I have been trying to figure out the best way to have multiple Business Units and locking a manager of a business unit to that business unit and only that business unit.

For example, the manager of Example Company 1 are Test User 1 and Test User 4. They can edit anyone's details/password in Example Company 1 but cannot even see Example Company 2 or anybody in that business unit or anybody else in that domain. Test User 2 and Test User 3 cannot change anybody else's password but their own.

Example Company 1
- Test User 1 (Manager)
- Test User 2
- Test User 3
- Test User 4 (Manager)

Example Company 2
- Test User 5
- Test User 6 (Manager)

Is this possible and how would I go about this task. I've been able to work with Blind Users and that is only a part of the solution and doesn't give me all the functionality that this particular situation is requiring.

Hello,

Today we are releasing Adaxes 2011.1, which allows you to do what you need. As soon as all the data is uploaded, I'll post here a link to a tutorial that describes how to do what you need.

This is exactly what we were looking for! Thank you soo much! Is there a way the default page they are redirected to? Instead of being home, it would always be their own "My Properties"?

Yes, it is possible to do this. However this option is not available in the Web Interface Customization tool, and you'll need to modify the Web.Config file manually.

Make sure the Web Interface Customization tool is NOT running.

Using a text editor open the Web.Config file of the Web Interface that you want to configure. By default this file is located in the following folder:
Administrators: C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\Admin\*
Help Desk:
C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\HelpDesk\
Self-Service:
C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Web Interface\SelfService\*

Set the useMyPropertiesPageAsDefault attribute of the web.ui XML element to true.

<configuration>
  ...
  <softerra.adaxes>
    <web.ui doNotShowExecutionLogForSucceededOperation="true" useMyPropertiesPageAsDefault="true">
0

Just a note, if it does not exist in the context such as

<configuration>
  ...
   <softerra.adaxes>
     <web.ui adaxesConfigurationSetId="{59f55590-4eff-4721-9aa7-77f26a861b49}">

Adding it will make it work just fine.

<configuration>
  ...
   <softerra.adaxes>
     <web.ui adaxesConfigurationSetId="{59f55590-4eff-4721-9aa7-77f26a861b49}" useMyPropertiesPageAsDefault="true">
0

Thank you for the note!
