Introduction

We'd like to be able to have Power Users access the Control Panel in UMP, but remove this view for all non-Power Users. ?How can this be done?




Procedure

1) ?Log in to UMP as a superuser and access the Control Panel. ?Change the Default User Associations from Portal Settings -> Configuration -> Users -> Roles. ?Remove the 'Power User' role for default users.

Remove 'Power User' from default user settings

?
2) Go to Portal -> Roles -> User -> Actions -> Define Permissions
?
?Define permissions for the Role 'User'
?
3) ?Go to Add Permissions -> (Portal) General
?
User-added image

?
4) ?Deselect 'Go to Control Panel' and click 'Save'

Deselect 'Go to Control Panel'


All users that are not 'Power Users' now will not be able to view the 'Control Panel' pull-down menu.
