  1. Within the home tab select “System Parameters”:

  2. In the “System Parameters”, navigate to the “Security” tab. This is where you can configure the number of users you prefer by selecting the “enable” button next to a defined user name and password:

  3. Each enabled user may be assigned a set of security classes by selecting the corresponding “Class” check box in the user’s row. The “Class” is used to restrict access to certain objects, as objects can be modified to only allow action by users with certain class qualifications:

  4. Create an object and navigate to the “Security” tab of the object. Here, use the “Object class” drop-down list to select the desired security class. Below the “Object class” drop-down list, are actions that will take effect when the classification of a user doesn’t meet these requirements:

  5. To log into a user account, we will create a “Function Key” object that will display the “Login” window.

  6. Within the “Function Key” object, opt for “Display Popup Window” as the designated function. Select “70. Login & Logout” as the “Window No.” This predefined login window is available within each project. Should you opt for a customized login page, create one and input its corresponding window number in the “Window No.” field:

  7. To access a protected object, the user must log in by using the “Login” window called by the function key object. If the user account meets the class requirements, they can interact with the protected object:
    Note: Click the “Enter” key after you enter the password.
