SecurityLock allows to create up to 16 user groups which can have different access rights. It is possible to assign 1000 users to the groups.
There are system access rights which are project independant, like the right to do configuration and/or commissioning. Those are configured in SecurityLock.
In a project you can assign groups to the project from the ones that you configured in SecurityLock. In the Engineering Tool (CBF) you can assign operator rights (read, write, read&write, none) for individual Tags and for displays to groups. Users assigned to a group inherit the groups access right.
Best have a look at the SecurityLock manual to understand the security lock concept.
The UID file is automatically created by the Security Lock programm, when you create user groups and assign users to the groups.
A UID file is local to the Operator station only. If you want to have the same user access on all operator stations copy the UID file created by Security Lock manually to all Operator stations.
