|1.||Go to Services > User portal > Group access.|
|2.||Configure the following parameters:|
|•||Group — From the drop-down menu, select the user group that will use this portal. For more information about configuring groups, see Managing Groups of Users.|
|•||Portal — From the drop-down menu, select the portal that this group can access.|
Note: For Multi-Tenant licensed systems, if a user portals’ tenant administrators are members of the same group, that is, either a local Smoothwall group or a directory services group, you can provide access to the group as a whole. However, it should be noted that all members of the group have access to the user portal. As user portal data is restricted on a tenancy-basis, members of groups used by multiple tenants may have access to the wrong tenancy data.
For ease of access, you use your domain credentials (username and password) to log into the user portal. The Smoothwall verifies this against those received from the configured directory connection (Services > Authentication > Directories) hence why you only need to specify who is granted access.
- Use a username and password combination from another configured directory connection that does support password verification (Active Directory, RADIUS Directory, and so on)
- Create a Local Users directory connection (see Configuring a Local Users Directory) containing the usernames and passwords for your portal users, then
add them to the group you specified for the portal above
