Access Profile


User can create and control profiles for login methods like Username password, MAC Address, PIN Code, Direct Access, Standard Login, Email, SMS, and Guest access profile. The profiles are configured in three ways :

  • Manual Access Profile Creation – User can create the profile, configure Access Details and attach it to a User Account.
  • Auto Access Profile Creation – The profiles are created for a user account based on certain login methods like Email, SMS, and Social Media. Upon successful login, the User Account and Profile are auto-generated which is visible in the ‘User management’.
  • System Access Profile Creation – The system profile is the pre-configured profile, where the user can clone the profile, configure it and attach it to a User Account.

User can access the Access Profile page by navigating to ‘HOTSPOT USERS > Access Profile‘. As shown in Image 1 below.
