User Profiles

With DASH Professional you can control what pages are displayed for authenticated users by using profiles. You can also control access to pages using Security Constraints on your pages and folders.

Commonly Used Profiles

group-fallback: Upon authentication - a user is presented with the default pages in the portal site tree under _group - their group name. For example - if you want pages to be displayed for the Accounting group - create a folder under _group named Accounting. Create pages in that folder structure and assign all users in the accounting group this profile. They will only see those pages.

DASH: - the default for DASH. Upon authentication - any page with appropriate security constraints will be displayed at the root or / site tree level.

role-fallback: Upon authentication - a user is presented with the default pages in the portal site tree under _role - their role name. For example - if you want pages to be displayed for the Executive role - create a folder under _role named Executive. Create pages in that folder structure and assign all users in the executive role this profile. They will only see those pages.

user-role-fallback: Upon authentication - a user is presented with the default pages in the portal site tree under _user - their user name. For example - if you want pages to be displayed for a specific user - create a folder under _user for their username. If there are no pages there or the folder does not exist, than DASH will look for pages in the _role - their role name folder. They will only see those pages.

subsite-by-hostname: This is discussed in the Subsites section of the wiki. Upon authentication - users with this profile are sent to the approriate subsite folder located in the __subsite-root - _hostname - hostnames folder. See Using Subsites for additional information.
