Description:

You can restrict access to portlets and pages for individual users, groups, or OBS units.

When you restrict access to pages, users will not see links to the pages if they do not have the appropriate access rights.

For portlets, you can assign restrictions that prevent users from adding portlets to their personal pages. If a user has access to a page, they can view all the portlets on the page.

Solution:

  1. From Clarity Studio menu, select:

    • Portlets, to restrict access to a portlet, or
