Managing Forum in Community Portals in Dynamics 365 (Using Forum Access Permissions) – Part 2

Suppose we have following 3 forums in our Community Portal

  • And we want a particular portal user to have rights to manage a specific forum, say for e.g. test forum in our case.
  • For this let us create a new web role, here we have specified the Community Portal as the WebSite.

  • Navigate to Community – Forum Access Permissions

  • Create a new permission for the Test Forum and assign the newly created Web Role.

    (Specify Forum as Test Forum and Right as Grant Change)

  • Open the contact record (portal user) in CRM and assign the new web role.

  • Login to the community portal.
  • On opening the General Discussion forum, the user doesn’t have any edit rights.

  • On opening the Test Forum, the user has the modify rights

Hope it helps.
