Administration rights

Post by vfxgeek »

Hi,

Is there a way to set myself as a Afanasy admin, so that I can see and control jobs sent by other users ?
Currently I only see my own jobs.

For me the default passwords didn't work. In config_default.json you will find "pswd_visor" and "pswd_god" values. The values here are md5 digests of the passwords. To calculate your own you can use python

Code: Select all

import hashlib
hashlib.md5("MyPassword".encode("utf-8")).hexdigest()

Hi!
Passwords should be typed in AfWatch to switch mode.
Keeper does not have any modes.

Yes, sorry, I meant AfWatch - there is no password field to type in the password. Typing it just in the AfWatch window doesn't do anything.
I have already changed the password in the config file.

Hi!
In the latest version afwatch got a menu for modes. By clicking a menu item, password typing field is rased.
But you can always type password just in the main window, ensure that no other widget grabbed keyboard focus.
(just launch afwatch, do nothing, just start to type password)

OK, now I have it working. The default md5 sums in config files are incorrect. I generated the default password myself - the md5 sum is different - and now it works.

Hm, it works right now for many users.
I see there is some mess in docs, default passwords letters are lowercase.
I'll fix it on docs site.
