While giving our users the best features is important, providing the IT department with full, central control over the system is essential. The IT department is responsible for establishing and managing system control in a CPU, the server, which supervises and establishes all the controls in the organization. Instead of having to manage profiles and permissions machine by machine, a central management tool provides complete control over the environment: user parameters and permissions, authorized storage space, customization of the users’ workspace by user segment, selection of apps seen by users by user segments, etc. eyeOS Professional Edition ships with two tools for this process: Middleware and the Admin Panel.
eyeOS Middleware lets you manage the eyeOS server via web without having to access the Linux layer below and eliminates the need to run advanced commands. eyeOS Middleware lets you:
- - Simplify eyeOS server management, as everything below is independent of the administrator
- - Configure backups so they are done automatically
- - Back up databases
- - View and monitor system information
- - Create new eyeOS tenants
With configuration in mind, eyeOS Professional Edition contains an intuitive, easy-to-use Admin Panel for system administrators. The panel contains six tabs that give you complete control over the system:
This tab shows the current status of the system: number of connected users, profiles, workgroups, system groups, disk space usage in eyeOS, and current registered users vs. total number allowed per license, making it easy to see whether the current license is enough for the company’s requirements.
Create new users, view a list of existing users and manage their data and permissions.
Selecting a user gives more details: general information on the user, contact details, profiles and workgroups where the user is a member.
You can also control users’ consumption with a simple report that is generated automatically.
Create, edit and manage profiles applicable to users.
You can personalize user profiles (name, wallpaper, etc.), check default desktop files applied to this profile, change the disk quota, etc. For permissions, you can assign a system group with a profile and can see the users associated with that profile.
Create and manage workgroups, add new members and change roles.
Display specific details on each workgroup. Edit the description of the group and add an image. You can add new members, change their status or even delete them from the group.
Create and manage system groups and define profile permissions: group profile (depending on the profile) and system groups (independent of the profile).
