We are thinking about making all our groups hidden groups and I would like to know if there is a way to have the Group Studio Activity Channel automatically recognize which groups a person is a member. The user wouldn't need the option to necessarily choose which groups to monitor. I believe this is how the Course Studio channel works.
Also, is there a way to base group membership on role (i.e. if you have X role then you are automatically a member of X group). I will create custom roles in Banner and the portal and populate the members.
Sorry for the elementary questions but it has been awhile since I have played around with Luminis that I have forgotten what little I knew.
Question, does every targeted content channel or link have to have the public role? If not, how can I delete the public role and have a specific role assigned.
I have created a custom role, and it is not assigned to me. When I add the role to the channel or link it appears as such (ROLE=Public and ROLE=newRole). Since I do not have the newRole assigned to me, I assumed that I should not see the targeted content, however, I still see it.
Our Luminis Portal is extrememly slow and appears to hangs when the Banner Oracle PROD database Host server (not just the instance) is shutdown down.
If we shutdown the Banner Oracle PROD database instance, the Oracle Listener and/or Self-Service Banner on fmw11g all other portal funtionality is unaffected.
Our release levels are:

Anyone using a file manager with Luminis IV? I've modified and configured ESUP File Manager Portlet to display files for download which works fine in uPortal 2.5. However, the moment I move the portlet to Luminis and modify the emptySessionPath to "true" for Tomcat's Connectors, luminis is unable to render any of it's channels in Internet Explorer. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Has anyone incorporated a grade book into Luminis? This is the biggest missing component of Course Studio.
Some schools use Blackboard/Moodle/Sakai for every course so faculty can post grades for assignments/quizzes/tests. We only use Blackboard for on-line courses to keep our licensing costs manageable.
I asked this back in 2009 and got no responses. Hopefully someone has figured it out by now. Has anyone incorporated the Sakai/Moodle grade book component only in Luminis?

Mostly we've heard them say that they don't like that all of their courses are listed without a CRN or Section Number. It makes it very difficult because when a professor teaches 3 of the same courses, they all appear identical in the channel--there's no way to distinguish which one is which. Does anyone know how we can modify this?
We also have the channel set up so that it sorts by term, but they argue that it doesn't display what they are currently teaching at the top of the list; it displays the oldest courses first.
Has anyone attempted to control the content of a channel using links in a different channel? Assume you have two channels on a tab, one is nothing but a fixed list of links. If you click on one of the links the url opens up in the second channel. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
This might not be the best place to ask, but I was just kind of curious to see if anyone has utilized Banner Channels outside of Luminis (and MyCampus)?
I previously posted some code that I put together to read user account attributes from LDAP.
To accompany that utility I also wrote another that is able to enable portal accounts.
There are a couple of ways a user's account could end up being disabled :
If users attempt to login too many times successively their account will be disabled
If they attempt to login too many times with the wrong password their account will be disabled
Since these scenarios have a tendency to occur more often than we would prefer (especially after breaks)
