NOTE
Depending on your device, some restrictions may not be supported.
Using the Access Management System can provide the following effects:
Preventing external leakage of information
By restricting functions such as the Copy, Send, and Store functions and restricting the keys that can be used on the [Settings/Registration] screen for each user, you can prevent the external leakage of information.
Reducing costs
By restricting functions related to copying/printing such as color output, one-sided output, and page layout for each user, you can reduce the cost of using devices.

Flow of User Authentication and Usage Restriction

When the Access Management System setup is complete, user authentication is required when operating the touch panel display or printing from a computer.
If Using the Touch Panel Display <Device Level Log-in>:
When using the Access Management System with Device Level Log-in, if the Access Management System setup is complete, a Login screen is displayed on the touch panel display.
When [Log In] is pressed after entering a user name and password, user authentication is performed, and only the functions which that user can use become available on the touch panel display.
When an unregistered user is using the device and they press [Log In (Guest)] without entering a user name and password, only the functions that are not restricted become available on the touch panel display.
Since the [Settings/Registration] screen of the device can also be restricted, you can limit which users can change the settings of the device.
IMPORTANT
To effectively use the Access Management System, make sure that users log out from the device when they finish using it by pressing (Log In/Out) or (Log Out) on the touch panel display.
If Using the Touch Panel Display<Function Level Log-in>:
When using the Access Management System with Function Level Log-in, if the Access Management System setup is complete, the [Main Menu] screen is displayed on the touch panel display.
When you press the button for a function set with restrictions, the Login screen is displayed.
When [Log In] is pressed after entering a user name and password, user authentication is performed, and the screen for specifying detailed settings for the function is displayed on the touch panel display, only if the user is allowed to use that function.
Since the [Settings/Registration] screen of the device can also be restricted, you can limit which users can change the settings of the device.
IMPORTANT
To effectively use the Access Management System, make sure that users log out from the device when they finish using it by pressing (Log In/Out) or (Log Out) on the touch panel display.
If Printing from a Computer:
If you want to restrict printing from computers, it is necessary to set up (install the AMS Printer Driver Add-in and set user information for) all client computers that use the device after setting up the Access Management System.
If the client computers have been set up, the [Confirm Password for Authentication] dialog box is displayed when users print from a computer.
When [OK] is pressed after entering a password, user authentication is performed, and the restricted printing functions are displayed.
