User accounts can be
added to Prime Home using two methods:
locally within the
predefined users from an LDAP server
User permissions are
determined by the role that is assigned to the user (or the user group). A role
is a definition of permissions that determine which of the Web interface’s
functionality (tabs and portlets) are presented to the user.
from an LDAP server are commonly added in groups. It is advisable to manage
users in groups, and assign a role to a group, rather than to a single user.
Adding Users is
carried out via the
Administration > Users portlet.
Manage Prime Home
Adding groups of users
from an LDAP server is performed at initial Prime Home setup. However, you can
also create groups of users manually, according to your needs.
Creating User Groups
is carried out through the
Administration > User
Groups portlet. Note that after you create a User
Group, you need to populate it with Users, using Actions / Assign Members.
Assign Permissions and Associate them with Users
Prime Home has around twenty roles by
default and new roles can be added via the Administration > Roles portlet if
necessary. In addition, permissions to perform different activities via
different portlets can also be added or removed from different roles. These
roles can then be associated with users or user groups.
In the Administration > Roles portlet, click Add and fill in the details to create a new role.
Click the Actions button next
to your chosen role and select Define Permissions.
In the Role's details screen,
in the Add Permissions drop-down menu, select the required actions to add to
Click the Actions button next to this role and select Assign
Either select Users or User Groups and then click on Available to
populate the screen.
Select the required Users or User Group and click Update
Associations. The role is now assigned to the User/User Group.
