17.4 Securing Page Groups

Page group privileges are granted on the Access tab of page group properties.

To grant privileges on a page group:

  1. Log in to Oracle Portal.

  2. Click the Build tab to bring it forward.

  3. From the Page Groups portlet Work In drop-down list, select the page group on which to grant privileges.

  4. Click the Configure link.

  5. On the resulting page, click the Access tab to bring it forward.

  6. In the Grantee field, enter the name of a user or group.

    Optionally, click the Browse Users or Browse Groups icon to select a user or group from a list.

  7. Select a privilege from the drop-down list. Choose from:

    • Manage All

    • Manage Classifications

    • Manage Templates

    • Manage Styles

    • View

    These privileges are described in detail in Appendix B, "Page Group Object Privileges".

    Though you cannot select multiple privileges to grant at one time, after you click Add, you can repeat the process, select the same user or group, and grant another privilege. In this way, you can grant a general privilege, such as View, to a group, then a higher-level privilege, such as Manage All, to a user who is also a member of the group.

  8. Click Add.

    The assignment displays in the Change Access section, where you can revise the grant to a greater or lesser privilege level, or remove the grant entirely.


    When you change access privileges, click the Clear Cache link at the bottom of the Access tab to make such changes take effect immediately.
