MC | LMS - Permissioning LMS Content Through Atlas

There are currently two ways to automatically have users added to permissioned groups from Atlas into the LMS. This article will explain the setup required within both the LMS and Atlas.

Setting up Groups

If you would like to permission specific content only to a certain set of users, the first thing you will want to do is set up a group within the LMS and give that group permission to access the appropriate package(s). First, you will add the group(s) in the LMS by navigating to Groups > Group Management and creating the appropriate group(s).

Enter a Group Description if desired, ensure the "visibility" check box is selected, and click Save.  When "Visibility" is selected, and the Group is assigned to a package, only users in that group will be able to access the content of the package.

Important note: Whatever you name the group within the LMS, you will need to name your event or affiliation code within Atlas the exact same way. If the group name and event name/affiliation code do not match exactly (capitalization, punctuation, etc.), the integration will not work correctly and users will not be added to the LMS group:

Adding users to groups through event registration

Once you have an event set up within Atlas and a group by the same name set up within the LMS, once users register for that event and their registrations are connected to their profile (for members and non-members), the API integration will automatically add registered users to the group within the LMS, giving them access to any packages for which that group has access. Using events for group permissioning has a few good use cases, but works especially well for date-based courses (such as live webinars, etc.)

 

Adding users to groups through affiliation codes

 Once you have a group set up within the LMS that matches the name of an affiliation code within Atlas and have assigned that affiliation code to the appropriate users within Atlas, the next time that user logs into the LMS, they will automatically be added to the appropriate group and gain access to any packages for which that group is permissioned.
