In an Adxstudio Portals application, an authenticated portal user is associated with either a CRM Contact or System User. The default Adxstudio Portals configuration is Contact-based, so we will use Contact as our example for the purposes of explaining security.
- For a detailed explanation of authentication in Adxstudio Portals, see Authentication.
- In order to log in, a contact must have the appropriate Web Authentication information configured.
- Portal users must be assigned to Web Roles in order to gain permissions beyond unauthenticated users.
- To configure permissions for a web role, configure its Web Page Access and Website Access control rules.
