You can set defaults in the Settings view that users will not be able to see or change. This allows you to hide tabs in the Settings view from the user. For portlets that do not contain tabs, this denies a role from modifying default portlet settings shown in the Settings view in the portlet.
- From the Roles Manager view, select a role from the list.
- Click the Portlets tab.
- Click for the particular portlet in which you want to deny the role tab access in the Settings view.
- Select the Do not allow users in this role to view or change these values check box.
- Click OK.
- Click Apply.
