Setting up security

You can control access to the RICOH ProcessDirector system with user names and security groups. You can also increase the security of the data in your print system by enabling Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) in the Web server component. If you exchange data with a web service, you can install a security certificate for the web service.

All users who access the RICOH ProcessDirector system must have a RICOH ProcessDirector user name and must be assigned to a security group based on job role requirements.

Users can be members of more than one security group. If you belong to more than one group, the system automatically gives you the authority of the highest level group that you belong to. For example, you might be a member of both the Operator and Supervisor groups. When you log in, the system gives you Supervisor authority so you can do actions that a member of the Operator group cannot.
