Menu Security Setup Via the Web.SiteMap File - VPConnect - English - Foundation 22.1 - OnBase - external


Foundation 22.1

The Web.SiteMap file is used to configure which menu items are available in the application and which roles have access to them. Security access to individual pages behind the menu items is controlled by the Location Pages sections of the Web.config file. Role definitions are also defined in the Web.config file.


Be sure to create a backup copy of the originally installed version of this file before making any changes to it. If you delete page URLs, for example, you will have a difficult time trying to re-enter missing functionality.
