More info added to avoid flipping back and forth with the docs.

Superuser

This user is an administrative user. This user does not have cameras to manage nor can it see any cameras. Its purpose is to manage Admin accounts settings and limitations, view system logs, and manage system configuration.

The Superuser page can be accessed at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/super. The Login button will become Red to signify that you are at the correct gate for Superuser access.

The login to use would be found in the super.json file located in the Shinobi installation directory. By default this is /home/Shinobi. The default login is as below.

Username : [email protected]
Password : admin

Passwords in super.json are saved as MD5 strings.

Admin

This user cannot manage system configuration. They are able to do as much as the Superuser allows in their set limitations. By default this user can manage how much space they use on the disk and how long to keep their data. They can also create and manage Sub-Accounts.

The Admin page can be accessed at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/admin. The Login button will become Blue to signify that you are at the correct gate for Sub-Account management and, in future, other administrative tasks.

The Camera Management page (Dashboard) can be accessed at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. The Login button will become Green to signify that you are at the correct gate for Dashboard access.

The login to use would be the account created in the Superuser panel.

During the Shinobi installation process the user can decide to create an Admin account. If you missed the generated details you can find or delete them in the Superuser panel. You can change the login address once logged in as the account in the Settings menu in the Dashboard.

Data for this account type is saved in the SQL database instead of a JSON file like Superusers.

Sub-Account

This account is made by an Admin and is not able to manage space used or how long to keep data. This user cannot access the Admin panel. This user can only do as much as the owning Admin account permits. This account can be restricted from deleting videos, watching certain cameras, or even creating cameras.

Sub-Accounts can only access the main dashboard and streamer views at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.

Data for this account type is saved in the SQL database like Admins instead of a JSON file like Superusers.
