  • 1.  Access the Forum Admin Control Panel

    Posted 03-31-2017 04:56 AM

    Hi,

     

    I'm trying to manage forum.

    In CA API developer portal Doc, I can read the text below, but I don't find At the bottom of the page, where to click to access "Admin Control Panel".

    Please advice

    Thanks,

    Corinne

     

    Extract from CA API developer portal Doc.

    "Access the Admin Control Panel

    Forum Administrators are responsible for configuring forums. They are the only users who can access

    the Admin Control Panel. The Admin Control Panel contains all forum Administration controls. This

    panel is available only to Forum Administrators, regardless of the user's role on the API Portal. By

    default, the API Portal Administrator account has Forum Administrator access. Forum Administrators

    can grant both Moderator and Administrator access to users.

    To access the Admin Control Panel:

    Log in to the API Portal as an Admin. The API Portal for your organization appears.

    On the Dashboard menu bar, click Forums to access the Forums page

    At the bottom of the page, click Admin Control Panel.

    In the Forum Admin sidebar, select an option to perform a forum Administration task."

    You have to be in the staging content to view this one.

     

    Login to portal and on the top, you will see content items. Click on it and choose Staging. Then choose forums and scroll down.

    Even in the Staging content, I can not see the "Admin Control Panel" link.

    Please advice.

    FYI, I have : CA API Portal Version: 3.5  Build: 583

    Connie,

     

    You need to login as the actual user named 'admin', not just a user that has administrator roles. Once you get to the admin control panel, you can assign forum administrator roles to other users.

    OK,

    Thanks a lot !

    I can see the Admin Control Panel now, as I'm now logged in as the actual user named "admin".

    Thanks,
