User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Please Mikrotik Guys try and include time options in user manager

Posted: Mon Apr 02, 2007 12:28 pm
by danielillu
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).

Posted: Mon Apr 02, 2007 4:51 pm
by iron4umx
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.

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.

EXPIRATION DATE

Posted: Tue May 01, 2007 4:04 pm
by doush
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

by pjulian
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 ?

Regards
Paul

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.

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

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".

*** 2 ***
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)

*** 3 ***
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)

*** 6 ***
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.

*** 7 ***
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.

*** 8 ***
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.

Regards, Giepie :lol:

Hi all

It's month end, invoices needs to be sent out, logged into User Manager, exported all users to a CSV file, sent it to the accountant to bill users according to their usage, and voila, NO USAGE STATISTICS! OUCH!

Is there any way, or will it be implemented, that the stats could be exported so you can bill the client according to their usage?

This is rather critical, as I'll now have to manually do it.

Has someone ever tried writing a script to clear a client's usage stats the last day of the month, and export that month's stats to a CSV?

Giepie, that's something I would like to implement but haven't seen any way of doing it yet.

Feature Request: Show IP in Session Info on User page
We are using MAC address login for our permanent users, some clients have multiple users behind an access point so they all show as being from the same MAC address.
I'd like the user page to show "User IP" in session info the same as it does in User Manager, so the users can see which IP has used the data, at the moment there is no way to tell which IP is responsible for each session.

Session info from User Manager:
Image
Session info from User page:
Image

Any chance this could be added to a future release?

It would also be really handy if the User List in userman could show "First Name" "Last Name" fields, as with username set to MAC address its hard to identify which account belongs to what user

Hi itatwork!

From what I can see, your clients are behind a NAT firewall. This makes it impossible for the IP address of the client computer to pass through. Could you be slightly more specific about your network layout? Are you running a MT on the client side?

I do understand why it's impossible to show the client IP in the active session, that's why I requested the last IP address is shown. For me it is useful to see the client's last source IP, as this will tell me to which high site the client connects. At least I can still go to active sessions to find the IP.

Re: User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

Posted: Thu Aug 09, 2007 2:10 am
by itatwork
they aren't behind a NAT firewall, just behind a dlink access point in client mode, this makes all clients appear as having the same MAC address as the access point. If you look at the pictures i posted, there are 3 sessions with same mac address but different IP, this shows in User Manager fine, but not on the user's information page i.e. http://router_ip/user

Re: User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

This is going a bit off topic, but here goes anyway:

Back in the day we tried something similar with Senao AP's. I used PPPoE though, but had a similar problem to yours. The big problem we had, was that only one PPPoE session behind the Senao could work at a time, though more than one can be connected.

Your problem is this, your caller-id will be seen as the MAC address of the D-Link AP, and not of the NIC of the client PC. If you could replace your D-Link with a switch/hub (hypothetically) and run a cable to the high site, you wouldn't have the problem.

I would strongly suggest making use of a RB133C on the client side. In South Africa a MT solution costs almost the same as any AP/Bridge, and you get benefits such a DHCP Server, NAT Firewall etc.

Hey Giepie, I think you misunderstand, there is no probem with simultaneous connections. This is one user with multiple pc's behind a dlink ap set to client mode, so it doesn't matter that all his pc's show as being the same mac address, what i'm asking for is that the user page shows the IP field so when he logs in to check his usage he can differentiate which PC is responsible for each session, the user manager shows an ip field so it shouldn't be a major to add that field to the user page as well.

Hi

Ok, now I understand what you mean. You do have a point. That would also be a good method of accounting for companies using static routing instead of PPPoE or similar. However, I think it's a limitation of the RADIUS protocol.

As far as I know, the actual accounting is done via the traffic passing through either a active PPPoE Session, PPtP Session or a queue, and not via a registered radio or interface.

Could someone with more RADIUS experience perhaps guide us in this matter?

URGENT RE-REQUEST

Hi posted a request about a month ago regarding the export of user data by means of a CSV file.

When exporting client data to CSV, it exports all useless info such as Uptime Limit, Prepaid Time and Price. To a WISP all of this is completely useless (unless you run uncapped hotspots or something.) It is really crucial to all WISP's to be able to export the download and upload traffic, and especially the combined traffic.

Please add this very needed service to help WISPs with billing.

It will be good to add optional feature: if User Manager can chech Calling-statuin-id attribute beffore allow user to log-in.

It can be interested when dial-up users are allowed to log-in only from specific phone numbers and for ADSL
( all adsl from Huawei have specific firmware and default user guest and pass guest for PPPoE on default. Internet Service provider then only chech calling-station-id or maybe some others if username is guest and then Access-accept packet are replayed. )

Does User manager have something like calling-sation-id checking ?

1.Id like to see the mac-address of the client show up in the logs / traffic report
2.Be able to clik that mac address and bind it to the specific user and or ip address
3.Have the rate limit option available to be specified when your create a credit and be bound to the user when they buy it.

1) MAC-address is shown, when appropriate authorization method is used (e.g. Wireless mac-authentication, HotSpot MAC-authentication).
3) As far as I know, you can specify rate-limit for specific user or batch,
- you need to create credit;
- create user or batch, you can specify rate-limit together with Prepaid (created credit).

I second Giepie - my users are permanent via PPPoE and pay a monthly fee for a data cap and a penalty rate for MBs over the cap. Something similar to the report generator in userman which they can use to check their usage for the current month and so not incur excess MBs unless they choose to would do wonders for customer relations! (nb. as the cap is tx + rx a function giving the total for data passing both ways would be best. And perhaps a static field for their monthly limit as a reminder?)

The facility to trigger warning emails when usage hits, say, 70%, 90% and 100% of the cap would earn you my vote for a Nobel Prize.

Of course the ability to re-set usage automatically on the first of the month, or whenever, would be necessary for the email notification system.

Ok this is definately needed , tie a username to a mac address that way only that user specified by mac address can get on with that username. That can help eliminate multiple logins to the same account as well as make sure that someone does share thier account with thier friends. I know ther is alredy mac login authenticaion, but its not the same as still making the user login and haveing the mac-address security. I ready utilize that feature in radius manager. Hoping we can get that added sometime soon allong with simutanious users button to specifty.

1 Simutanius Users Button to specify per user how many people can use that account
2 Mac address to username authenticaion, which ties a mac address to a username so we can control people from sharing thier accounts.

I have to say the paypal integration is what has me wanting to use usermanger over radiusmanager , but it would be nice to have the best of both worlds.

Hi kvan

I was wondering what exactly you are referring to. Are you thinking in terms of
(1) "capping" users once they reach their eg 1GB CAP limit, or
(2) are you referring more toward the user's active session, ie, if the user reached 100MB in the current session, shape them down from eg 512k to 256k.

According to your example (I reckon you meant 128kbps, and not 128000KBps, cause that would be 1024mbps, which is A LOT), it seems like you are referring more toward a monthly CAP.

If this is what you are referring to, I have also requested this. What would be ideal is if the user could be capped in 3 different ways.
1) Disable the user's account
2) Assign the user to a different IP pool (so you could route the user differently or apply certain queue's)
3) Change the user's rate limits and burst limits from within UM. Ideally UM should have the ability to create profiles, so you only need to change the user to a capped profile once the limit is reached.

Please have it in version 3.0, at least. :-)

Oh, and another thing. Could those Fields be added as a comment under DHCP Leases? like First Name; Second Name; Location; Phone; Email?

Thanks.

Or even better would be to allow us to choose which fields we want to see on the screen, as I would like to see the date the user activated but don't need to see the first or last names (or macs for that matter) because you can always click on the user and get the personal info.

All Wireless ISP's (or in South Africa anyway), doesn't really care about the uptime. Users are connected 24/7. For us it would be more useful to have a feature to automatically reset a user's usage upon the last day of each month, as we need to bill according to the amount of traffic used.

I think UM is used in two main groups, as a WISP Traffic Counter and Authentication Server, and for HOTSPOT's as a Time Counter and perhaps traffic counter/limiter.

I see more and more that HOTSPOT providers want one thing, and WISP providers prefer another.

Perhaps everyone should specify if they use UM for WISP or HOTSPOT so the Programmers can get an idea of which group needs which features.

I'm testing UM to work on both scenarios simultaneously, as WISP with my fixed clients and as Hotspot for one-time users.
Both options don't exclude each other.

Usermanager CSV Script

Hi all

I tried writing a script to export the user database in CSV format at the end of each day. The sole purpose for this to be able to have a daily record of all clients' usage in graph form on Excel.

I can export the database for backup purposes, but that format does not contain the usage statistics.

If anyone managed to export to CSV from within CLI or Scripting tool, please share how you did it.

Hi SweetSunday

Perhaps you misunderstood me. I have not created such a script, as I can't seem to export as CSV format with usage etc.

It is possible to export the database or backup script by means of a script, which I have not written yet, but should be very easy to do.

Currently I do it manually once a week, which also gives me some sort of control over clients' usage. The purpose of the CSV file is for the accountants to be able to invoice clients for their usage per GB.

Have a look at the email backup script, I'm sure you'll manage to rewrite it to backup your UM DB instead. If you still need help, I'll look into it.

Hi,

I run a WISP using User Manager for both PPPoE and one-time hotspot users.

For the PPPoE users, I'd like to keep track of my invoice numbers somehow.
Currently I'm doing it by using the Comment field under the user's attributes,
which my billing script updates each time it successfully runs.

Can ether:
a.) The comment field be added in the UM web interface or,
b.) A new field for invoices (or something similar) be made, and simply displayed (uneditable, perhaps) in web interface?

I'm agree with both requests, specially first one. Why we want comments in UM -> Users if we cannot edit them through web? They are really useful, for example, to detail client's equipment or connection node.

Dear All.

I have some features which is important and i need them:

1-Credit refunds, or Reversing Credit Adding transaction:
using this feature will allow you to a reverse a transaction, so incase you have charged the user by wrong plan or the user want to refund the remaining account that can be done, so what we need exactly once you press refund you have to fill 2 fields (amount, and time) the amount means how much i want the system to deduct from the user amount, and the time is how much time i want to remove.
for example:
User              From                 Till                 Session Time  Prepaid Time   Extend Time   Money 
00:01:38:13:09:92 Oct/06/2007 15:07:26 Sep/30/2008 15:07:25 9m:5s         51w:3d                       3000.00 SAR 
                                                                   Total: 51w:3d                       3000.00 SAR 
so in this scenario i want to deduct 1000 from the price and 2 weeks from total time, so i will click on refund for this user then i have to enter 1000, and 2w so the result should look like this:
User              From                 Till                 Session Time  Prepaid Time   Extend Time   Money 
00:01:38:13:09:92 Oct/06/2007 15:07:26 Sep/30/2008 15:07:25 9m:5s         51w:3d                       3000.00 SAR 
                  Oct/07/2007                                            -2w                          -1000.00 SAR
                                                                   Total: 31w:3d                       2000.00 SAR 
2-adding one more Colum to the report to mention each transaction done by whom, i mean which customer added this amount incase i have multiple customers managing same account.

3-adding prefix filter in the reports page so i can generate reports for given customer.

4-adding users template so i don’t have to set all parameters such as uptime limit and rate limit every time for each new user i add.

Best Regards.

I've seen, using UserManager RC5, that when adding Batch users, the username is quite weird, as you can see (creating 3 vouchers).

VoucherPrefix-zzngn
VoucherPrefix-4dzct
VoucherPrefix-6zjxx

Could be possible to change that behaviour to instead of random username strings, have sequential usernames, which are more convenient for client and easier to track?

With this option, of course, initial sequence number should be selectable, because if I create VoucherPrefix-1....100, and a few days later I create more vouchers, they should start at least at VoucherPrefix-101 to avoid overwritings and errors.

In a sequential way, the previous usernames would be:
VoucherPrefix-1
VoucherPrefix-2
VoucherPrefix-3

Also, voucher print page, could be more "ecological" and allow to have 8-16 vouchers per page. Current vouchers (at 3voucher/page) are quite huge.

I know this has been requested a million times already to have customizable fields in the usermanager 'user/view' screen, and I know Mikrotik has said it will be in v3 (running rc9), but until then, is it possible to pass the username of a new hotspot user account onto the email receipt that is sent from Authorize.net to the user so that we can somehow identify them if we have billing issues since we can't see any dates, names, or email addresses in the user/view screen. It doesn't help to search either when you can't search by anything on the receipt.

I get about 1 or two per week that claim they couldn't log in and want a refund, and after a few emails back and forth to ask them their username. They always forward their receipt. I would be able to find them quickly if i had their username already (or if i could search by their name).

Also, am I the only one that would like to be able to click on the user and see the date the user signed up on?

create a profile in your routeros hotspot, give it a name and set it to your desired simultaneous number u need
put the profile name under GROUP in usermanager, it will work

Hi kewlkeed

I sort of agree with your statements. Apparently a new release of UM will come out one of these days with many customizable functions.

I recently discovered the power of scripting on UM. Since the GUI doesn't offer you that much, I wrote scripts as follow:
1) to send me daily bandwidth usage stats (in the form of users who reached 50%, 75%, 90% and users who got capped) via email
2) to send me and the client an email the moment the client goes up a percentage level ie he goes TO 50% or from 50% to 75 or when he gets capped
3) month-end script which sends me all clients' stats for that month sorted by their percentage used level, and once the mail has been sent, all usage will be cleared. (currently I'm clearing stats manually just incase I never get the mail). I'm working on rather creating a file output in CSV format and mail the file. If for some reason I don't get the mail (smtp server not reachable etc), I could at least copy the file manually.

These scripts I mainly got working due to a excelent scripter, qnect. I took his script and rewrote it to my needs with great success.

I really wish UM will provide more details you can edit. Currently we use the comment field as a variable to "remember" certain details. If you wish, I could past more info on these scripts. Once I'm completely done with these scripts, I'll clean them up and place them on the Wiki.

I also prefer to use one platform for everything. I even thought of using the Hotspot service, rewrite the entire HTML code in order to "host" my own accounting suite. Unfortunately I haven't done html coding for about 16 years, so I have to learn from scratch again. I reckon the ideal solution would be if MT could open up the source code for UM in MT scripting language. This way you still need a MT license, but you can do with your software as you please. Also more "variables" per user is needed, as it is difficult to "pick" info from the comment field, especially if the length isn't always the same of your values.

Hi all!

I'm more than happy to post my version. Please let me know if you want mine or if the original is sufficient.

I'm still tiding up mine a bit so I could put it on the WIKI. I'm busy working on a way to remember the clients' original subscription so if you add gb's during the month, the end of month script will basically put all clients' back to their original package. I just wish UM had more variables to work with as both me and Qnect (Krige) rely on the comment field for our variables. I'm trying to make use of a CSV file and extract data to and from it, but it gets real complicated real fast.

I agree, UM needs to be made more WISP friendly!

Have a good one, G

I took a look on the scripts yesterday and tried to adadept it for our needs.
After fighting a bit with the script editor ant the scripting host, i got a "fastshot" up and running.

Can anybody say why there is no syntax highlighting in the editor an why you don't get ANY information why a script isn't running?

Is there a hidden feature to get debug informations ?

Hi Heiko

Unfortunately there is no debugger or syntax highlighting in the editor. I have also requested the syntax highlighting feature, as it's already working in MT3.x CLI. I debug by hashing out certain lines (put a # on the left of a newly added line) and remove the hashes till I find the problem.

You can also test your lines in the CLI and by using tabs (press the tab key) to see your valid entries.

I have used /log info "script working untill this point"

and that will give you a rough idea of where it is running to untill it stops. However i used this in the 3.X should work in 2.9.X but not sure. Good luck. -Jordan

I asked in http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=25618 if it is possible to set User Manager to provide differenrt IP for client who connects in different segments of router network and it seems it is not possible.

So I suggest feature:

1) let User Manager give different IP regarding which segment of routed network user is connected to, ro

2) let MT use DHCP server assigning IP's without User Manager but that it may check in User Manager if MAC requesting IP is authorised to get an IP. If mac is authorised, then DHCP should assing IP as provided in local DHCP leases and mark it as approved by User Manager. If not, it should decline assigning IP to the client, or assign dynamic IP form other pool.

Hi pedja

In UM it is possible to make use of IP pools. On each NAS (Network Authentication Server) or Mikrotik, you could use the same IP Pool name, but with a different IP range.

The other option is to specify a default IP pool to be used ON the NAS, and not type anything in the Client IP or Client Pool text boxes within UM.

Hope it's making sense, if not, please be a bit more descriptive of your situation.

In Um user password is visble and clearly readable to customer. To maintain secracy user password display shoud be in ***** form or ....... form. The customer password is desplayed in the same format. The users may not be comfortable with the idea of someone else seeing their password. The administrator has access to user password and in case of unauthoreised usage there can be cofusion

How about the ability to specify a type of account instead of having to enter specific information for each customer account on the b.w. limitations? So, say, a global specification, like Fast with say a 3M/1M burst, with 1.5M/512K steady. That way, if Fast were to change due to say, competitive reasons, one wouldn't have to go in and change each customers account, just change the global specification for Fast.

The main reason I use Mikrotik is becos of the Usermanager. I use it with the hotspot to service my clients and it works fine.

Nice product!

When clients come for registration I assign a username for them which they use to login at the hotspot but when the credit limit is reached they have to come to my office to extend the credit.

I want a scenerio where a user will be able to add more credit to his/her account before the credit limit is reached. Even when credit limit is reached.
Probably through http://router_ip/user or at the hotspot login.

I usually make vouchers with a specified credit limit available for sales around the town for sales, so I want the registered users to buy the vouchers and use it to extend their credit limit.

Looking forward to a feature like this.

It would also be really handy if the User List in userman could show "First Name" "Last Name" fields, as with username set to MAC address its hard to identify which account belongs to what user
Or even better would be to allow us to choose which fields we want to see on the screen, as I would like to see the date the user activated but don't need to see the first or last names (or macs for that matter) because you can always click on the user and get the personal info.

Thats great solution, NEW FIELD for MAC adress, but i wanted to use manager with My DHCP, and its impossible to see what user is behind..... but nobody can remember every MAC adress :? :? I'm waiting for this and i'll use the UM :D but now better is editing leases in WINBOX :)

yea instead of Pool name there should be a drop down option to select pool & below it second drop down option to select ip address from the selected pool. this way it will be very easy to assign ips or pool & also no one will assign same ips for more then 1 users.

There is no straight way for User Manager to know, which IP belong to each IP pool, as the pool may be located on completely different router.

User Manager could check IP pools of the local router. But it would not help if the Hotspot/PPP is located on remote router.

so when we put router ip we get webbox & i don't think anyone use webbox, so can you change it to userpage?

example when user open http://10.0.0.1 instead of http://10.0.0.1/user they can login & check thier accounts.
I think this will make life more easy :D

Ability to do self registration(without credit card) but would need a voucher/prepaid card to load up the account to be able to get online.

can you place a tick box beside caller id so that if the tick box is ticked user macid will be automatically placed to his caller id when he will login for 1st time & also make that box default ticked when we add new user.

this will increase security my users change thier account with each other & i cannot assign everyones macid manually.

As an Internet services provider we have to deal with complaints of our users, for that we have complaints management. So, Now we have to add every users on both database MT & complain Management. So, it would be great if you can add onemore more button of complaints in which we can add complaints of our users in same database & it would be great if complaint logs are saved in user details even if they r done.

eg.
search user box:[ ]

Search Result:
userid username phone problem comment

this option will be simple & great for operator to add complaints
in problem column you can add a dropdown of complaints which is editable through parent login
like UNPLUG, RTO=requesttimeout, CONFIG, RANGE, DISCONNECTION etc & in comments we can add time or something else specified by the user on call.

when child customers will login they can check complaints & solve them they can have options like this.
Pending Complaints : 1
userid username phone problem comment engineer tickbox1 tickbox2 tickbox3

Here in place of engineer we can have dropdown
tickbox1= Checked (Engineer has visited & checked the problem)
tickbox2= Pending (User was not at home or may be work is pending more)
tickbox3= Solved (Work is done) after this complaint should be disappear from complaint list but we can check complaints in user details.


Thanks alot

This looks like a feature out of User Manager's scope. As it is not very easy to implement, nor very important, it will not be available in near future.

Right now you can use comment field to store user complaints. Not very convenient and advanced way of complaint tracking. But a very general way though. For example, you can store comments of two users as:
complaint="Description of a complaint" status=active
and
complaint="Description of another complaint" status=solved
You can then track all active complaints by using advanced search for users with comment is like "status=active".

We can add one or a couple of new fields to a user - it is very easy to do. But how would it be different from the comment field?

Please, take into account, that many customers would like to have completely different attributes for user entries. So your suggestions should be very general to match other needs also.

We could add a custom drop down field, having values "User Category 1", "User Category 2", ..., "User Category 5". Then you can change the displayed name of categories, using translation files: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/User_Manager/4/Languages . In that way these categories can be used in a general way, to divide users in different groups, by having different category names, based on particular customer needs.

If such a feature would make your work more convenient, we could possibly implement it.

We would like to hear comments from other users - would this general-purpose drop-down box be useful? Is anybody already using language support by translating the language file to a local language?

There is one issue that have not being implemented and placed in user manager. i have observed that, even if you disable a client/username, that user still counts.

let me explain myself very well.
A user logged in for 2days and inform us that he is going out for vacation and will be back in 2months time, that we should disable his account so that when he comes back he will use it and call us to activate it.

When you disable the user in Usermanager, the account still counts witout being used.

Can mikrotik work on this issue so that when an account is disabled, it stops at that time and start counting only when it becomes active again by activating it in userman.

Other things i suggest mikrotik to do in user manager are as follows;

Assuming someone asked for like 1hr browsing and the account is created without any time limit, that is uptime limit is 0s. after the person must have used like 30mins and logs out, when he comes back to log in using the same username/password, the next day, it will show credit limit has reached. This also happens even when the user shuts down his computer witout loggin out from the browser. Which i thought idle time out should have solved.

I noticed another issue, why is it that if you create a user in hotspot thru winbox, and incidentally the same name is created in UM with a different password, that user cannot login with the account created in UM. Again, users created with UM displays R in front of the account when u view active usres in hotspot using winbox while the users created with winbox does not display such R.

I want Mikrotik to implement timed option in their UM, where a user can browse based on time band, Morning hours (6am - 9am), evening hours, Night and wkends so that users can choose time band that suites them.

Thanks

if you create a user in hotspot thru winbox, and incidentally the same name is created in UM with a different password, that user cannot login with the account created in UM.
That's how it is designed - first local HotSpot user table is checked, if user is found there, no request is sent to User Manager.
I want Mikrotik to implement timed option in their UM, where a user can browse based on time band, Morning hours (6am - 9am), evening hours, Night and wkends so that users can choose time band that suites them
That's already available in version 4.

Assuming batch of users are to be created or generated and printed, is there an option to make it available to all generated users.

Is it possible to only upgrade/update the UM package in MT without updating/upgrading the whole OS or packages. Can someone downgrade the UM back to its old version without loosing all the data in the UM.

I want Mikrotik team to also implement the import/export option in UM so that transfer of database is made easy in MT.

Thanks

One more option request in user Private information now we have phone option in user it would be great if we have mobile options also coz when sms notice & warning system will be implemented in future there are few numbers which doesn't accept sms like landlines phones etc. so for sms we can use mobile option.

Thanks.

can someone only upgrade the user manager package alone without upgrading other packages and still retain the data in the user manager. Will downgrading still make it possible not to lose the data created in UM, I am asking because of the issues with v4.0 before it is rc

Please, i need an urgent response to this question.

thanks

support for the ability for profiles to exist for set period of days, not uptime. eg. 512k/128k 5gb 1 month. please let me know if i've overlooked this functionality.

and new user account creation via the portal of course.

can you put total number of users in Users Button?? like in A session Button & add 2 more buttons below Users.

100 Users
80 A Users = Enabled Users
20 D Users = Disabled Users

& total numbers of search result in search button.

can we search date wise instead of page numbers in sessions & users sessions

Thanks

can you place a tick box beside caller id so that if the tick box is ticked user macid will be automatically placed to his caller id when he will login for 1st time & also make that box default ticked when we add new user.
It is already in our feature request list and will be implemented.
Is there an estimated implementation time for this feature?

Also it would be very useful that this feature could extend to self sign ups. Example:
User views hotspot portal, user elects to pay for access. User performs sign up process. User submits payment, payment accepted, user directed to login, user logs in and MAC is recorded and associated with user account,
If MAC auth is selected as option on hotspot, now as MAC is associated with user account, user is no longer prompted for [name/password] until time runs out or if MAC changes, this would solve some other issues and perhaps create a couple, but the usefulness of this feature would be awesome.

Hi all

I just tried User Manager it looks good but could not find Caller ID when I tried to add any user, I tried RouterOS in x86 with 4.1 v 0 licence level, is there it or I am wrong? I would like to ask you if there is any way to redirect user that spent their credit at any page or it is not possible to tell them that they need to pay for extended time or just to get them disconected?

Thanks in advance!

1) limit per day. one user can download 200MB per day, not more.... 200Mb another day etc.
2) more profiles attached on one user. example: i wanna set 1Mbps speed in time interval 00:00-00:06, and another speed 2Mbps in time interval 00:06-00:00

Hello
I want to ask one more thing too if its possible.

We are giving wireless client devices to clients to connect to our antennas for for some time, if user will not pay for 1 month we are going and taking this client device from him.

1. is it possbile to see in reports how long client didnot payed, or when he payed for last time?
2. we are selling internet local speed 2mbps and 512 global speed for 10 usd.
When i am limiting user i limit local speed from userman but global from router using queues which i am creating manualy.

Global speed queue rule is . i am adding all local IP addresses to paket mark and passthrough no and last packet mark is 0.0.0.0/0 wich is global.

is it possible to add this rule to usermanager profile, or creat this profile in user manager?

JP_Wireless, make sure you are running the user manager test package. All new functions should be there.

asus, currently there is no too much you can change at User Manager login page.

Can the user manager log be kept in a separate file, visible in Winbox's file list, that can then be easily deleted. Deleting hundreds of thousands of entries with the methods described on this forum takes forever and is extremely unfunny. :?

Gareth, thank you for the suggestion (we have similar ideas about it), currently you cannot do it, perhaps it will be possible in the future.

Rabbit, add signup link to the login page, the current way how to move trial user to signup.

usermanager can do time-limit and traffic amount limit.

when user login his page he can see how much time (i.e, time-limit) he is given.

but he cant see how much traffic he is given (i.e, trffic-limit) .

is there any option to show the user how much traffic limit he is given, so that he can calculate his future use.

Hi
i think its will be very usefull to add "local adress list" parameter to User Manager/Users for example in my network I have UM on border router with QoS and limitation based on PCQ and adress lists of clients,
but address lists I use for filtering, redirect to any web pages and many diferent things on this border router. will be great if i can use something to add "remote IP to" address list on the same router with "user menager"

for this moment user menager sent "adress list" to radius client but this client only terminating pppoe sesion

I hope that everyone understands what I mean


PS this is a big problem to add this add on for UM ?
