10.10.Provisioning settings and managing access to contentWEB

The File Archive provisioning setting are accessible on the File Archive ⇒ Settings ⇒ Provisioning settings page.

cACCESS 2.9 doc 141

The provisioning job that synchronizes the Active directory with contentACCESS can be set directly on this page.

Note: The system’s LDAP settings specified on page System Services System in section “Active directory integration settings” are used to connect to the Active Directory.



When the provisioning job is started, it will automatically add the new Active Directory users into contentACCESS based on provisioning settings. The provisioned objects will automatically get log on rights to the contentWEB File Archive and will be able to access the archive folders on which they have the necessary rights. The contentWEB users can log in to contentWEB using Windows authentication.

cACCESS 2.9 doc 142

The existing contentWEB users can be viewed with clicking on the “manage access for single user” option on the Provisioning settings page:

cACCESS 2.9 doc 143

The users that are already provisioned have an automatic flag, while manually added users have a manual flag:

cACCESS 2.9 doc 144

New contentWEB users can be added to the contentACCESS File Archive using the + new option on the same page. File archive access rights can be given to an already existing or a new contentACCESS user.

cACCESS 2.9 doc 145


Configuration of File archive provisioning:

To configure the File archive provisioning, the administrator is required to configure

  1. The time periods, when the provisioning will run – this must be configured in section “Scheduling settings”.
  2. The objects to be provisioned – must be set in section “Provisionable objects”
  3. Notification settings (optional)

cACCESS 2.9 doc 146

Provisionable objects may be added:

  1. from importable files, using the “import” function (described in more details in chapter Importing contentACCESS configurations from files)
  2. manually via the “new” button.

To add object manually, click “new” and specify the object(s) in the respective dialog. Choose the provisionable object type, which can be

  • an LDAP path
  • or a Group.

Type in the Active Directory path/group name. It is recommended to use the “Test” button to verify if the LDAP Path/Group name has been correctly entered in the first text box.
The provisioning job

  • adds all the users involved in the LDAP path/Group into contentACCESS
  • grants contentWEB File Archive rights for the users involved in the LDAP path/Group.
  • cACCESS 2.9 doc 147

Notification settings are used to set automatic email notifications to specific addresses if any warnings/errors occur. Set the notification emails if necessary and save your settings.
