5.7 Adding a Context Manager


During initial creation of a context, domain managers and domain administrators are assigned as context managers for the context they are creating, and can assign other users to be context managers of that context. Normally, after initial creation of a context, 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 that was referenced during installation (see Section 1.2, "Access to User Details").

Use the following procedure to add a context manager:

  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 for which you want to add a context manager.

  4. On the right panel of the Contexts page, click the Managers tab.

  5. In the toolbar of the Managers tab, click the New Manager icon to open the New Manager dialog.

  6. On the New Manager dialog, click the Search Users button to populate the Available Users list.

  7. Move the user or users that you want to become context managers of this context into the Selected Users list, then click OK.
