Authenticated users

If you choose to designate authenticated users, you create a group, "All authenticated users," where all authenticated users are granted access to the website or page that you specified. You can then assign permissions to the group, for example, file and image archive (unless the website is a public).

Authenticated users

Virtual groups

In the Virtual Group dialogue, designate the virtual groups that have been set up before on the website. Virtual groups means users who meet a specified criterion and are used if, for example, you have developed a custom JAAS module where you want to match the login with anything other than LDAP, such as a database. Or that you use CAS or SAML as the login method where authenticated users then can use virtual groups to gain permission.

Virtual groups

IP address range

Gives visitors anonymous read permission when they are within the specified span.

Add IP address range

The IP address login is an additional function in SiteVision CMS and is only displayed if you have a license for it. It is part of SiteVision Portal and Enterprise.

Keep in mind that if all visitors visit via a firewall, this should be set to allow visitors' IP addresses through. Otherwise, SiteVision cannot see where the visitor is visiting from.
