DriveWorks Pro 16: Login [send feedback...]

Login Module

The Login module provides a login box for access to the Projects within the loaded Group.

The credentials to login to the Group are taken from the Security Settings applied in DriveWorks Administrator

DriveWorks will always require a valid login to gain access to the Projects, however this module can be copied and modified to provide pre-population of the credentials fields, or to auto-login.

This module appears by default on the Specify Page (see Default Web pages section in the topic Modules)

  • Next Page after Logon- Default value is blank this will navigate to the Home page when Cancel is selected from the Specification Navigation Module.
