Adding Melete to Sites

Update Sakai Roles (under realms) to include Melete permissions to your roles. If you are upgrading Melete in your Sakai instance, no roles changes are needed.

  1. Log on as Sakai admin.
  2. Check appropriate Melete permissions under the roles in !site.template.course.

    1. Check for instructor, teaching assistant types of roles (maintain) to which you want to give ‘authoring / manage’ rights.

    2. Check melete.student for student types of custom roles that you have (access) to which you want to give ‘viewing’ rights.

  3. If you have project sites and related roles in !site.template.project, appropriate permissions (melete.student or need to be checked as defined above, based on what rights you want to give to the roles.


a. If you fail to check the melete.student and permissions for your roles, Melete will not work properly. 

b. If you add Melete to existing sites, users will not have the permissions that you checked. You will need to use !site.helper or other script to propagate the Melete permissions to existing sites. 

Common Problems

1) If you encounter an error upon starting Tomcat and clicking on Modules, and the browser reads, “You do not have access to the modules. Please contact a systems administrator,” check to see if you have set up Melete permissions correctly. Refer to Melete Permissions for more details.

2) If you have problems importing the Melete tutorial or any other IMS files into Melete, check to make sure you have followed the relevant step in Download Melete, and that you have set up and configured the /var/melete/packagefiles directory.

3) If upon importing a file, you get an error that says the file is too big, you can set the “content.upload.ceiling” sakai property to a desired value. If this property is not set, then Melete assumes the max value as 50MB.
