This is the continuation of my previous blog ESS MSS Multi-Client Configuration - Part1

5.11 Delegated Administration


Create a user

Modify the user and set the corresponding Company.

Assign the role „Delagated User Admin“

Then just assign role assigner on all specific client roles. 

System Administration-> Permissions

For each role just open it (ie: Manager Self-Service), search for the delegated user (ie 300_admin)

Then press Add

Finally check on the role assigner and save.

6. Appendix C: Look & Feel for different Portal Group/Roles

1.  Navigate to Content Administration > Portal Content and create a new folder (e.g.: ‘tmp’). All the portal objects relating to Look & Feel (like Portal Desktop, Framework etc.) will be created here.

2.  Navigate to System Administration > Portal Display > Theme Editor. The list of existing default portal theme templates are displayed here. For creating a particular Look & Feel for a group/role, you may wish to choose from one of the existing themes (or) you can create a custom theme by clicking on a theme > save as > and provide the custom ‘Theme Name’ and ‘Theme ID’ and save. If you wish to use the existing themes, skip to step 3.

Note: This guide will use an existing theme.

3.  Navigate to System Administration > Portal Display > Desktops & Display Rules. Copy the Default Framework Page (from the path shown according to the screenshot below) and paste it in the folder (tmp) created during step 1.

4.  Navigate to System Administration > Portal Display > Desktops & Display Rules > Portal Content > tmp > Right-click > new ‘Portal Desktop’

5.  Provide a Portal Desktop Name, and Portal Desktop ID. Add the copied framework page to the newly created Portal Desktop (screenshot below)

6.  Navigate to System Administration > Portal Display > Desktops & Display Rules > Portal Content > Themes. The list of default and newly created themes are listed here. Right-click on any theme and Add Theme to Portal Desktop (screenshot below).

7.  Save the new Desktop

8.  Navigate to System Administration > Portal Display > Desktops & Display Rules > Portal Content > Portal Administrators > Super Administrators > Master Rule Collection. Right-click to Open Object.

9.  Rule collections have IF and THEN expressions. For the IF expression, choose whether group / Role and provide the Group / Role name.

After providing the IF expression, we need to provide the THEN expression. Choose THEN from the dropdown and ‘Portal Desktop’ from the adjacent dropdown.

While this object is still being open, navigate Portal Content > tmp > Desktop1 (newly created). Right-click and Add Portal Desktop to Expression (Screenshot below).

10.  Click ‘Apply’ and ‘Save’

Note that the newly created rule collection is added and displayed. Now we have added a new Look & Feel to a user group. Similarly it can be added for Roles as well. Multiple rule collections can be created through IF THEN expressions to add different Look & Feel to different Groups.
