Role concept and access rights
Who is allowed to do what? With contentXXL the roles are clearly regulated. Read, write and other accesses can be assigned on page level, page fragment level, object level - i.e. for example for individual documents - and even for language variants of an object.
Individual roles, e.g. for various groups of customers can be easily created
Complex access rights can be easily handled by means of security policies
Newsletter subscribers can be rapidly converted into a user group
Content sharing and cross-portal publishing allow for the creation of flexible websites for internationally active enterprises with branch offices or for associations and societies as well.

Details "Rights- and role planning"
In contentXXL, the access rights are regulated via a role concept
What is it capable of?
- The users’ access rights are regulated via the affiliation to roles (groups of users)
- Access rights can, however, also be directly assigned to users
- The administrator is completely free to assign roles, e.g. to departments or groups of customers
- The roles are assigned to various rights, e.g. read access on website level and write access on page fragment level
- Rights can be assigned up to object level, i.e. for an individual document or message
- Rights also include possible actions, such as the use of HTML, the possibility of publication or release of contents
- In order to secure the localisation workflow, rights can also be assigned for the individual language variants of an object
- Rights and roles can be compiled to security policies, which extremely simplifies the management
- Standard policies are defined for the various objects, which are used in case the access rights do not result from the context and no other specifications are made
- Whenever it is possible, safety settings are inherited, e.g. in case of pages or folders
- By multiple publication of objects (news, documents) on different pages, each role obtains exactly the contents intended for it
- Users and roles can be enabled for other portals. In connection with the release of contents, an efficient content sharing and/or cross-portal publishing is thus possible, i.e. contents can be provided beyond the portal boarders
- All functional groups (e.g. newsletter subscribers) are managed via roles as well; this way, interested persons can rapidly be converted into users or even editors
- The roles can be associated with groups in common directory services (NTLM, Active Directory, NDS via LDAP). A single sign-in is possible for Active Directory/NTLM.
- User attributes, such as e.g. telephone numbers or chiefs, can be taken over from the Active Directory.
