The CTCT App Store is designed to work on the Caterpillar Trimble Control Technologies LLC device. While the CAC App Store requires username and password authentication, the CTCT App Store works differently and authorization to applications is based on the build number provided by Trimble.
This article describes this app store, and explains how to utilize some of its features.
The CTCT App Store
To accomplish correct authentication, a group hierarchy is created to map to specific build names as well as provide an All Capability for the CTCT app stores.
- Navigate to App Store->Groups.
- You should see a group hierarchy.
Access to apps will depend upon in which group it is placed:
- CTCT - Both Caterpillar and Trimble devices will see apps in this group
- CTCT/TD520_Cat - Only Caterpillar devices will see these apps.
- CTCT/TD520_Trimble - Only Trimble devices will see these apps.
Please review the group documentation on how to fully administer groups.
Since "users" with passwords are not created via the CTCT App Store, registration and security is provided through Registered Devices.
- Navigate to ECOMMERCE->Registered Devices.
- In CTCT use case, Registered Devices DO NOT need to be created before access, as they are automatically created when the device is first used by the end user on the CTCT device.
Disabling a Registered Device
To prevent a device for further access the App Store, DO NOT delete the device, as it will automatically add itself back on the next instance that the App Store is used. Instead, disable the device to prevent it from further access the App Store.
This can be achieved in one of two ways:
By editing the device
- Click on the Edit icon from the main view.
- Select Inactive for its State field.
- Click on the Save button.
By showing the device
- Click on the Serial Number link from the main view.
- Click on the Make Inactive button at the bottom of the page.
- Confirm the action.
