Smart Stations


A Smart Station represents a workstation, physical or virtual, on which the Buddy is deployed. Smart Station authorizes the connection between the Buddy and the Control Room.

The Smart Stations page enables you to provision and manages Smart Station entities. The purpose of Smart Station is to allow you to connect the Buddy to the Control Room on one workstation only. The name of this Smart Station should be the same as given to that standard machine. At a given point in time, the Buddy can use only one smart station.


To access and perform operations on the Smart Stations page, you need to have appropriate permissions for this entity.
