Allowing external access to your portal


Recommended Posts

Please can we get some advice on this as we have some new processes that we would like to open up for people outside of our University to complete form in our portal.

However, this is not something that we have done before and we are wondering what is involved and if there is any documentation on how you allow this, we currently use SSO to login into our portal and I guess that we would need some config changes to allow this?

Also once this happens how to make certain forms only available to this subset of users?

Could you not use the original 'Customer Portal'. Though this is not a feature rich as the new Employee Portal, this would allow you to use the Hornbill authentication method and also not require a collaboration license for the external users?

You could then use Catalog Subscriptions to determine who had access to the forms.

@Martyn Houghton we are moving to the new employee portal in the next few days (hopefully) so only want to run one portal ideally.

Also with the Catalog Subscriptions we struggle with this, as we have so many people in our system for us it would be easier if there was a don't allow option (for dept, site etc) rather than having to add in all the different departments etc....
