    "Sub-admin" functionality to restrict what portlets he can a

    Tomi L Newbie

      The case:

      1. There are several different portlets.
      2. Customer will buy 6 of these modules.
      3. Customer will have own "sub-admin" that is able to create users or other
      admin to his portal. "
      4. Sub-admin" can define what kind of portals these users can have in their sites.
      5. Users can manage layout of these portlets that subadmin have granted them.

      How can I handle all this? Should I create own user control module for subadmin? If so, can I use the existing one to define what all portlets these subadmins may have to share their users?

      Could you please help me with this matter? I have gone through much and going through all I can find in reasonable time to know how this is to be manages in correct way. There will be portals inside portals etc., but what else..?

            No easy way you can have portals in portals.. better think of some other architecture..

            Sub admins is easy - just make a simple portlet and use JBoss Portal API to manage the users of the portal but to enforce the subset of admins you need to implement is by yourself or use a JBP with properly configured LDAP
