Our Web application consists of 5 main features, and users
typically only have access to anywhere from 1 to 4 of those 5
feature sets. We only want a user to see topics that they have
purchased (and have this all bundled into one help file.) The only
way I see this happening is to create a RoboHelp project for each
combination of features that they have purchased, this comes out to
be 30. We also have 11 different languages, so now we're talking
about 330 projects. So this is obviously a problem.
Does anyone know how to make this work. The optimal solution
would be passing a query string parameter that restricts what the
user can see.
Talk to your web administrators as well as your developers.
They should be able to provide a setup where the application knows
which combination they have. Then enters the help for only what
they have based on passing a password.
I once conducted a class on RoboHelp where they had different
"User Roles". The web admin was actually one of the class
participants. He was able to play with password protecting or
somehow configuring user privileges for a couple of the other
participants so that the sections they would "see" basically
disappeared from their view becuase of their role. Because WebHelp
folders fell into these areas, they had no access to the topics
Hopefully something there was helpful in some way... Rick
