From Wiki-eostar.com
Jump to: navigation, search

This plugin allows authorized employees to log in to a website where they can see sales data.

To start, install the plug in normally. You must also install a 'BusinessReviewApp.zip' file using Web Deploy. It mimics the installation of the eoNet web service, and uses the same connection strings that are set up for handhelds.

Setup

Access Web>Business Review Logins. Here, you create logins for users. Fill out all required fields (seen below). The 'Username' is what the employee will use to log in to the website.

Permissions

There are levels of access available for each individual employee or a specific employee department. The Permissions Panel limits or expands the field of access towards certain functions of eoStar and also creates a level of security.

  • May access compliance log - Grants ability to view the Compliance Log screen
  • May delete compliance log entries - Grants ability to delete any compliance log posted to the system


How It's Used

Login

Users visit the site http://iisserver/BusinessReviewApp/, where they are prompted to log in. They must enter their username as 'connectionstring.username (ex: eoandre3.johnr). The username is not case sensitive.
