Need to Assign read-only roles to a user in EP


I am currently facing a situation wherin I need to assign read-only roles to a user. I need to assign the user admin, system admin and content admin roles to him, but all with read only permissions. Could someone kindly direct me as to how this can be done in EP7.0?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

    To have read only permissions for content admin

    Under System Administration > Permissions > portal content

    Right click the contents and open permission. Select the user and give read permissions only and save it. This will allow users to have only read only access to roles.

    Hi Karthik,

    first, welcome on SDN!

    About your question:

    Ganesh already showed the way for the PCD. Anyhow, the content admin also can accedd the KM content (if installed); so for KM the settings have to be done, too, i.e. defining only read-permissions for this user on all repositories.

    The same holds for System-Admin - Permissions - Portal Permissions, here under the different sections only read access permissions would have to be set.

    Anyhow, some areas cannot be restricted in this way, for example the User Management. This could be done only via http://yourserver/useradmin and there via ROLE actions (and not per user).

    Still, some areas certainly will stay problematic, so that one maybe would have to strip down the standard roles (create a delta link copy of the content and then remove the problematic areas).

    Hope it helps
