I thought we had an FAQ that described how to grant posting access to a closed community via the Admin Console, but I couldn't find it today. If we do, could someone direct me to it. If we don't, could we add the commands to the How do I configure my community? FAQ.

Granting Posting Access To A Closed Community:
The command for adding a user to a closed community would be:
shared <sharedjournal> <action> <user>


community = the initial command
<sharedjournal> = the username of the community
<action> = either add or remove
<user> = username of member to be added or removed

So, for example, to grant posting access to the user 'bms' to my community named 'communitytest', the command would be as follows:

shared communitytest add bms
