Understanding Administration of the Content Management System


Concept


Steps:

  1. Administering the Content Management System

     

    Before content can be created, published, and used, the content management system folder hierarchy and privilege sets must be set up by administrators. Depending on the needs of the site, the tasks of administering the content management system can be distributed across multiple administrator roles.

    Step 1
  2. Administering the Content Management System (continued)

     

    The following figure highlights the administration tasks by role:

    1. Assign top administrators for each feature of the content management system (portal administrator).

    2. Define privilege sets for each feature of the content management system (portal administrator).

    3. Specify viewer roles for viewing published content from the content management system (portal administrator).

    4. Create the top folders for a feature (top administrators by feature).

    5. Set top folder properties, add administrators, and set privileges to each top folder (top administrators by feature).

    6. Create subfolders, set folder properties, and assign privileges for each of those subfolders (subfolder administrators).

    Step 2

In summary, before content can be created, published, and used, the content management system folder hierarchy and privilege sets must be set up by administrators.
