You need a local user on the device to:

  • Extend the user interface with in-room controls.

  • Extend the user interface to include video sources that are connected through an external Cisco TelePresence Video Switch.

  • Give users access the device’s web interface or API without being signed in through Control Hub.

You can manage local users from the Local Users page on the device’s web interface. All local users are listed here, and you can see which user roles are assigned to the user.

Only the Admin user has privileges to create and delete users.

Overview of User Roles

Users with an Admin role can:

  • Have unrestricted access to the device's local web interface.

  • Access the API over SSH, serial connection, or HTTP(S).
