One of the features of the Content App is User Management. User Management allows registered users to invite, delete, and set Content App privileges for others. When creating a Content App account and registering an LSM for the first time it is important to consider a user hierarchy before sending out user invitations.
The system and the Content App may involve one or more of the following roles:
- Customer - The entity that has accepted the Terms. Customer defines and grants or revokes access to and use rights for the System and/or Content App to relevant users, including Installers, Service Providers and End-Users.
- Service Provider - A service provider for Customer that has been granted certain access and use rights for the System and/or Content App.
- Installer – The person who installs and commissions the System for Customer which includes setting up the Account as authorized by Customer, and inviting Customer via the Account to be able to use the Content App. Customer may allow that Installers continue to access to the System, Account or use the Content App, also after installation and commissioning of the System
- End User - Personnel of Customer that use the Content App as authorized by Customer.
The Customer is solely responsible for (i) all activities occurring under Accounts created by or for Customer; and (ii) for any use the Content App, including by Service Providers, Installers and/or End Users.
The Customer is solely responsible for any invitations to grant access for the use of the Content App are sent to correct and legitimate email addresses.
It highly recommended to keep the Customer credentials in a safe place in the event of changes in personnel. Philips Color Kinetics is not responsible for lost credentials or deleting old user accounts, for any issues contact email@example.com
As a Master User you can Invite, delete, and edit other user privileges.
- Invite new user by sending an invitation email in top bar
- The invited user will receive an email and can choose to accept the invite and then register for an interact landmark user account.
When sending an invitation, you can determine which Sites, Devices, Features, and Permissions the user will have access to.
A user granted with User Management permission will be able to edit other users access and permissions.
When granting access be very careful on the user privileges that are granted to an user. This is the recommended workflow:
- Installer/VAP/ Commissioning engineer can self-register for the Content App user account.
- After the installation is completed, commissioning engineer must compulsorily ‘Invite’ the end-user with full user management rights for that Site.
- The End User takes ownership of the site and user management, and from here-on decides which user should be provided further access.
This can be changed at anytime through the User List on the User Management tab.
A user can be deleted by clicking the dotted icon next to their email and selecting ‘Delete’.
For any issues regarding user access contact firstname.lastname@example.org
