Manage Users, Groups and Site Options Using a User-Friendly Web Interface
Design and secure Nexus sites without needing to code HTML or do any programming. Within minutes, you'll be ready to design pages, add content and manage users.
Creating groups is a core element of your site structure and Nexus provides a well laid out interface to manage groups. All users are members of a group or sub group and pages, drop down menus and authorities for applications and documents can easily be assigned to specific groups. Group managers can manage members of their group and design group pages.
Nexus users can be based on IBM i, LDAP or Nexus user profiles. Administrators can give end users authority to change their own settings to customize the look of their Nexus pages, such as the skin, default main page, show/hide header, menu activation and order of links.
Only administrators have access to the Site Settings where they can change the following site options:
- Site Defaults: site name, path, welcome message, skin, etc.
- Login Options: Keep me logged in, user creation, etc.
- Password settings including number of invalid attempts
- Duration of session
- Exit and Entry point APIs after successful login or log out
Site Skins for a Professional Look and Feel
Nexus ships with many different pre-defined site 'Skins' (graphic designs) that provide Nexus Portal's professional look. Skins are completely customizable and extensible for a consistent design that reflects your corporate image. Nexus also includes a WYSIWYG Skin editor.
WYSIWYG Site Skin Editor
A Nexus site's look, including the colors, fonts and header, are determined by the Site Skin you select. You can select an existing skin or create your own using the Site Skin WYSISWG editor. The editor allows you to create a skin with your corporate identity without knowing any HTML or CSS. You can change the colors, fonts and header and preview your changes immediately.
Drag-and-Drop Page Design
Administrators can create site-wide pages accessible by all members, group managers can design pages for members of their group and end users can be authorized to design their own personal pages. Pages are created using a drag-and-drop feature for organizing the portlets they choose for a page.
Create Portlets with Any Web App or Web Page
Authorized end users or administrators can add any web application or web page to Nexus as an Include portlet. You can add web email, news and stock tickers or any other existing web page or web application so that your Nexus users can access all company information from one access point which saves valuable time.
