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?

 

Bugfix When Scheduling Blog Post

Addresses issue from previous release (8.4.18) when scheduling blog posts. While the post was scheduled successfully, a misleading error was being thrown and no audit log entry was created. This change addresses that. (JIRA: BOO-96)

 

Embedded Images in Polls allowed in Ghost Writer Groups not Configured in Add-on Management Screen

Resolves issue where if an image link is embedded in a poll, that image will not be present in the delegate posted copy of the content. (JIRA: BOO-97)

 

Schedule

The deploy is scheduled for September 30th at 7pm PST.

 

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, September 30th, while the new features are added.
