Before you can configure and use KiwiVision™ video analytics, you must create the KiwiVision™ Manager role in Config Tool.

What you should know

  • The KiwiVision™ Manager role manages and distributes the video analytics requests to the available KiwiVision™ Analyzer roles, stores the events generated by these Analyzer roles, and handles the report requests sent from Security Desk.
  • You can only have one instance of a KiwiVision™ Manager role per system.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, click Add an entity (), and select Plugin.
    The plugin creation wizard opens.
  3. On the Specific info page, select the server on which the plugin role is hosted, the plugin type, and the database for the plugin role, and then click Next.
    If you do not use expansion servers in your system, the Server option is not displayed.
  4. On the Basic information page, specify the role information:
    1. Enter the Entity name.
    2. Enter the Entity description.
    3. Select the Partition for the plugin role.
      If you do not use partitions in your system, the Partition option is not displayed. Partitions are logical groupings used to control the visibility of entities. Only users who are members of that partition can view or modify the role.
    4. Click Next.
  5. On the Creation summary page, review the information, and then click Create, or Back to make changes.
    After the plugin role is created, the following message is displayed: The operation was successful.
  6. Click Close.


The KiwiVision™ Manager role is displayed in the entity browser.
