17.2 Delegating the Task of Assigning Privileges

In a large enterprise, the portal administrator should consider delegating the power to assign privileges. The range of privileges extends from portal-wide to item-specific. A lone portal administrator handling all privilege assignments could easily be overwhelmed by access requests.

Typically, a privilege that provides total control over an object—from a page group to an item—also provides the power to assign equal or subordinate access privileges to other users. For example, a page group administrator—that is, a user with the page group privilege Manage All on a page group—can assign the page privilege Manage to users and groups. Among other things, this privilege enables users to create sub-pages under the page on which they have the privilege. A user with the page privilege Manage can enable item level security and assign item-level access privileges.

Table 17-1 lists the privileges that include the power of privilege assignment and the types of privileges that can be assigned.
