I'd like to show all organizations on a page list, and any user could send request to join.
Then the admin of that organization should see the message from his workflow, and give the permission.

Does liferay support such function by default?

Thanks

If you are not looking for heirarchy then you can use Communities or Sites(in Liferay 6.1) to have that functionality. Community should be created of type Restricted. And you can use communities portlet to show the community to which he can join. For Restricted Community unless teh community admin approves he will not be part of the community.

Sandeep

Thanks Sandeep. But community can not be member of another community. What I need is a community(site), and many organizations are members of that community. User could join the organizations but can not join the community directly.

Thanks, David,
I see. Is it possible to create such function by Hook or Ext?

The easy answer is to say anything is possible, but realistically I'm not sure how much would be involved to make this happen...

Hi there,

Did anyone managed to find a solution to this? We have a similar situation, where users may search and request to join the Oraganization.
Appreciate any responses.

Thanks,
Nikhil

There is 2 alternative ways:
1. Modify Site(community) to have hierachical structure
2. Create portlet to allow users to join organization.

I've done both and method 2 may be easier.
