If you manage scenario and personalization assets in the content development environment, users create and edit them in two interfaces:

Users who work with these assets require user accounts for both the Business Control Center and the ACC; access privileges for the two accounts must be coordinated.

However, note the following as you configure the corresponding access privileges for the ACC:

  • You can disable and enable access to the ACC Scenarios task area as needed. See the discussion on managing access control in the ATG Platform Programming Guide for details.

  • As described in the ATG Personalization Programming Guide, the ACC has its own default security policy and security mechanisms for the Scenarios task area. By default the administrators-group is granted full access to all scenarios, while the everyonegroup is granted List and Read access only. This has the following implications for ATG Content Administration-managed assets:

    • If you need to restrict access to the Scenarios task areas to a subset of users, you should assign those users as members of the administrators-group. Then create one or more custom groups for users who require access to other administrative ACC task areas.

    • Carefully coordinate the security set on the scenario folders and scenarios via the ACC security features with the security used to give access to the same items in the Business Control Center.

  • For information on using the ACC’s security features for scenario folders and scenarios, see the discussion on scenario security in the ATG Personalization Programming Guide.
