In our legacy system, we often pop up a dialog which asks "Do you really want to do this?", or "Please enter the reason for doing this", or "Who are you and why are you doing this?".

Does someone do something similar with EDM or other EPICS means? I can think of several ways to implement this, each of which is cumbersome. (Note to Bob: yes, even an SNL program could do it!)

We have some medm panels intended only for the beamline scientists' use. We get to these via a 'Shell Command' button. The script then uses xterm to prompt the user for a password before it brings up the medm panel.
