SALTO credentials are managed by Security Center. To import and store the credentials, you must first select a card format.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, select the plugin role from the entity browser, and click the Properties tab.
  3. Select a card format from the Create Salto credentials as list:
    Custom Salto format
    (Default) This card format represents SALTO credentials for use by the SALTO ProAccess SPACE-based system.
    Card Serial Number (CSN) is a standard Security Center card format used by SALTO credentials in a system that has readers from multiple manufacturers.
    IMPORTANT: Limitations of the CSN format can cause a cardholder synchronization with SALTO ProAccess SPACE to fail if any SALTO credentials contain card data exceeding 32 bits. When this happens, delete the failed credentials from the SHIP server to continue the synchronization.

  4. Click Apply.


During the next synchronization with the SALTO system, the card format you selected here will be applied to newly-imported credentials.
NOTE: If you want to change the card format after synchronization, you must delete and recreate the plugin role.
