Initial Setup for Enablement
Configure Enablement Features
To follow this tutorial, it is necessary to correctly install and configure enablement , which requires third-party products, such as MySQL and FFmpeg.
When Adobe Analytics is configured for the community site , more information is available in the reports generated on enablement resources and learning paths assigned to community members (learners).
Configure Email for Notifications
The notifications feature, available by default for all sites created using the Communities Sites console, provides an email channel for notifications.
What is necessary is for email to be properly configured for the site.
See Configuring Email .
Enable the Tunnel Service
When creating a community site in the author environment, the tunnel service makes possible the ability to create and manage users and user groups registered in the publish environment (members), assign roles to trusted community members, and assign content to learners.
For more information see Managing Users and User Groups .
For simple instructions to enable the tunnel service, see Tunnel Service .
Create Enablement Members and Groups
For an enablement community site, site visitors should not be able to self-register nor use social login .
Instead, with the tunnel service enabled, the Members console is used to register new members in the publish environment.
In this tutorial, three members are created in the publish environment. Two members will be become members of a user group that is assigned to a learning path, while the third member will become an enablement resource contact.
A fourth user is created in the author environment and assigned the roles of Communities Administrator and Community Enablement Manager.
These members are being created prior to creation of the Enablement Tutorial community site.
If they were created afterwards, they could be added as members of the Enablement Tutorial members group during member creation.
Instead, later, they'll be assigned to the members group .
Quinn Harper - Enablement Resource Contact and Moderator
Create a member who will be added to the Community Site's member group once the site has been created. This membership will allow the member to be assigned as the enablement Resource Contact when an enablement resource is created for the site.
