Users and groups

Portal pages can be filtered, so that only certain users can access them. Filtering is achieved through the creation of groups, each of which has distinguishing characteristics, expressed in group rules. After the group creation, the groups and the portal pages are assigned to users by the system based on their profile. The result is that each user can access specific pages based on the groups of which the user is a member.

For example, your organization can have multiple offices, and you can want to grant access to certain documents only to one of the offices. In this example, it is the Boston office. You can create a "Boston" group. Then you can assign the group to all pages that are specific to the Boston office employees. Users who are not members of the Boston group cannot access the pages.

You can create groups and modify their rules using the group rule builder. You can run your group rules through a validator to find and fix errors in logic.

This section is for administrators who are responsible for setting up and maintaining users, user groups, and access to portal pages. It provides the basic information on the topic of user groups and how they are used to control user access to pages on your portal.
