What is it?

Visual KPI is mobile dashboard software for any device. It reads existing data sources and delivers KPIs, scorecards, analytics and alerts in real-time.

Who uses it?

Decision makers. Operations. Remote workers. Data Junkies. Anyone who values knowing what's happening right now, regardless of their device.

Why use it?

Mobility is no longer optional. Visual KPI presents problems and opportunities before it's too late. Oh, and there's no six-month project that "might" pay off.

Support FAQ > Security > How can I lock down Visual KPI using Active Directory?

Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Once you have created your Visual KPI database and web site, and installed the interfaces, you are ready to configure the security settings. You will configure the permissions on the Web Site, Interface and Webservice virtual directories to allow the built-in "Object-level Security" of Visual KPI function correctly.

You have complete control over who can see every object within Visual KPI and also who has the right to edit these objects.

Disabling inheritance for the Virtual Directories

For the Visual KPI web site you have created, perform the following steps on the <Website Name>, Interfaces, and WebService virtual directories, in that order.

  1. In the IIS Manager window, right-click the virtual directory and select Properties. The Properties dialog displays.

  2. In the Security tab, click the Advanced button. The Advanced Security Settings dialog displays.

  3. Click on the Change Permissions button is NOT selected and then uncheck Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent. Click Add to copy the inherited properties.

  4. Click OK to return to the Advanced Security Settings window.

  5. Click OK to return to the virtual directory Properties window. 

    Repeat the above steps for each of the other two virtual directories.  Do NOT perform these steps for any virtual directories contained under the Interfaces virtual directory.  Just perform this action for the three virtual directories <Website name>, Interfaces and WebService.

Disabling anonymous login for the Website

For the Visual KPI web site you have created (<Website Name>) perform the following steps on the Visual KPI web site.

  1. In the IIS Manager window, left-click the <Website Name> virtual directory.

  2. Double-click Authentication, then Disable Anonymous Authentication.

  3. Click on the Change Permissions button is NOT selected and then uncheck Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent. Click Add to copy the inherited properties.

Enabling Object-level Security and assigning Access Groups to Objects

  1. Open the Visual KPI Designer, and select Features from the Gear drop-down menu item.  Set Enable Object-level Security to TRUE.  Save the changes.

  2. Open all Groups, scroll to the right and find the column labeled Access Group List.  For all Groups enter one or more Active Directory Group names (in DOMAIN\GroupName format), Local Webserver Group names (in SERVERNAME\GroupName format).  By default, NO ACCESS is granted to these objects.  Make sure that all Groups have at least one Access group (for open access use the group name "Everyone").  Be sure to include the Home Group in your editing.

  3. Open all KPIs, Values, Trends and Tables.  Repeat Step 2 for these objects.  Each object must explicitly alow at least one Group to access it.  By default, NO ACCESS is granted to these objects. Make sure that all objects have at least one Access group (for open access use the group name "Everyone").
