General Project Settings Section


Carry out advanced configuration options such as enabling a super user account, under the i4scada Studio General Project Settings section.

The General Project Settings section allows the user to configure some more advanced options for the project. The option to enable the super user account, providing a super user name and a super user password, can help when needing to override the security settings. The option to enable the single user database access is useful when the database needs to be accessed using a single set of credentials.


General project Settings panel

The options listed in the General Project Settings section are:

UI Option


Enable Super User

Toggles the Super User account on or off.

Super User Name

The user name for the Super User account.

Super User Password

The password for the Super User Account. The Edit Password dialog will pop up when the Value cell of the option is clicked.

Enable single user database access

Toggles on or off the ability to access the database using a single set of credentials.


For a better understanding of this setting, let's take as an example, a situation where the SQL Server and i4scada Server can be accessed from multiple machines.

When this setting is disabled, multiple users can apply changes to the same project. To avoid conflicts, this setting can be enabled, in order to ensure that one single client has exclusive access to a project. If another user tries to access the project, at the same time, his / her request will be restricted, until the first user exists the visualization.


To enable/disable this setting, the Studio application needs to be restarted.
