Role-Based Access in Page Personalization

Until now, end users could add iViews or pages to a personalized page from the Portal Content Directory. The end user had to know where the required objects were located in the PCD hierarchy to be able to add them to the personalized page. In addition, administrators had to maintain permissions for content they made available to end users add.

A new ability has been added to portal page personalization. You can now see a new content area named “Role-Based Content“.

Expanding this content area reveals the navigational structure available to the end-user at runtime.

To enable this ability, the administrator needs to perform the following:

1) Navigate to Content Administration -> Portal Content Management -> Portal Content -> Portal Users -> Standard Portal Users -> right-click “Personalize Page” and open the Page editor.

2) Open the “Personalize Page Application” page.

3) Check the “Visible” checkbox next to the “Role-Based Content” iView, and save your changes.


Now, end-users will be able to personalize their content using the navigation hierarchy they are familiar with.
