NA-series password change

7 posts in this topic

I’m looking for an option to be able to change the user login passwords on a NA HMI with a screen button or with the PLC. Is it possible? VBA code needed?

I know there are login and logout options to be set to screen button but I can’t see anything for password change other than through Sysmac Studio

Users can be managed from a built-in screen in the system menu.

Thanks for your answer!

Any way the passwords can be written with the PLC? Are they variables in the HMI maybe? Can it be done with VBA code?

You can with a screen button. Select the button then choose Events and Actions. Set the Action to Login(). You can also create another one to Logout().

I don't believe there is a variable for the password but you can control the User and the Role. The User is "_HMI_CurrentUserName" and the Role is "_HMI_CurrentUserRole".

He said he already knew the login and logout, wanted user management.  That's only in the utility menu.
