How do I apply the administrator password in SilkMeter?

Passwords can only be set when applying a Grant against a licence within the SilkMeter Policy Administrator. To set the password purely for an administrator, set a Grant against the 'SilkmeterAdminAccess' licence. This will then ensure that all other users have User Mode access only.

To add the Administrator grant do the following:-

  1. Open the Policy Administrator, then select the 'SilkmeterAdminAccess' policy.

  2. If Policy Administrator is in User mode switch to Administrator mode.

  3. Click Edit, then click Edit Grants.

  4. On the Edit Grants dialog ensure that 'User' is selected in the 'Grantee' dropdown.

  5. Type 'Administrator' in the textfield to the right of the Grantee dropdown.

  6. Type the Administrator password in the User Password box, then re-type the password in the Confirm Password box.

  7. Ensure that there are no restrictions in the Date, Day and Hour fields.

  8. Click the arrow in the 'Unlimited Licenses' box to select unlimited licenses.

  9. Click the arrow in the 'Unlimited Usage' box to indicate unlimited usage

  10. Click Add Grant, then click OK to save your changes and exit the dialog.
