[Operation of Image Forming Apparatus According to Embodiment of Present Invention]
Next, the operation of the image forming apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 3 is a flowchart for explaining the operation of the image forming apparatus.

  Note that the operation example of FIG. 3 is a user who does not have the authority to use the full-color copy function, and a user who has received an administrator's license for that function is for use permission under the management of the administrator. An example of borrowing an IC card 70-1 and performing a full color copy job is shown.

  As shown in FIG. 3, the IC card reader / writer 67 monitors access to the IC cards 69 and 70 (step S11).

  At this time, a user who came to the image forming apparatus with the authentication IC card 69 and the use permission IC card 70-1 to perform a full-color copy job is used for authentication in which his / her user identification information is stored. Assume that the IC card 69 is set in the IC card reader / writer 67. Then, the IC card reader / writer 67 detects the access of the authentication IC card 69, reads the user identification information stored in the IC card 69, and transfers the read user identification information to the user authentication unit 77. To do.

  In response to this, the user authentication unit 77 has logged in via IC card key authentication by comparing the user identification information read from the authentication IC card 69 with the user identification information registered in the apparatus in advance. User authentication relating to whether or not the user is a valid user is performed (step S12).

  As a result of user authentication in step S12, if the log-in user is approved as a valid user (“Yes” in step S13), the IC card reader / writer 67 continues to monitor the access to the IC cards 69 and 70. (Step S14).

  At this time, it is assumed that the access user described above sets the use permission IC card 70-1 in which the use permission information for the color copy function is stored in the IC card reader / writer 67. Then, the IC card reader / writer 67 detects the access of the IC card 70-1, reads out the usage permission information stored in the IC card 70-1 (step S15), and reads the read IC card 70-1. Is transferred to the use authority determination unit 79. In response to this, the usage authority determining unit 79 uses the usage permission information of the read IC card 70-1, the user identification information relating to the access user, and the stored contents of the usage authority storage unit 73. It is determined whether or not the permission condition is satisfied (step S16).

  This use permission condition is that the access user is not a person who has the authority to use the predetermined function (in this embodiment, the color copy function), but the person who is permitted to use the predetermined function ( This is based on the possession of the IC card for use permission 70-1 in which the use permission information for the color copy function is stored.

  As a result of the determination in step S16, when it is determined that the use permission condition is not satisfied ("No" in step S16), the use authority determining unit 79 returns the process flow to step S14, and the following The processing is executed sequentially. When it is determined that the use permission condition is not satisfied, the fact that the use permission condition is not satisfied is displayed on the touch panel unit 53 to alert the user that the use permission condition is not satisfied. May be.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step S16, when it is determined that the use permission condition is satisfied (“Yes” in step S16), the use authority determining unit 79 notifies that to the use permission control unit 81. To pass.

  In response to this, the use permission control unit 81 performs control to temporarily permit the access access user to use the predetermined function (in this embodiment, the color copy function) (step S17). Upon receiving this use permission, the access access user performs a required job (in this embodiment, a color copy job) within the range of functions permitted by the use permission information.

  Next, the use permission control unit 81 stores the use history of the predetermined function (in this embodiment, the color copy function) in the use history storage unit 75 in association with the access user. As a result, a temporary function usage history (when, who uses which IC card for license use, and how much is used, how much is used by a user who is subject to function usage restrictions). ) Can be managed.

  Then, after the storage management of the usage history in step S18, the main control unit 11 ends the flow of a series of processes.

  Next, the operation of the embodiment of the present invention will be supplementarily described with specific use cases.

  As a premise, it is assumed that A Corporation restricts the use of the full color copy function to some employees such as managers.

  At one time, the general employee B who does not have the authority to use the function needs to use the full-color copy function when preparing the meeting materials.

  Therefore, the purpose of use is explained to the administrator, and a license IC card 70-1 in which license information for the color copy function is stored is borrowed as a proof of the license.

  The employee B sets his / her authentication IC card 69 in the IC card reader / writer 67. Then, after user authentication, it is checked who has accessed the device. At this point, the employee B cannot use the color copy function yet.

  Next, the employee B sets the use permission IC card 70-1 in the IC card reader / writer 67. In this case, since the use permission condition of step S16 is satisfied, the use of the color copy function is temporarily permitted.

  Therefore, employee B can perform a required color copy job. The use history of this color copy job (when, who uses which IC card for which license is used, how much is used, and how much) is stored in the usage history storage unit 75 in association with the employee B. Is done.

  After executing the required color copy job, the employee B returns the use permission IC card 70-1 to the manager. As a result, a series of processing flow ends.

  Such a technology for permitting temporary use of a function using a use permission IC card can be applied to a service person (maintenance staff) of an image forming apparatus in the same manner as described above.

  In other words, a use permission IC card 70 storing use permission information related to special functions for maintenance, which is not used by general users in normal device use, is distributed to each service person.

  The service person who has received the maintenance service request sets the use permission IC card 70 in the IC card reader / writer 67. Then, the use of the special function for maintenance is temporarily permitted to the service person. Thus, the service person can use the special function for maintenance.

  In the present invention, it is presumed that the user possessing the use permission IC card is a user who has received use permission. For this reason, for example, when the IC card for use permission is lost, the function corresponding to the IC card may be illegally used by a third party who has picked up the IC card.

  However, in the present invention, in view of the fact that the use permission IC card is permitted only to users who have passed user authentication, and that the use history of the IC card is stored and managed. Even if a third party user who picked up the IC card used the function, the usage history (when, who used which IC card for license, how much used what function (?), It is clear that the IC card that was found was illegally used. For this reason, it can be considered that the illegal use of the IC card is effectively prevented.

However, in order to ensure the completeness of management, a configuration in which unauthorized use of the IC card is protected in advance by taking measures to stop the use of the card when the IC card for use permission is lost. May be adopted.
[Effect of Example]
In the embodiment of the present invention, as a result of the use authority determination by the use authority determining unit 79, the use permission control unit 81 permits the use of the predetermined function although the access user is not a person who has the use authority of the predetermined function. When it is determined that the person is a person who has been operated, a configuration is adopted in which the access user is temporarily allowed to use the predetermined function.

  As a result, even a user who is restricted to use the function can permit the temporary use of the function as long as the user permission IC card is obtained.

  Therefore, it is possible to meet the urgent needs of the site, and it is possible to obtain an image forming apparatus capable of realizing a high level of user convenience.

  By the way, even for a user who is restricted to use the function, for example, the authentication IC card 69 of the user C who has the authority to use the function is used as an operation that enables the temporary use of the function. It is conceivable to impersonate the user C and use the same function.

  However, in such a case, the use history of the function is managed as that of the impersonated user C, and is different from the substance.

  On the other hand, in the embodiment of the present invention, when a temporary function is used using a use permission IC card by a user who is restricted to use the function, the use history (when, who, It was decided to adopt a configuration that stores and manages which IC card for use permission and which function is used and how much is used.

  Therefore, even if a user is restricted to use the function, as long as the IC card for use permission is obtained, the user's usage history is stored and managed, and the temporary use of the function is permitted. be able to.

[Others]
