Configuring access to the Collaboration Hub

Collaboration Hub users have the ability to read and comment on diagrams published to the Collaboration Hub.

The Collaboration Hub.

Collaboration hub users are not only (or at least not exclusively) managed in the Explorer under Setup. To enable Hub users access to diagrams, the Collaboration Hub has to be configured correspondingly. In addition, diagrams have to be published explicitly. Depending on the Signavio edition used and on the Collaboration Hub integration, the access configuration may vary:

  • You are using the Signavio On-Premise Edition without Active Directory integration: In this case, you only have to make sure that Hub users can access the URL <serverurl>/intra/portal (if necessary contact your administrator). Once a diagram has been published, all Hub users can access and comment on it.
  • You are using the Signavio On-Premise Edition with Active Directory integration: In this case, you have to configure the Active Directory integration component. It is then necessary to configure read access to the Collaboration Hub. Read more under Manage read access rights.
  • You are using Signavio in combination with the Microsoft SharePoint integration component either as Software-as-a-Service or as On-Premise Edition: More information on SharePoint integration can be found here Microsoft SharePoint Integration.
  • You are using Signavio as Software-as-a-Service and the Collaboration Hub with certificate-based publishing: Hub users are able to access the Collaboration Hub after having installed the safety certificate in their browsers. Please refer to the chapters Creating certificates, Installing the browser certificate und Entering the Collaboration Hub.
  • You are using Signavio as Software-as-a-Service and the Collaboration Hub with SAML 2.0-based authentication: Hub users can authenticate via a third-party account using a SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) SSO service. Read more under Access rights via single-sign-on with SAML 2.0.

Once the Collaboration Hub is configured correctly, published diagrams are available to all Hub users with access rights.

A detailed description on how to publish diagrams is available under Publishing diagrams.
