Web Hosting - Manifest Group Protections
This KB addresses the fundamental items that need to be in place when using Manifest folders/groups to restrict access to locations on your website.
- Create the Manifest Group: https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=25878
- Once the group is created you will need to add the appropriate SAML2 EntityIDs for your web site to the Manifest group per https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=27776
- Ensure that you have populated the group with the appropriate privileges and added people to the membership of the group:
-- Manage Privileges https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=25880
-- Manage Membership https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=25882
- Make note of the full path to your Manifest folder/group that you wish to protect (avoid using spaces in the group naming)
- Specify which location(s) you wish to protect to which group(s) i.e. root of the site, subfolder(s), specific files, etc.
- Email the firstname.lastname@example.org the Manifest path and the locations to protect and we will make the configuration on the server or customers can also protect locations via .htaccess
