Changing Users

You must be logged into LDMS to use it—there is no concept of a guess account in LDMS. The current user is displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the screen.

To change to a different user after logging in, click Administration > Session Lock from the LDMS menu bar, or press Ctrl + Shift + L. This is also how you would lock LDMS if you need to leave a computer station unattended. By Default, LDMS will automatically lock and require a user name and password after 30 minutes of inactivity.


If you click the Cancel button on the login screen, LDMS will close. If there is unsaved work on the screen, you will not be given the opportunity to save it.
