Creating Portal Roles

Roles are used to control which Portal pages or elements contacts from Dynamics CRM can access. The Portal Connector allows your to define, at a very granular level, what Roles can and cannot view. There is no need for any other permission settings on the Dynamics CRM side of the system.

NOTE: By default there are no Roles defined within Dynamics CRM. You need to create roles that align with your business requirements. Any Roles you create in Dynamics CRM will be pushed out and synchronized with The Portal Connector when users are assigned the role.

To create a New Portal Role, in Dynamics CRM navigate to Settings and select The Portal Connector group and then Portal Roles.

Click the +NEW button and give the Portal Role a Name.

Optionally, enter a Role Description to better identify the intended use of the Role, then SAVE.

Adding Portal Roles

That is it. Create as many Roles as you require.
