Password Protect Basic Settings - TRIO 8800

Is there a way to password protect or hide the basic settings on a TRIO 8800?

 

Primarily looking to restrict user access to call rate.  We provision the call rate but users could change it, which they have.

 

UC Software Version 5.5.3.3517

 

Thanks

Sean

Hi @

 

I don´t think you can PW protect that menu, but maybe hiding this setting is an option for you?

Hello @Sean.Stanley66,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

 

The community's VoIP FAQ contains this post here:

Aug 13, 2015 Question:Can access to the Phones Basic settings menu be restricted?

Resolution: UC Software 5.4.0 added the new up.basicSettingsPasswordEnabled="1"Parameter to prompt for a Password.

Thanks, Steffen.

 

Can anyone verify this works on a TRIO 8800? (5.5.3.3517)

I pushed this setting to my lab TRIO but there is an error showing in the Settings - Status - Platform - Configuration.

 

I didnt see any dependencies when looking at this command via the admin guide.  I havent had a chance to dig deep just yet.

 

Thanks

Sean

Hello @Sean.Stanley66,

I literally just imported the unzipped CFG file I attached and get prompted for a Password when trying to access the Basic Menu on a Trio running the current 5.7.1.4133 Rev AB release.

Hi Steffen,

 

Thanks for testing.  Did you upload an actual CFG file attachment that I missed?

I dont see one, sorry.

 

Thanks

Thanks, Steffen.  The CFG file has the exact same command I'm pushing.

 

Let me reset my TRIO and start with defaults, then load your config.

 

I will mark your reply as the solution if this works.

 

Thanks

Sean
