The University of Minnesota recently upgraded to PeopleTools 8.56. This upgrade included Fluid Navigation with dozens of custom navigation collections. All the navigation collections are represented by tiles on carefully designed functional homepages.
Tile security was a major concern. We required tile security to reflect the navigation collection security. Our options were public access to the tiles (everyone can see the tile even if they have no access to navigation collection content) or manual security updates. Most peer institutions settled on public access.
The university developed a custom process that synchronizes tile security with an aggregate of the navigation collection security.
The title is a play on “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” – “Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink.”
