Crafter Social Admin Console UI

Crafter Social Admin Console consists of a single WAR file that depends on access to both Crafter Social and Crafter Profile. This web application provides a simple way to manage all data related to permissions and user generated content without the need to call the Crafter Social API directly.

Installation

New Installation

You can follow the instructions for building a complete bundle as described here, if you add the parameter -Pcrafter.social=true the bundle will contain crafter-social.war and crafter-social-admin.war.

Existing Installation

If you want to add the Crafter Social Admin Console to an existing installation, you only need to build or download the WAR file making sure it matches the version of all other components.

To deploy the application you only need to move the WAR file into INSTALL_DIR/apache-tomcat/webapps
