Prevent users from editing Workspace

Go to solution

Hello to all, 


I want to prevent user of my Veristand project form edit the Workspace (.nivscreen files). 

I searched the official NI documentation but could not find anything about it. 

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?

I'm using Veristand 2019 R2.

Thanks for your reply ZYOng.


If i set privilege levels as "Operator" it prevent users to edit ssdf.

I have tried to launch my project in Operator Mode, calling the following command in cmd window:


"C:\Program Files\National Instruments\VeriStand 2020\VeriStand.exe" /nivsprj

"C:\Users\Public\Documents\National Instruments\NI VeriStand 2020\Examples\Stimulus Profile\Engine Demo\Engine Demo.nivsprj" /operateScreen


But it doesn't work.

I believe that the command line method only works for UI Manager.

UI Manager and legacy workspace are two different executables. The former is built using C# and the latter is LabVIEW. They have their own user management. You need to configure using the legacy User Account Manager.

So should I open the project with the Veristand2018 or earlier?

You still can configure the user account from the legacy project explorer.

From the VeriStand Editor >> File >> Preferences, under General tab enable Show Legacy Project Window.
