    Hello everyone,

    I'm using Webvisu on chromium in kiosk mode to monitor some variables from a screen placed near the Raspberry.
    My problem is that every time I restart the system, the kiosk mode starts but a login window pops up, with the Webvisu loading forever in the background (picture attached). Here, I can login with any of the users added in the 'Users and Groups' tab.
    I need to eliminate this because the system needs to be minimal (no keyboard nor mouse) and it will be used by different operators.

    I noticed that by eliminating completely the User management, it's solved, but this is not an option for me bc I need to keep it.

    Bottom line: how can I disable the need for Webvisu authentication on Codesys?

    Thanks in advance,
    F

    Hey,

    What runtime version are you using?

    Could you please provide your codesyscontrol.cfg?

    Thx

    Best regards,

    Hey,
    I am sorry to say, but the option to not require a runtime user login was only added with runtimes >= 3.5.14.0

    Best regards,
    Marcel

      It is disabled by default.
      If you however require a file service, you have to do a runtime login.

        @m.prestel
        I apologize for not being more clear what my question is. I'm trying to clarify the answer to the original question which is (basically paraphrased...)

        • "how can the User Management be enabled but not required for webvisu only"

        I want to protect my controller against unauthorized downloads/uploads and prevent access to the code but I don't want to require a login for the webvisu pages.

        Is it possible to access the webvisu pages without password or create a user with no password that can access the webvisu pages? If so, how is this done?

          "I want to protect my controller against unauthorized downloads/uploads and prevent access to the code but I don't want to require a login for the webvisu pages."

          If you are using a runtime version >= 3.5.14.0, you should not be required to provide a runtime login.
          This is however the case, if you have one of the following two settings active in your CODESYSControl.cfg:
          AllowFileTransferServices=1
          CallVisuServicesDirectly=0

          Best regards,
          Marcel
