Zope: Creating a Restricted Folder
What is a Restricted Folder
A restricted folder is a section of a site with access restricted to a specific list of people.
How do I create a Restricted Folder
Creating a restricted folder involves creating a folder, limiting access to users with a specific role, and assigning the users you want to have access that role.
Fortunately ECN has created a tool to create a Restricted Folder for you. This is part of the
ECN System Tools.
Open the Zope Management Interface for the folder where you would like to create a restricted sub-folder. Once the page has loaded add "system" to the URL in the location bar of the browser and press Enter.
Example: https://engineering.purdue.edu/ECN/manage_main becomes https://engineering.purdue.edu/ECN/system
A screen with several options will load. These are the ECN System Tools.
Click the link titled, "Create a Restricted Folder". This will load a detailed description of what the tool will do.
After you have read the details click the button titled, "Create a Restricted Folder". This will return you to the Zope Management Interface for your folder. You will now see a new Folder with the Id "Restricted".
Click on the Restricted folder. There are two objects created by default: a Python Script named authorize and a Persistent List named authorizeAllowedUsers. Add fully qualified names from the Purdue Electronic Directory to the authorizeAllowedUsers list to grant access to your restricted site.
