User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

Thu Aug 17, 2006 12:31 pm

Hi

First off let me say thank you for the User Manager product. We are using it actively in our network and even as a beta we are highly impressed with it.

Will it be possible to include the capability to create and edit unlimited credit accounts? What I want to do is create accounts for PPPOE customers using the rate limit feature, but I want different levels of rate limiting at different prices. Currently as I see it you can only do this by setting a time limit as well.

Thanks
David

I think it might be on the todo list but I would like it if you could use 2 or more usermanagers on a network and they can be backups for each other, updating each others userlists.

we have thought about that, but we still researching all that. First we will try to finish the usermanger and then we will start to look on the more advanced features :wink:

This might be a long shot but here goes: Any chance of having a feature where you could specify a clients MAC address in the User Manager user setup and then have a particular highsite authenticate the MAC address and dynamically add it into the Wireless Access List?

why do you need to add it dynamically to the access list if you are doing radius MAC authentication for wireless clients?

I was not aware that you could use User Manger to do MAC authentication. Is this possible? Because that would solve a significant headache of mine.

Yes. In place of username specify the MAC address...

Next feature request:

Could you include the IP address field in the Users display so that we could quickly check what IP is assigned to a user without having to open that specific users profile up?

Perhaps a more long term feature would be the ability to choose what fields are displayed on the Users menu.

Thanks
David

thanks for the new feaures in 2.9.29.

I would like a add button somewhere on the default page. You either have to go to the users page or search for something to get an add button at the bottom.

Great Program!!

We are not planing to do that, becuase the IP address is contected with the session and not with the user. And if we would try to make some kind of workaround - we could see the IP address only for the active users.

Special thanks for Uldis Development and MT Team,

Yes, we are running USERMAN as Radius-Server and MT Router as Radius-Client to make AAA hotspot and pppoe with one interface and difference subnet work fine, just hope for next version:

1. Web interface friendly customize, i didn't see where now that files.
2. Log with optional, to many logs 'unauthe..' tryed and logged to disk.

again, thanks for your hard work :wink:

A few more requests please:

1. Could you include the fields for phone, location and email address in the main User Add area. I see you can access this through the individual user logon and command line, but not the main User Manager application

2. This might be many releases down the line, but an option to add custom fields would be awesome.

3. An option to copy an existing user profile to new one, or even better a way to setup a user "template" that new users could be created from, e.g. with custom rate limits, uptime limits etc.

Once again thanks for a great product.

1. Will be added to the next version
2. and 3. we will add to the future feature list. Most likely the 3. will be implemented faster than the 2.

Next feature request please:

A way to group sets of users for easy sorting. E.g. I would have one set of users where MAC address is username that authenticates against access list, and another where i generate hotspot user vouchers. A way to place these different entry types in different groups (folders?) would be very useful.

Thanks for the updated version - it is getting better all the time.

Next request please: Would there be any way to include a comment field in the User Manager user settings that would appear as a comment in Mikrotik when that user is authenticated (e.g. in pppoe interfaces or wireless registration)?

Maybe there will be grouping in a later version but perhaps for now you could use a prefix (e.g. group1- ; group2- ) etc then run a mangle based on the prefixes.

First go do the research then ask how. You will more likely get help if you at least get a basis to ask questions from.

Next request 1:

Ability to daily mail users their usage stats based on the email field in User Manager. I could write a script to do this, but it would be nice to provide the option for users to set this up themselves.

Next request 2:
Ability to run script when a users download amount is exceeded

ability to limit the number of users a subscriber can have

ability to have "routers" with dynamic IP addresses instead of just static (/tool user-manager router add address=192.168.0.0/24 secret=12345 ... etc)

Can the usermanager handle multiple timed billing profiles, i.e. by the minute, hourly, daily, etc. so a person could buy any item x at any qty. So you could set up a 10 min. free account, a $5 daily account, and a $20 weekly account or whatever you wanted to charge?

How about the ability to have different portal pages for virtual AP's with different policies. Say you want to have a free low-speed service available to all users, and then a faster service for those who want to pay for it. The free virtual ap has a welcome screen with aup, the secure AP has credit card access with faster speeds.

Is there a simple way for the customer to view their current usage info, bandwidth, time online or whatever, that they could easily access even if they logged out or turned their computer off and then wanted to get back to it later (popups usually get shutdown).

User Manager has a user stats section.

These are all already available features. Please check the documentation on http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/User_Manager

in future we will have it, but first we need to finish the main features of the usermanager and after that we could start to work features like this.

This has been raised as a big concern by a lot of my customers who have deployed Usermanager. Load balancing and backup server functionality would add massive value to this product.

Can you add uptime-limit and up/download-limit to batch user creation? Also can you add these attributes to credits too?

Two feature requests:
Double condition to disable accounts:
- When uptime expires
- When has passed X period (1w, 1d, 1m) sincs user first login or account creation.

Plans/user profiles.
Create user profiles for, when adding a user, just selecting the correct profile all values become set by default: rate limits, uptime, airtime...

For the rest, when you become comfortable with "userman's style", it's correct to use.

Also, but I think its more diffciult or less prioritaire, could be possible to integrate it in winbox? to have a full view of all customers, subscribers and clients and editing them as God could do (mybe root, better :P).

Yes, I totally agree, User Manager Needs expiration Date for Customers.

Rigth now, the customer only gets billed by his uptime, but there is no way to bill him for lets say one month of service.

So far that is the most notisable thing User Manager is Lacking.

FEATURE REQUEST--FOR USERMANAGER

Thu Apr 12, 2007 10:18 pm

want you Guys in Mikrotik to include a feature in usermanger that will allow the creation of credit that will allow login in some special time like say Sun,mon,tue,wed,thur,fridayand sat from 9:00am to 9:00pm daily.

Hi all ,

I am not sure that the mikrotik people are not taking this topic important or it is not that much usefull , but so far i have seen in the most
software based billing & usermanagement system these two option

1. Provision to provide service based on Day/Night shiftwise
2. Sending instant messege to any active user through a seperate
module/java based , so that admin can send any messege to the user
at any moment regarding any technical/billing or greetings.


I feel like these two options are really important coz anyone could sell
their unused night time bandwidth at a cheaper rate than the day time .

And the other option is sending messege to the client is very much important for the customer care depertment to keep in touch with the
user and for the billing dept. as well.


So, i will be waiting for a positive answer from the MT people soon.

when batching users, could you make the username/password in a format that i want, i.e. i want them all to be only numbers of 8 chars length.


thanks.

EXPIRATION DATE

Tue May 01, 2007 4:04 pm

Refardless of Uptime, a username to be disactivated (expired) after specified amount of time.

For example:

username: test
Uptime: 10h
Expires: 1 month


So the user "test" will only have 10h of uptime limit to be used in a month. After a month his account will expire.

Moreover, if uptime is specified as "0s" than he has unlimited uptime credits but his account will expire in 1 months.

Note: Not only Usermanager, but Mikrotik hotspot Local User DB also urgently needs an expiration date feature.

Any progress on the redundancy for user manager ?
We to require this functionality urgently, we thought that when the database save and load was released that it would allow you to save from one machine and load to another machine, however the users statistics such as uptime and usage don't come across, and I would think that those things are what would mostly be needed to facilitate a backup server function.
What if the router crashes ?, if you saved the DB and then restored it after a rebuild of the router you would have set all of the accounts back to zero and every account would get their whole access allocation again.

Regards
Paul

My apologies, it does seem to come across, it just doesn't seem to be reliable. Sometimes when using a script to do the save and load it doesn't save, or it doesn't load fully.

Any suggestions guys ?

It would be very handy to be able to apply rate limits to users that signed up by the automatic signup page.

An option in "customers -> signup options" to apply the rate limit to each user as they signed up would be ideal.

Tue Jul 17, 2007 4:37 am

In the interest of ensuring that as many aspects as possible are covered, here are some of the options I believe would be good.

- Metering downloads and uploads (one or both)

- Allowance for "plan" style quota's or non-expiring data packages
(example account types: 10gb per month for 12 months with no data rollover, or purchase data whenever required with data rollover)

- unmetered sites by IP or Domain (somewhere to add these in per router would be good)

- On peak and off peak quota's

- roaming and single-location accounts

Cheers,
Andrew

Re: User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

Fri Jul 20, 2007 3:25 am

Hi All!

I studied this feed and came up with some suggestions and a couple of features I feel all WISP's have the need to.

*** 1 ***
First of all I would like to quote David Savage and Uldis:
Could you include the IP address field in the Users display so that we could quickly check what IP is assigned to a user without having to open that specific users profile up?
We are not planing to do that, becuase the IP address is contected with the session and not with the user. And if we would try to make some kind of workaround - we could see the IP address only for the active users.
I understand the problem. My solution/suggestion for this is the following: Why not display a user's LAST IP and MAC? Obviously this will not be displayed under the ACTIVE USERS or ACTIVE SESSIONS pages unless the user is logged in. Under the USERS PAGE (where you add and modify user accounts), you should be able to see in one line: >username >combined traffic usage >last IP address >last MAC address.
The above is really essential for many people I know, as the IP is how we determine where the client is connected to. Just imagine companies with 200 high sites.

If the LAST IP idea won't work, is it not possible to at least let Usermanager display which NAS/Router last authenticated the user?

Please keep in mind that in certain cases a username will be used at more than one place (users stealing bandwidth eg). It would be ideal to see the MAC, High Site/NAS/Router, and IP address of each active session and the LAST IP.

The above gives me reason to nominate another feature request. Make it possible to customize the default layout of all pages. Some businesses like WISP's are more interested in users' usage, their IP's and MACs etc, where Hotspot Businesses would perhaps rather want to see fields like "Prepaid".

I would like to quote David Again:
Next request 1:

Ability to daily mail users their usage stats based on the email field in User Manager. I could write a script to do this, but it would be nice to provide the option for users to set this up themselves.

Next request 2:
Ability to run script when a users download amount is exceeded
I fully agree with both his requests, with possible add-on's:
Request 1:
It would be nice to do this from within Usermanager, with the ability to do email pre-selected fields such as usage etc. No use mailing a client in which IP pool they are for instance. Also the ability to add your company logo and signiture would be nice.

Request 2:
I really have a need for this. The ideal scenario would be to have a choice where either a script can be executed upon reach of traffic limit, or where the user will be disabled (not deleted), or the user's profile will be changed to X profile. Once it's the start of a next month, ideally the user should be reverted to the settings before this script was run. (scenario for this would when a user gets capped at say 5GB traffic, the account is put in a "capped" profile for the rest of the month. Once the new month starts, the user is automatically set back to their original profile)

This request I have already mentioned above, but would like to focus more attention to it:
The ability to let User Manager automatically reset a user's traffic usage stats upon the end of the month. There still has to be some sort of record, for when either you or the client logs in to /userman or /user, previous months' usage could be seen.

*** 4 ***
The ability to disable, enable or delete a user with a note for why.

*** 5 ***
The ability to make notes per client. It would be VERY useful to have a place where notes could be made which will act as reminders. I suggest two different kinds of notes: 1) A note which will only be displayed for this month (eg: user will pay early next week) 2) A note which will be repeated every month (eg: This user always pay the 10th of the month and they listen to streaming radio all the time)

This has been covered in other posts, and I also mailed Mikrotik Support with regards to it, but I would seriously request it again:
Due to the growing features of User Manager and more data/information to be logged, disk space is slowly but surely becoming a huge problem. I have been told this could be fixed by using a syslog server. The only problem is that a syslog server will only record logs, not some of my other feature requests such as point 5. If it could be possible to have a dedicated harddrive specifically meant for logs, it would be PERFECT.

Groups!
It was also requested else ware before, but I would like to refocus attention to it.

It would really make many people's life's a whole lot easier if this could be done:

Create groups based on Traffic Allowance, Speed limit, Burst Limit, Burst Time, IP Pool etc.

Let's take this example:
Company X has 3 packages they sell: 1) 64kbps burst to 512kbps with 2GB combined traffic usage 2) 128kbps burst to 1024kbps with 4GB combined traffic 3) 256kbps burst to 4048kbps with 10GB combined traffic.

Without a profile based screen, only someone with some IT knowledge can add new users. The ideal scenario would be to let your company's accountant be able to add users, by simply selecting the user's package, user name and password, and also be able to disable or enable the user.

One final request:
This has a little to do with David's request with regards to MAC User Authentication. It would be very useful, but not critical, to limit a user name/password to only work from a specified MAC address.


Thank you for everyone taking the time to read this lengthy post.
