ODI Assignments

Overview

There are three methods that can be used to assign equipment to an ODI screen. Two of the methods are centrally managed and the third method is configured locally at each individual ODI screen.

ODI Equipment can be assigned to either a device such as a tablet or PC or a specific DataXchange user regardless of the device used to access the ODI. Equipment assigned in these manners will configure the ODI for that device or user to display that equipment when the ODI loads. The equipment can still also be changed locally from the Equipment Configuration screen on the ODI.

Note: The list of Equipment centrally assigned to a user will take priority over the equipment centrally assigned to the device the user has logged in with. If neither the user nor the centrally managed methods have equipment assignments defined, the equipment selected on the ODI Configuration screen will be used.
