About Users in Web Control Center

In an animation studio, there are people using Harmony who will be assigned different tasks, such as ink and paint or compositing. Normally, you should create a different user for each one. This way, the person assigned to ink and paint will only have access to the Paint module and not to other features that are not relevant to their work.

Anyone who uses Harmony must have a login name in order to run any of the modules. When using Harmony in standalone mode, there is no username or password required. The Harmony login is independent from the computer session login.

On Windows, by default, only the usabatch and BATCH users are created. However, you should not use them for your staff. These should be kept for Harmony Server when performing background operations, such as batch processing—see .

Users connecting to the database through Web Control Center should have a password as it's more secure when accessing via the Internet. For Web Control Center users, it is recommended to create the users through Web Control Center so you can set the password.

IMPORTANT: Before making the Web Control Center public, set passwords for all users so that deletion of assets are restricted.
