Request Access for New Users to Your Site

Access for the initial setup of your website within Cascade Server will be handled during your development meetings with ITS. If your site is already being maintained in Cascade Server and you need others in your department to have access, please submit a ticket in the Web project at jira.uwo.ca providing the user's full name and Western Identity username as well as the site name and level of access required (either full or specific folder).

Levels of Access available

Full Manager Access (Manager group)

Specific Folder Access (User group)

How to Grant Specific Folder Access

  1. Submit a jira ticket requesting that the user be given access to the site and only have specific folder access.
  2. Once you have confirmation that the user has been given access:
    1. Go to the folder you want the user to have read/write/publish priviledges to
    2. Click Access
    3. Find the username in the Unassigned box
    4. Using the green arrows, move the username to the Write box
    5. Click 'Apply to Children'
    6. Click the Submit button
  3. Have the user log in to Cascade to confirm their access is correct.

Please note that your 'user' group will automatically have READ access to the Base folder.  From there, you apply access for a specific user.  e.g. user1 will put in the user group by ITS and then you will give user1 access on a folder by folder basis for only those folders that they need to edit and publish.  If the folder is nested, you would give user1 read access to the top level folder and then write access to the folder they will be editing and publishing.
