Hi,
How can I enable authentication at collection level rather than document
level(as illustrated in your example collection)? Is there some other way I
can set user password rather than have to use the admin page only?

Regards,
Chaitra

I'm about to try this out myself;

This is what I have been able to find out.

from http://www.sadl.uleth.ca/nz/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=authen-e
--
Authentication is activated by the authenticate directive with the value
collection or document depending on whether authentication is to be
performed on the full collection or on a per-document basis (the default
value is collection). If authentication is on a document basis, then one can
either specify a list of private documents (in which case all others are
public) or a list of public documents (in which case all others are private)
using directives private_documents or public_documents. The documents
themselves are specified using Greenstone document identifiers (separated by
spaces): the easiest way to determine these is to locate each document in
the collection and look at the d argument in its Greenstone URL.

The auth_groups directive specifies the Greenstone groups for to which
access will be permitted, if the document (or collection) is one of those
that requires authentication. It is followed by a group name (or a list of
group names separated by spaces). The Greenstone admin pages allow you to
define groups and add members to them.
--
I'm going to put the following in my collect.cfg file authenticate
collection auth_groups private_cols_group

Then use the admin user to add private_cols_group to each one of my users.

I found this in the Greenstone Archives":
http://www.sadl.uleth.ca/nz/cgi-bin/library?e=&a=d&c=gsarch&cl=search&d=4185
B638.D5D1F298-cs.waikato.ac.nz
1. Source setup.bash in the gsdl directory 2. In the gsdl/etc directory, run
db2txt users.db >users.db.txt 3. Run getpw, and enter your desired password
(twice) 4. Copy the output of the getpw program over the password entry for
the admin user in the users.db.txt file 5. Run cat users.db.txt | txt2db
users.db to write the new users.db file (The instructions are for linux - I
don't know if getpw is available on windows or os x)

in another entry in the greenstone archives from Katherine Don:

The Greenstone Archives are a great resource; I found all this with one
search.

I hope this helps,

Has anyone run Greenstone under the MS Sharepoint server tool? Can the
digital library functionality of Greenstone be done in Sharepoint without
Greenstone? That is, would Greenstone be redundant if you already have
Sharepoint? Or would using Greenstone within it shorten our implementation
time for creating a digital library?
