Domain

The Domain represents the corporate account hosted by the server infrastructure consisting, from a logical point of view, of a group of devices, users, groups, firewall rules and rules for applying permissions. The Domain groups all remote devices by organizing the folders in a tree-structure and allowing user permission assignment.

Entities that can be part of an UBIQUITY Domain are:

  • Users

    A user is an access credential allowed to log into the UBIQUITY Domain and access remote machines. Ideally, you can create a user for everyone with its own password. To access the Control Center, you need to enter the domain name and your username and password.

  • Groups

    A group is a set of users, they allow organizing users efficiently.

    Warning

    A user can belong to multiple groups.

  • Device (Remote PC)

    A “device” in this manual is a synonym of remote computer or operator panel on which UBIQUITY Runtime is installed. It can be reached using Control Center.

  • Folders

    A folder is a container of devices. With a paradigm like those of folder and documents on your computer, you can organize the devices in different folders. Folders can be added as desired.

    Hint

    A device can be part of only one folder.

  • Permissions

    Permissions are rules applied to users that allow or deny the access to remote devices.

  • Firewall policies

    Firewall policies are rules applied to VPN packets that control if certain protocols, ports, IP addresses, etc. are allowed or denied. The firewall’s policies have to be imported or defined first and used later by “applying” them to folders (and hence inherited by the devices within the folders) or directly to a single device. The policies are applied according to the logged user, so different users get different policies. Please see the chapter Firewall for a complete description of the function.
