Certain customers don’t want everybody to go loose on their IBM Connections platform and let everybody freely create their own Communities.
Since IC 3.0.1 there is role which you can use to control who can create a Community.
You can find this role in the Communities application. By default the community-creator role is mapped to the “Special subject” everyone. This mean every one who is logged can
create a Community.
To restrict it, map the community-creator role to the “Special subject” none and pick the users you want to give the rights to create a Community
In the UI users who don’t have the right to create a Community will miss the “Start a Community” button.
