Different Roles to Access a Portal Over the Internet and on the Intranet

Hi all -

We have a requirement that when a employee logs into the Portal from the Internet they are assigned a different role than when they login from their corporate network.


- From the Internet John Smith can only access his ESS role

- From the corporate network, John Smith can access his ESS role and his SRM role

In the above example, we do not want John Smith to access the SRM role from the Internet, for security reasons.

Is there a way to implement such a solution without using multiple portals (one internal and one external)?

Hi Bertrand,

the best way to ensure that a specific URL isn't available from the Internet or Intranet is to use a Reverse Proxy with URL filtering that will analyze if a request is coming from the Intranet (ex: and allows the access of an URL (http://server/intranet) or not (http://server/internet)
