SecurePortal restricted realms still visible when using WebService

Follow

SecureAuth IdP Versions Affected: All

Description:

When using the Secure Portal, realms can be hidden with a group restriction. However when the realm to be hidden uses a Web Service Data store, the realm is still visible even when the authenticating user is not a member of the restricted group.

 

Cause:

The required group restriction is not correctly set on the realm itself and/or the Portal Page Authorization is incorrectly set. 

 

Resolution:

Add the restriction into the Web.Config of the realm so that it does not show in the Secure Portal unless a user is in the correct group:

1. Open up the Admin Console
2. Go to the System Info tab of the realm you wish to restrict
3. Scroll to the bottom and click the button to edit the web.config
4. Search for the line starting:

<add key="UserGroups"

5. Change the line so it reads as below, replacing GROUPNAME as appropriate:

<add key="UserGroups" value="GROUPNAME" />

e.g.

6. Save.
7. While still in the Admin Console, click on the Support Portal realm in the left hand pane, then click on the Post Authentication tab.
8. Now click "View and Configure the portal page" to open the Portal Page Builder.

9. Select Token Required from the Portal Page Authorization drop down:mceclip2.png 

10. Click Save.

Now the realm should only be visible to members of the group specified.

 

Additional information:

Setting Token Required on the Portal Page Authorization dropdown is equivalent to setting the following in the web.config for the Support Portal:

<add key="PortalTokenRequired" value="1" />
