The large number of diagnostic tester installations (Softing TDX.workshop) all over the world makes the efficient management of role and user authorizations particularly important. In addition, ensuring consistent, automated and centrally controlled updates of software and its diagnostic content, such as repair instructions and diagnostic trees, is of particular importance for the use of the diagnostic tester in the repair shop area. We meet these challenges with Softing TDX.admin, a backend administrator tool from the Softing TDX toolkit.
The intuitively operable user interface of Softing TDX.admin allows system administrators to create and manage roles and users. In the latest version, improved tool tips facilitate navigation in the tool and support the administrator in the creation, assignment and management of user roles. Traceability has also been improved by the administrator being automatically notified of newly registered users.
The Softing TDX.admin package also includes instructions on how to use the most common database technologies to create a role and user database (RUDB) based on the SQL standard. This means that users can already use our tools efficiently even if they do not yet have access to a company-wide database. The integration of existing database infrastructures is thus also very simple. The RUDB is linked via web services and thus independent of interfaces of the underlying open source database. The diagnostic tester thus abstractly accesses the content of the database.
Softing TDX is a universal multifunctional tool and provides a framework for the diagnosis and parameterization of vehicles and their components in cars, trucks as well as in the off-road area (e.g. construction vehicles). Its modular structure and scalability make Softing TDX the ideal tool for use in repair shops and in road tests. The use of international standards, such as for example the OTX standard ISO 13209 for diagnostic sequences or the ODX standard ISO 22901 for ECU communication and data interpretation makes it possible to continue to use and reuse OTX and ODX data already generated from various phases in the life cycle of a vehicle.
