Extranet attempts

Thursday 29 April 2004 6:56:19 pm - 4 replies

Any attempts to create an extranet example that allows for a secured area for each of the organization's clients? I have not found a way to do this without requiring someone to create a section for each client and then a new role for just that client area to be secured. Any others out there attempted this? What were your findings when trying to use ezPub as an extranet.

I've done it, and I had to go for the solution with sections and roles... I think that's the only possible solution.. It works, but it's much administration if you've got plenty of different clients..

Ick, there's got to be a better way, we should start an extranet project in ezPublish that works right, it sucks that you can't use it to make the extranet auto-add clients/roles etc.

It just seems like a design flaw when you go and try to make an extranet, it just doesn't fit that mold.

It wouldn't be too hard add that functionality. The big problem with adding functionality like that though is the workflow system - it really sucks. If we had ready made stock actions like AddRole, AddUserToGroup, AddSection, SendEmail etc etc etc all that sort of stuff would be a peice of chocolate cake to integrate. Have a look at all the Java based workflow/process systems for inspiration as to where the ezPublish workflow system needs to go.
