Auditor Help: Auditor Console Lock

In large or highly secured environments, administrators may wish to run Auditor in "Console Lock" mode. Locking the console prevents unauthorized users accessing the interface at all, where they could collect data, change scheduled jobs, run reports, or even make changes to the environment.

Once enabled, can only be run if the correct credentials are entered. No actions can be performed without credentials while Console Lock is enabled; upgrading, restarting, uninstalling.

  1. Choose File... Settings... from the menu.
