  With the development of information technology in data processing devices, it has become possible to install applications in data processing devices and to uninstall applications from data processing devices.

  In particular, when a variety of functions can be added to the data processing apparatus by installing a variety of applications, a method for restricting the use of functions by restricting menu display items as in Patent Document 1, for example, is already present. Even though it is possible to restrict the use of a function that has been performed, if another function is added later, it cannot be reflected in the menu display data. In order to restrict the use of functions added later, it is necessary to reset the menu display data corresponding to each user. Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to improve the operability by making it possible to restrict the use of functions added later without taking such a setting work.

  Further, as in Patent Document 1, in the method of restricting the use of functions by restricting menu display items, after user authentication is performed once, only functions defined corresponding to the authenticated user are used. Not available. In order to display functions exceeding the user's authority on the menu, it is necessary to reset the menu display data of the user again. Alternatively, it is necessary to once stop using the device and authenticate again as another user. Therefore, as a different problem, an object is to improve operability by enabling user authentication to be performed again more easily in order to make it possible to use a function that cannot be used with the authority of the user at that time.

  The data processing apparatus according to the present invention is a data processing apparatus having one or more applications, and uses the application according to the security level associated with the application selected from the one or more applications. It is characterized by having a judging means for judging whether authentication is necessary and an authenticating means for executing an authentication process for authenticating a user as an application is selected when the authentication is required.

  Alternatively, the data processing device according to the present invention is a data processing device having one or a plurality of functions, wherein the first authentication means for executing a first authentication process for authenticating a user, and the first When a user authenticated by the authentication process uses a function selected from the one or more functions, a determination unit that determines whether authentication is necessary; And a second authentication unit that executes a second authentication process for authenticating the user as a function is selected from the plurality of functions.

  Alternatively, the data processing apparatus according to the present invention is a data processing apparatus having one or a plurality of functions, wherein the first authentication means executes a first authentication process for authenticating a user, and the first authentication process. A determination unit that determines whether the user authenticated by the first function can use the function selected from the one or more functions, and a second authentication process for authenticating the user if the function is not available. And 2 authentication means.

  According to the present invention, it is possible to improve the operability by providing usage restrictions for added functions.

  Or according to this invention, in order to enable the function which cannot be used with the user's authority at that time, user operability can be improved by enabling user authentication to be performed again more easily.

  FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating a functional configuration in the controller of the multifunction machine 106 or 107. The controller has other functional configurations, but the description is omitted here.

  Reference numeral 301 denotes an authentication processing unit. The authentication processing unit 301 performs authentication processing by communicating with the authentication server 101 or 102. Further, after the authentication process, the user name, mail address, security level, etc. after authentication are held. In the present invention, the authentication processing method is not limited to that via an authentication server. In addition, the authentication process is not necessarily performed based on user input, but authentication may be performed using predetermined authentication information, and information input by the user may not be required.

  Reference numeral 302 denotes an application control unit. After the user authentication is performed by the authentication processing unit 301, the application control unit 302 compares the security level associated with the authenticated user with the security level associated with the application desired by the user, and executes the application.

The application ID is an identifier that identifies an application. The security level is a security level corresponding to each application. For example, the row 501 means that in order to use an application whose application ID is “Box”, the user must have “scan” and “box” as security levels. The records included in the security level table are not limited to this example.

  When a new application is installed in the multifunction peripheral, the application ID and security level of the added application are registered in the security level table. The security level may be set manually by the administrator of the multifunction peripheral, or may be set according to attached information attached to the added application.

  Hereinafter, information processing according to the present invention will be described. FIG. 6 is a flowchart illustrating processing executed by the multifunction machine 106 or 107. This information processing is performed by the CPU 201 executing a control program corresponding to the flowchart of FIG.

  First, in the authentication standby state, the multifunction peripheral displays a first authentication screen and waits for an operation by the user to start (step S601). FIG. 7 is a diagram illustrating an example of the first authentication screen. The first authentication screen in FIG. 7 is displayed on the LCD display. Reference numeral 701 denotes an authentication screen. Reference numeral 702 denotes an input unit for inputting a user ID. Reference numeral 703 denotes an input unit for inputting a password. Reference numeral 704 denotes a login button. When the user ID is input to the input unit 702 and the user inputs the password to the input unit 703 and the login button 704 is pressed by the user, the multi-function device executes a first authentication process (step S1). S602). In the first authentication process, the authentication processing unit 301 of the multifunction peripheral transmits the user ID and password input by the input units 702 and 703 to the authentication server 101 or 102. The authentication screen 701 is displayed until the authentication process is completed. If authentication is performed using predetermined authentication information, the authentication screen is not displayed.

  Upon receiving the authentication result from the authentication server 101 or 102, the authentication processing unit 301 determines whether or not the authentication is successful based on the authentication result (step S603). If the authentication is not successful, the process proceeds to step S601.

  If the authentication is successful, the application control unit 302 compares the security level of the currently selected application with the security level of the user who has been successfully authenticated (step S604). Here, first, the user who has succeeded in authentication is a user corresponding to the user ID input in the input unit 702 in step S602. The currently selected application is a Copy application that is an application on the initial screen. Each security level is acquired from the authentication information table and the security level table.

  The application control unit 302 determines whether the user can use the currently selected application based on the result of comparing the security levels (step S605). If the security levels match, the application control unit 302 determines that the application control unit 302 is available, and displays the application screen of the currently selected application (step S606). For example, if the user authenticated in S602 is the user with the user ID “user1”, the application screen of the Copy application is displayed.

  FIG. 9 is a diagram illustrating an application screen of the Copy application. The user performs a copy operation on this screen and instructs the start of copying by pressing the start button. Reference numerals 901, 902, and 903 denote application selection buttons for selecting an application. The user can select a desired application by pressing any of the buttons 901 to 903.

  After the application is selected and the application screen is displayed, the application control unit 302 determines whether another application has been selected (step S607). When another application is selected, the process proceeds to step S604, and the application control unit 302 compares the security level of the newly selected application with the security level of the user (step S604).

  If it is determined in step S605 that it cannot be used, for example, (1) the user with the user ID “user1” selects the Box application on the screen of FIG. 9, or (2) the user who has been authenticated in step S602 is the user ID If the user is “user3”, the application control unit 302 displays the second authentication screen (step S608).

  FIG. 8 is a diagram illustrating a second authentication screen in a state where the Box application is selected. This is displayed when (1) the user with the user ID “user1” selects the Box application on the screen of FIG. Reference numerals 805, 806, and 807 denote application selection buttons. The user can select a desired application by pressing any of the buttons 805 to 807. In FIG. 8, an Application 1 application, a Copy application, and a Box application can be selected, and the Box application is currently selected.

  The authentication screen of FIG. 8 is displayed on the LCD display. Reference numeral 801 denotes an authentication screen. Reference numeral 802 denotes an input unit for inputting a user ID. Reference numeral 803 denotes an input unit for inputting a password. Reference numeral 804 denotes a login button.

  The application control unit 302 determines whether another application has been selected on the second authentication screen (step S609). If another application is selected, the process proceeds to step S604.

  When the user ID and password are input again by the user without selecting another application, and the login button 704 is pressed by the user, the authentication processing unit 301 executes the second authentication process (step S610).

  In the second authentication process, the authentication processing unit 301 of the MFP transmits the user ID and password input by the input units 802 and 803 to the authentication server 101 or 102. The authentication screen 801 is displayed until the authentication process is completed. Upon receiving the authentication result from the authentication server 101 or 102, the authentication processing unit 301 determines whether or not the authentication is successful based on the authentication result (step S611). If the authentication is not successful, the process proceeds to step S610.

  If the authentication is successful, the application control unit 302 compares the security level of the currently selected application with the security level of the user who has been successfully authenticated (step S612). Here, the user who has succeeded in authentication is a user corresponding to the user ID input in the input unit 802 in step S610.

  The application control unit 302 determines whether the user can use the currently selected application based on the result of comparing the security levels (step S613). If the security levels match, the application control unit 302 determines that the application control unit 302 is available, and displays the application screen of the currently selected application (step S606).

  For example, when the user with the user ID “user1” wants to use the Box application, the user ID “user2” and the password corresponding thereto may be used on the second authentication screen of FIG. Thereby, the user who used the user ID “user1” can use the Box application without returning to the authentication on the first authentication screen.

  If it is determined in S605 that it can be used, the application screen is displayed without displaying the second authentication screen, so that authentication processing is always performed every time an application is selected. To prevent.

  Since the MFP according to the present invention compares the security level of the selected application with the security level of the authenticated user each time an application is selected, a different security level is set for each of a plurality of applications. can do. Further, when the security level of the selected application does not match the security level corresponding to the currently used user ID, the user does not return to the first authentication screen in step S601 and performs the second authentication. If the user can be authenticated using another user ID on the screen and the security level of the selected application matches the security level corresponding to the other user ID, use the selected application Can do.

  The program code and related data according to the present invention can be stored in a floppy (registered trademark) disk (FD) or a CD-ROM and supplied to the computer from there. Another object of the present invention is to supply a computer or an image processing apparatus with a storage medium that records program codes of software (control program) that realizes the functions of the above-described embodiments.
