5.3 Modifying a Context


Normally, only context managers can perform this procedure. However, if contexts have become orphaned, a domain manager or domain administrator can acquire management rights to those contexts. Orphaned contexts are contexts whose managers have been deleted from the identity store (see Section 1.2, "Access to User Details").

The following attributes of a context can be modified: rights, managers, translations, exclusions, and trusted contexts.

Use the following procedure to modify a context:

  1. Click the Contexts tab to reveal the Contexts page.

  2. If you are a domain manager or domain administrator, click the Gain Management Rights For All Orphaned Contexts icon, which is in the toolbar on the left panel of the Contexts page.

    The icon is shown only to domain managers and domain administrators, and, when clicked, either identifies orphaned contexts and displays them in the list of contexts, or shows a message saying that there are no orphaned contexts.

  3. On the left panel of the Contexts page, select the context that you want to modify.

  4. On the right panel of the Contexts page, locate the attributes of the context that you want to change. These can be in the header, or on the Rights, Managers, Translations, Exclusions, or Trusted Contexts tabs. All context names and descriptions, including those in the default language, can be changed on the Translations tab.

  5. Use the header controls and toolbar icons to add, view, change, or delete attributes, as allowed.

    Some modifications are not allowed for some attributes. For example, you cannot remove yourself as the context manager if you are the only context manager.
