What is Delegate Access?

Delegate Access is an optional Add-On available from Jive PS that allows a select group of users to create and collaborate on content to be "ghost authored" under another user when published. This allows public relations and executive support teams to author under a community shared persona, or post as an executive.

 

See Delegate Access (Ghost Blog) FAQ for more details.

 

What's Changing?

 

           Embedded images break delegate posts from unconfigured ghost writer groups

Resolved: When content is created in a place not specifically specified in "PlaceID" field in add on configuration is delegate posted with an embedded image, delegate posting fails. (JIRA: BOO-85)

 

         Non required event fields throw error if omited

Resolved: If an event is missing non-required fields, delegate posting will fail. (JIRA: BOO-86)

 

How will this affect my community?

We are updating a middleware service, this will not impact any community. No downtime is required. Delegate Access posting will be down briefly after 7:00 PM Pacific, August 12th, while the new features are added.
