How do I give non-MIT collaborator content management access?


  • Question

I can't seem to find any way to login other than the touchstone screen, although under manage people you can set up a non-MIT person with access. We have a collaborator we want to make blog posts updating his progress on the project.




You can set up a "local" Drupal account (username/password) for that person, and direct them to log in using that instead of Touchstone. The username/password login can be reached by going directly to (for example).

Note the "https" instead of "http" at the beginning of the URL. While Touchstone logins automatically forward the user to https, we have had reports that users logging in with their username/password using http do not automatically go to https, making it look like the login failed. We're looking into this.


That worked great, thank you.
