Installation

The Site Restrictions Module comes with both a Share and Repo amp. Please follow our Installation guide on how to install this module.

Once installed, create a group called SITE_CREATORS from the Administration Panel.

Configuration

By setting folder.creation.minimumlevel in alfresco-global.properties you can adjust the minimum site role needed to create folders.

For instance, if you want only Site Collaborators or Site Managers to create folders, use the following option:

folder.creation.minimumlevel=SiteCollaborator

Usage

Adding Users to the Site Creators group

  • Navigate to the Administration Panel
  • Select Groups underneath Users and Groups
  • Browse for the SITE_CREATORS group. If it doesn't exist, create it.
  • Add the User to the group.
  • They will now be able to create sites.
