have created an interactive video, but not every viewer is allowed to see the
videos content. You want to create a barrier so that a password has to entered
before access to the video is granted.
Ivory Studio allows you to create such a barrier by using the `Password Gate` component. Upon opening the video, the viewer is asked to enter a password. An input field will appear on the viewers screen, asking him or her to enter the right password. After successfully entering the right password, the video will continue playing.
Attention: The Password Gate is not used to secure data, but is only meant to create a barrier for the viewing of the content.
1. Add to the timeline
Add the component “Password Gate” to the timeline. When a viewer reaches the component on the timeline, the video will pause. The component’s location on the timeline therefore determines the moment when the Password Gate is activated.
2. Determine the style
There are many ways to customize the Password Gate to fit your stylistic preferences. This ensures the component seamlessly fits in with the style of your video.
3. Configurating the Password
There are two ways in which the Password Gate allows you to set up a password:
Static – This sets up a single password. Every viewer uses the same password to log in.
– This setting allows the use of multiple, different passwords, while also allowing the option to set an expiration date for individual passwords. To do so, use the Ivory Database.
Create the following attributes in the Ivory Database:
password (the Password that should be entered before the video continues)
validtill (the expiration date and time for the password)
Passwords with an expiration date have to be entered in the Ivory Database. Make sure to use the following format: YYYY-MM-DD / HH:MM:SS
