    setting a security for individual portlet instances

    mohan Newbie


      Hi,

      I am using jboss-portal-2.6-BETA1. Basically i want that user which is not having a role of admin is not able to add some default portlets like CMSportlet,role portlets to his dashboard so

      I try to set security for individual portlet instances so i login as admin
      and goto management portlet. After selecting security
      link for proper portlet instance a window opens which has checkboxes for user roles but after selecting proper checkbox there is no update button so the changes i made were lost.

      eg: I want to change the security of CMSportletInstance so that user (except admin role) can not be able to view or add CMSportletInstance in his dashboard.

      I also try to put
      <security-constraint>
      <policy-permission>
      <role-name>Admin</role-name>
      <action-name>view</action-name>
      </policy-permission>
      </security-constraint>

      for CMSportletInstance in portlet-instances.xml located at jboss-portal.sar\portal-core.war\WEB-INF which creates instances of these portlets. But it wont work.

      Any suggections !!!
