Open Platform Communications (OPC) Server Plugin Guide

OPC Server 4.0

To make sure that you can view Security Center entities on OPC Clients, you must configure the user whose credentials will be used to connect the OPC Server to Security Center.

What you should know

The user whose credentials are used to connect the OPC Server to Security Center determines which entities are exposed to OPC Clients. For a Security Center entity to be exposed, the user must have the user privilege to view that entity, and they must be an administrator of the partition that the entity is a member of.
