Starting in Security Center 5.8, you can run macros with limited access rights. This eliminates the risk of a user running a macro to create a new admin user and gain greater access to the system.

What you should know

Macros have limited access rights by default in fresh installations. Systems upgrading to Security Center 5.8 run macros with administrative rights by default. If you are upgrading to Security Center 5.8, review this setting and make sure it is activated.


  1. Open Genetec™ Server Admin and click the Servers page.
  2. Click the Directory that you want to run macros on.
  3. In the Directory section, select Run macros with limited access rights.
  4. Click Save.
