UM v5 test

by gmsmstr » Fri Jul 16, 2010 7:40 pm

Using the latest v5b4 packages ..

WE have profiles for users to select. Then we have a Validity and a uptime limit in the limitations. If the profile has a limitation, what is the difference between the validity and uptime limit in this instance?

Specifically, I want users time to start NOW, then set the uptime to say 4 hours. Now if they logout, then does their time still rack up? In the old v3 UM, if they logged out, they could use one hour today, one hour next week etc. If I setup the validity to 4h as well, does that mean we have a hard "end time" and their uptime limit don't really mean much?

I would assume then the example would be that you can create and account with 5 hours of time that the user could use within a week by specifying a 1w validity and a 5h uptime? Assuming they logout...

Is this a correct assumption, or not?
