Map as Device Tree and access rights




I’ve created a MAP as Device Tree. Some of the sensors on the tree are related on the user access rights. If I login on the account that don’t have access rights to the sensor I can see it on the created Map ( properties : device three ) and if I try to see properties of the sensor, then a window with an error message pops up :

„ Error (Bad Request) Sorry, your user account is not allowed to access this information. Error details „

In my opinion if user don’t have access rights to the sensor it shouldn’t be shown on the Map, that is created as Device Tree.

Best Regards

Hi there,

Please change the "Security Context" in the Map Settings to the user that shouldn't be able to see all sensors. This will only display the sensors/devices where the user has access to.

Best regards.
