In this topic, we are going to discuss the CREATION OF USERS IN FATWIRE. To create a user in Fatwire, you need to login with ADMIN Credentials. Users can be created in Fatwire using ADVANCED UI, and the WEM UI. We are going to learn how to create the users in ADVANCED UI of FATWIRE.


1. Login to the ADVANCED  UI with Admin credentials.

2. Go to the ADMIN tab of the Advanced UI.

3. Expand “CONTENT SERVER MANAGEMENT TOOLS“. After expanding this, you will be able to see SITE, ELEMENT, ACLs, USER, etc.

4. Double click on USER. The following screen appears. In this screen, as shown below, we can MODIFY USERS, ADD USERS, DELETE USERS, MODIFY USER ATTRIBUTES.

5. Enter a name for the user in the ENTER USER NAME field. This name will be the login username for the new user.

6. Click on ADD USER radio button.

7. Click on the OK button. The following screen appears.

8. Assign the ACCESS PRIVILEGES for the user, as required.

9. Enter the PASSWORD, and re enter the same in RE-ENTER PASSWORD field.

10. Click on the ADD button.


In our previous posts, we have seen how to work with Static Publishing. In this post, we will see how to work with Dynamic Publishing.

DYNAMIC PUBLISHING, also known as MIRROR TO SERVER PUBLISHING method, is one of the important Publishing methodologies of Fatwire. It is built with the Content Server Mirror API to copy approved assets from the Content Server database on one system to the Content Server database on another system.


The following image explains how the Mirror to Server publishing works in simple.

To be more precise,

1. When the Dynamic Publishing is done, the Local content server (on which the main database, file structure, etc are there) mirrors,i.e, copies the entire file structure to the remote server (the machine which hosts the site).

2. The user requests a page.

3. The request will be received by the server (i.e, the mirrored remote CS Server).

4. The CS dynamically generates the pagelets and pages, and delivers it to the webserver.

5. The webserver then delivers it to the end user who has requested the page.

In the previous post, we have discussed how to render text stored in a blob. In this post, we will know how to render an image which is stored in the blob.

The following code is used to render the image blob. Here, I’m using render:satelliteblob tag to render the image.

<!--load the child asset -->-

<assetset:setasset name="myasset" id='<%=ics.GetVar("childId") %>' type='<%= ics.GetVar("childType") %>' />

<assetset:getmultiplevalues name="myasset" byasset="false" prefix="atlst">

   <assetset:sortlistentry attributetypename="Content_A" attributename="my_image"/>


<!--Render the Image -->

<ics:listloop listname="Imagelist">

    <ics:listget listname="Imagelist" fieldname="value" output="o_value"/>

    <render:satelliteblob service="img src" blobtable="MungoBlobs" blobkey="id" 

                    blobwhere='<%=ics.GetVar("o_value")%>' blobcol="urldata"/>

//In this way, we can render an image in Fatwire using the Satellite blob tag.
