How can I add users to a failover node to see maps?



Want to be able to add users to a failover node, to view maps and sensors, as read only users. Customers want to be able to view maps and sensors but not able to make changes. I set the users to read only, on the master, but they don't replicate to the failover server and I can't add them to the failover server.

users and maps (amongst the other objects like devices and sensors, etc.) are transmitted from the master node to all other failover nodes. Only the background image of maps is not transmitted. The webinterface of failover nodes is generally a read-only access. You might have experienced issues on an older beta, please try the latest beta/release candidate.

Best Regards.
