CWL Password Protected Pages

Requested by: Amber Hanson

Status: On Hold

Change to something that already exists?: No
Requires a new CMS Component?: No
Requires New Functionality?: Yes
Estimated Completion Date: TBD


[Update Mar 30, 2021, JS]: JS, JE and Amber met to discuss the alternate solution JE suggested. We noted that SPARC has now moved to Sharepoint. Sharepoint does seem like a better choice compared to the OKCMS, the pros being it is separate from the OKCMS and is in fact a private and protected portal for internal communications and resources. It is fully integrated with other MS products like Word, Outlook, etc. More information here:  Amber/someone from the ORS team to check with the SPARC team to gather more information on why they chose SPARC, also to connect with FHSD folks as they are already using Sharepoint as their internal resources portal.]

[Update Feb 25 2021: CWL authentication will be enabled on UBCO CMS as part of the ongoing UBCO Campus-wide CWL migration project 2021+. The current ‘Authenticated Page’ Template would automatically change over to CWL authentation instead of Novell.  -SQ]

Hi Amber,
Unfortunately at this particular moment, we don’t have the ability to offer CWL protected pages in the Okanagan based CMS. We do have a project on our team’s list to implement this feature, but it’s a fairly complex project and I don’t have a time line for it at the moment. I can keep you updated if you like on the status of this. In the meantime, we do have an option for password protecting a page. WordPress has a standard way of creating a password for any page, to do this you click on the edit link next to where it says “Visibility” in the publish section of the edit screen. (screenshot –

Let me know if you have any questions.




Original Submission:

“CWL password protected forms and pages, aligned with UBCV for consistency across portfolio units (eg. ORS and Institutional Programs Office). Some of the guidance/instructions/form submissions are intended for UBC audiences only. See example below.
