1. UNDERSTANDING ROLE BASED ACCESS IN SAGEFRAME
Access to viewing and managing SageFrame portals is controlled by User Accounts and web site Roles. The basic concept is that users can be permitted to view pages and modules, as well as edit pages and modules by adding to one or more web site role(s).
1.1 WORKING WITH USER ACCOUNTS
- Administrators can create user accounts for any person, or they can enable site visitors to register themselves for a user account.
- Once a user has an authorized user account, they can access all pages and modules that are restricted to members of the Registered Users role.
- Individual users can be granted view and/or edit permission to page or module.
- All users who are a member of a selected role can be granted view and/or edit permission to page or module.
