The Virtual Paths portlet is used to manage the virtual paths from a cms/managment site without having access to backend of the Unify



This portlet is used to allow users to view/create/delete virtual paths if she/he has permissions to do so.


Once this portlet is placed on a page that is deployed, a user needs to have the relevant permissions in order to use it. The required permissions to are being able to modify / edit the site the portlet it's in. This is because virtual paths depend on a Site.

The way to grant these permissions to a user is: Go to Users and Groups > Permissions, select the group you want to grant access to modify virtual paths (this has to be done on a group basis, so you may need to create a new group to put these users in). On the permission set dropdown select the name of the site you want to be able to edit. Click on the Permissions button at the top, it will take you to a list of permissions to grant access to. Tick the checkbox for the group and "Edit site" and click Save (see User_permissions)

If the user you granted permissions to is logged in, it will need to log out and log back in for these changes to take effect.


This portlet has several modes



User can add a new virtual path in backend by giving the values for Path,ID of the target page and Displayed item's value which is optional
