This topic describes settings that control the Ricoh ESA Unified Client login to Output Manager.
The Ricoh ESA Unified Client login is configured in the Output Manager Console by the External client login options (see Configure logon methods).
The External client login The settings define three login methods and two PIN options:
- User name and password login.
- Card swipe login, with optional PIN.
A PIN can be treated as password for a card ID.
- Manual card ID entry login, with option for a PIN.
After you change login settings on the Output Manager server, restart the Ricoh ESA Unified Client to implement the changes. Depending on the selections in the External client login settings, users see different login options at the Ricoh ESA Unified Client.
Typically, all three login methods are enabled. Depending on the default login method selected at the Output Manager server, the user sees either the user name and password login or the manual card ID entry login.
A user can press Switch to switch between these to methods. If one of the methods is not enabled, the switch button does not appear. For example:
Since the Card Swipe Login is always available, there is no need to switch to it and it cannot be specified as a default login method in the Output Manager server. When Card Swipe Login is the only method enabled, the screen prompts to swipe a card.
The following screen shows when no login method is available.
The user name, password, and card ID or PIN are entered using a soft keyboard.
When the Allow unmasked card ID check box is cleared, the entry is obscured as the user types characters.
