Determining the right portal page for each purpose through the UMC
You can make further settings for the portal page in the UMC under Domain → Portal Settings.
Here you will find a list of all objects related to the portal, differentiated by the type of Entry, Portal or Category. You can use the portal type, for example, to add a new portal or set up local portals for individual servers. You could, for instance, differentiate between a customer or student portal that can be accessed from the Internet and various employee portals for internal use that cannot or can only be accessed remotely under certain conditions.
Using the UCS@school demo portal, I would now like to briefly describe the various settings you can configure on a portal in general.
Similar to a footnote, you can also set static links for your portal in the “Footer” of the page, such as an About or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) page.
You can store the static links as html files, in this example
gdpr.html, on the master in the directory
These links then appear on your portal page as shown in the screenshot and lead the user to the associated websites.
Under the tab “Portal categories and entries” you will find an overview of the categories and entries of the portal, which you can also move and customize here.
The “Add” command allows you to create new entries for the portal under “Portal Settings” – the same way you use the Visual Composer.
New since UCS version 4.4 is that the handling of anonymous, i.e. not authenticated, users can be adapted. Under “Manage anonymous visitors”, you can force a login by redirecting visitors to a login screen, or display the portal without entries with a notification window requiring them to log in.
