Control Connection aspect override dialog
System: 800xA 5.1 FP4 Rev D RU1
OS: MS Windows 7 Ent. & MS Windows Server 2008 R2
Server type: Physical
On our system we want to bring up a dialogue for overriding parameters in the "Control Connection" aspect for advant tags (by double clicking), but we are not able to do so. "Write" is enabled for the parameters we are testing, and tried with several userrights (incl. 800xA admin).
We have a similar system on another site where this is possible, and it appears the settings are similar.
Anyone have an idea where this is configured, and why it is not working for us?

Writing by double clicking a property in a Control Connection aspect is only open to members of the restricted Software Developers group (the required permission level "Operate" or "Tune" must still be met).
The software developer role is not intended for regular use and seems to be something left enabled by mistake on some of the users in the other system you are refering to.
"[...] Just to confirm your requirement that that you are expecting a dialog of providing the user credentials before any change can be done...?
You can use "Re-Authentication" or "Double Authentication".... [...]"
We are looking for a dialogue to manually enter an override value (without requiring authentication). Currently nothing happens when clicking the values in the "Property View" window under "Control Connection" aspect
