting, you must type an accounting code to access
tracked features.
Authentication
Authentication is the process of confirming your identity. When the system administrator enables
authentication, the printer compares the information that you provide to another source of
information, such as an LDAP directory. You can be authenticated when accessing features at the
control panel or using CentreWare Internet Services. If the administrator configures local or network
authentication, you identify yourself by typing your user name and password at the control panel or in
CentreWare Internet Services. If the administrator configures card reader authentication, you identify
yourself by swiping a magnetic or proximity card at the control panel and typing a passcode.
Note: The administrator can allow you to type your user name and password to access the printer
when Smart Card authentication is the primary authentication method. If the administrator
configures an alternative authentication method, and you misplace your card, you can still access
the printer.

First you configure them for your LDAP server and verify it works, which is all done via CWIS > Properties > Connectivity > Setup > LDAP > Edit

Add New (Or edit one that is already there)

 

2.JPG

 

Nobody but your Server admin can tell you what goes here though, you fill out tab 1, and then test by searching on tab 2

And until tab 2 finds you, there is no point continuing to the authentication portion as you will just lock yourself out of the device completely

Once the above works, move on to authentication method changes ala CWIS > Properties > Login/Permissions/Accounting > Login Methods > Edit

Change it to Validate on the Network and click Save(Note, this is where you lose admin rights using the default admin/1111 as the machine is no longer able to use its local account permissions)

Now Edit the one for Authentication Servers

 

6.JPG

 

And choose the LDAP option in the dropdown (Which will feed it all your server side users)

 

7.JPG

 

Then to set what logged in users can do, versus those who are not logged in:

CWIS > Properties > Login / Permissions / Accounting > Login Permissions > User Permission Roles

Edit this so that User Permissions Method = Remotely on the Network using LDAP

 

And then select User Permission Roles > Edit

 

8.JPG

 

And set who can do what and when between the 2 tabs

 

8.JPG

 

The 78XX and 58XX will look and be identical with exception of the 78XX has color options to enable/disable.

The C80XX mdel replaces the name of the internal page from CWIS to EWS. The icons/tabs look different across the top and the tree menu in the Properties tab changes Services to Apps

 

The System Admin guide is the only PDF version you are likely to get, but it has to explain things in a wordy way while being very generic since there are so many different scenarios and setups for Network Authentication, and if you cover one in detail, you have to cover them all, and since an Admin can have many ways to do the same thing on the same server (Ask a VI user about people who use Emacs ;-) ), there is just no way to please anyone without angering another.
