Station Mapping: Creating a Web Browser Session Container

Station Mapping allows you to bind a specific station to a Web Browser (Firefox or Chrome). To create Web Browser session:

  1. Click on "New Session Container". Use the drop-down to select "Web Browser" as the session container type and give a name

  2. Creating Web Browser Session
  3. Choose Browser type from the drop down menu
    • FireFox: launches specified URL in Firefox web browser
    • Chrome: launches specified URL in Google Chrome
    • Chrome: Kiosk: launches the desired URL in a full-screen mode, onto every station mapped to that session container, without any control, tab or menu. User navigation is limited to hyperlinks on the HTML pages served
    • Chrome: Cloud Session: launches accounts.google.com as the default URL and user can open the desired URL through new tab in full-screen mode
  4. Select the icon for the selected browser by clicking the textarea
  5. Choose whether the session is persistent by clicking button next to "Retain browser changes across sessions" or "Discard browser changes after each session" for a non-persistent session
  6. Edit the default URL (if required)
  7. Click "OK" to complete the process

  8. Map Stations to Web Browser

    Once session container is created, station or video wall can be "mapped" or assigned by simply dragging-and-dropping the station or video wall icon to the Web Browser session.

    To change the session container configuration (for example, to change the web browser type), click on the session name to open the "Edit Session Container" window.


    Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
