User Login

User login provides job restriction by user, in contrast to the Job accounting
feature, which assigns privileges by division or department. A maximum of 100
login user names and passwords can be created and stored in the printer driver
and registered on the printing system. For some models, the User Login

is not supported.

Users are identified by user name and password. The user name can be in the
user principal name UPN format: username@domain.com. This feature limits
printing privileges to specified users for secure printing and accounting. The
number of pages printed by each user is tracked by the printing system.

Users added in the printer driver must also be manually registered at the
printing system’s operation panel.
