Users are objects in
Project view
. Assign permissions and roles to users to determine the content and interface that the user sees in the application at runtime.    
Each project has a default Anonymous user that authenticates the application session. At runtime, the session user is the user who is logged on to the application. The content and UI that appears depends on the properties and group assigned to the user. For example, the interface may change the:
  • Session locale and update the graphical interface
  • Graphic objects and information available on the interface, depending on the groups to which the user belongs
TIP: Change the default user authentication mode to allow local
users and Active Directory users to log in to the
FactoryTalk Optix Application
. In
Project view
, select the project node and then in
, change
Authentication mode
