Unmasking User ID when typing into the device using XSA

Jump to solution
Product Name: Xerox AltaLink C8030 / C8035 / C8045 / C8055 / C8070 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

I have a customer who has Xerox Standard Accounting enabled and they would like to see the user id they are ty typing into the machine. As it stands now when they type in the user id, it shows astericks. Can this be enabled and if so, what are the instructions to allow this?  Thanks.

It can't be done, and shouldn't be.

The whole point of XSA is to make it so only some people can use the device. So the User ID is considered the persons password, if I look at the screen when they log in, I can't at a glance see what they type in. I can see their Display Name because that doesn't matter. If their User ID was shown at the printer, Dave from Accounting could simply use Sandra from Receptions account to do his kids school projects, and the wrong person would get billed for the use.
