Best practices for creating and securing a page and portlet hierarchy

Follow these best practices for creating and securing a page and portlet hierarchy:

  • Organize the hierarchy to permit security through inheritance.
  • Assign roles NO higher than Privilege User role to average portal user.
  • Lock container content to prevent users from adding or deleting content.
  • Copy portlets to assign different level of access.
  • Assign user the same privileges on the page as the highest privilege of the portlet placed on the same page.
  • Assume that a user has the highest level of access granted to them by more than one group.
