ORION MAPS Feature Request-Ability for Non Admin accounts to view custom maps in Read Only mode.

ORION MAPS Feature Request-Ability for Non Admin accounts to view custom maps in Read Only mode.

0 Kudos

I have created individual building maps for our campus.  We have Network Liasons at each location that need to be able to see their building maps.   They all have accounts that do not have Admin rights so can not currently see the custom maps in Orion Maps.

I found a work around by adding a Widget in the Device Properties page with a link to an "All Maps" map, but it is really bad.  Very ugly and not user friendly.

Hello @krc85aggie - I want to be sure what you are asking for.  It sounds like you are using the map editor and then building specific maps out for different teams.  You don't need Admin rights to view maps, unless you are attempting to only view maps through the Map Management list view which is designed to show each user their list of maps.  Admins of course have the ability to toggle to see all maps.  

I assume that each Network liaison has likely has a customized view or dashboard specific to their responsibilities correct?  Why not add the map to that view or a subview of that dashboard?  I wouldn't necessarily add maps to specific Device Details views unless you are doing some sort of unique map for specific device types and creating custom views by device type. Your other option if you are just looking for links is to add a "User Links" widget where you could provide URL access to each map. 

The second part of your two requests is to prevent users from accessing Edit from View mode I believe which is something we can look into.  Keep in mind that while users are able to edit the map, they are not able to save these changes and can only perform a save as, so you wouldn't need to worry about protecting your original copy of the map.  Please let me know if there are any other details I am missing.  Really appreciate the feedback!

Thanks for the reply!

A hurdle I have is that all of the Liasons are logged in using a Windows Group, so are not defined as individual users.

I will look at the option of a User Links widget.

So, would love something similar to this in the new Orion Maps.

Understood - the User Links widget can perform this for you.

I just set up a Widget.  That functionality is acceptable.  However, is there a way to increase the number of links (over 10) that I can add per widget.  I have well over a hundred building maps and would like 1 long list rather than 10-15 of 10 each.

Unfortunately there is not a way that is native to that widget. Another way may be to just use a custom table widget.  Using a custom table choose the datasource and specify Orion Maps.  I then chose "Map Name" and actually added "Status" as my two columns.  Under the Map name column you can use the Details Link.

Once done you will have a clickable list, that also depicts status of each map.

Clicking on the links will take you directly into full screen interactive/View Mode of that map.

Outstanding!

Thanks so much for your help!
