Automating CMS Credentials for the Tizen player

Since version R203, Xibo for Tizen supports automating entering the credentials for your CMS and license pool. Once configured, you will be able to connect a USB to your monitor, which will provide the credentials for your CMS once the player is started.

Please note that this functionality is supported on all models listed in the Supported monitor list. If you encounter an issue with this functionality, please contact us on the help desk.


Create the JSON file:

You will need to create a JSON file, named cms_settings.json that will contain the credentials you want to pass to the monitor. Below is the correct format for that JSON file:


If you do not have a License Pool when installing your player, you can leave the CMSEmail entry empty, with just the “”

USB Setup:

Now that you have created your JSON file containing your CMS credentials, the cms_settings.json must be saved to the root directory of your USB.

If you are following the steps for a USB installation, this JSON must still be saved to the root directory on the USB device, not in the SSSP folder for the player WGT.

Automate your credentials

Once you have completed the installation steps for the Xibo for Tizen player, the player will start automatically. You will see that the credentials for your CMS are pre-populated on the Connect to CMS page.

Please note that the player will automatically check for these credentials as long as the CMS address and CMS Key fields are empty.
