Password protect menu - tsukraw - 10-25-2014 06:13 AM

I haven't been able to find it...
Is there a way to prevent users from going into the menu its self with a password?
I know advanced menu has a password on it but i am talking the main menu.

Hi tsukraw,

Sorry, we don't support to set password to protect the menu.
1. If you just don't want to the end users to set the important configurations. You can enable the 3-level permissions of the phone, then it will hide some important menu. Please do auto provision via below syntax.

#Enable or disable the 3-level permissions (open var); 0-Disabled (default), 1-Enabled;
#Require reboot;
security.var_enable = 1

2. If you don't want users to use menu any more. You can hide the menu softkey via web interface.
Access to web gui->DEEKEY->Programmable Key tab, change the menu softkey to another type then click confirm to accept the change.

Aww good idea!
So if i remove the menu button on the phones display can you think of any other way they would get into the menu?

If you choose the second method, you just don't let the end users access to web gui to change the softkey back is OK.
Then the end users can't get into the menu any more via phone interface. But you need to confirm it won't make them trouble.
