Default Submitter Name Format : $(user)

Postby eqko » 12 Aug 2015, 09:34

So with our computers getting generic names it would be nice to see who actually submitted the job.
I noticed the $(User) variable, but I'm not quite sure how to use that.

if I choose that, all I get upon submitting is User.
I figured out I can set it manually in ../cmdRC/RpRcCmd.conf (where userName was set to User),
but my guess is that info can be set somewhere in an interface (either client, server or remote controller ?)

The net job list contains a column Submitted by; it will always show the RenderPal account used to submit the job ($(User) works the same way). If you need to know who submitted which job, create a user account for each user.

I have created acount per user (to allow permissions control, nice going there).

Am I correct in assuming that the way you sign in with the Remote Controller is where $(user) get's set and fills in the user/pass in the RpRcCMD.conf ?

It could be the error is on my part, but I thought I had signed in every user in RemoteController with their own user/pass. Might be I didn't if above is the case ...

That is pretty much correct, yes. $(user) simply stands for the RenderPal user (and has nothing to do with the system user).
