Configuration Considerations

If you are using a Facility Code, you will need to use a Serial based reader, USB will not read the code. If you are using mixed devices (serial and USB) you should turn off the Facility Code.

Integration with Relevance User Security

One badge can be associated with one Relevance user. So when a badge is scanned, the associated Relevance user is automatically logged into Relevance Security.

This can be done manually with the Relevance User Configuration Wizard, which can be launched by double clicking the Relevance user of interest. On the Card / Badge Information page of this wizard, simply check the "This user will use a card, badge, or other device to log in" checkbox. Then manually enter the badge number to be associated with the Relevance user. Click Finish.

To require a password in addition to the card scan, simply check the "Always Prompt for Password" checkbox - this enables Multi-Factor Authentication (something you have plus something you know).

ThinManager can also be configured to prompt an Administrator to perform this association when a new badge is scanned. To enable this option in ThinManager 7 and later, click the View ribbon, followed by the Options button. Check the "Display "Create New User" dialog for unknown users" option and click OK.
