Setting up groups derived from lookup

This is slightly technical, so if you are in any doubt please contact falcon-support and ask us to do it for you.

Setting up the configuration

Go to the following URL or navigate to Site Setup >ZMI > acl_users > ucamgroups:

https://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/YOURSITE/acl_users/ucamgroups/manage_ucamgroups or
https://www.YOURSITE.cam.ac.uk/acl_users/ucamgroups/manage_ucamgroups

You need to access http://www.lookup.cam.ac.uk as well at this point and look up your institution. There you will find out your institution ID and can select from the groups your institution has.

On the Falcon screen:

  • Add a list of lookup INSTIDs and groups to the first two lines (separated by a space).
  • Ignore the third line - this can be used if you need to add a dynamic group from another institution (ask falcon-support@ucs if you think this applies to you)..

Using the groups

The list of instids and groups listed there then appear on:

https://www-falcon.csx.cam.ac.uk/site/YOURSITE/@@usergroup-groupprefs


(this is the usual screen for looking at available groups)


as inst:NAME and group:VALUE

and you should be able to use them as normal Plone groups.

  • Since the members of the group are added dynamically, you won't be able to see a list of the members of the group.
  • If you go to the 'Groups' tab, select the group and then select the 'Group Properties' tab, you can add a title for the group to describe who that group's members are.
