    automatically deploy one portlet inside the dashboard on jbo

    Felipe Oliveira Newbie

      Hi there,
      I'm using jboss-portal-2.6.4

      I want to deploy my portlet directly inside my dashboard view.
      I already make my portlet appear in the portal pages but when I try change the <parent-ref> tag





      <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>

      <parent-ref>dashboard.dashboardpage</parent-ref> --> I don't know how to find this path ?

      I get a error message telling me that the path this path is wrong, so should I make another thing to automatically deploy my portlet inside the dashboard? Is there a way to do that?

      Thanks.

          Hi,

          watch the \jboss-portal.sar\conf\data\default-object.xml for

          dashboard portal. Configure the template portal, then your portlets will

          occur in the dashboards.

              One more question.
              I would like to create pages on the dashboard for all user that have a specific role.

              Is there an way to do that?


              <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
              <parent-ref>dashboard:(role??)</parent-ref>

              <page-name>mypagename</page-name>
              .....



              I want to create a new page on one user dashboard like this:
              <parent-ref>dashboard:user</parent-ref> --> so if i deploy in this way it will create a new page on the user dashboard, How can I do the same but for a role?

              Thanks

              Felipe

                Hi,

                ENV Details:
                JBoss portal - 2.6.5.SP1
                Jboss App Server - 4.2.2.GA

                I have the same requirement of adding my portlet as an alreday existing portlet on dashboard page and removing the default portlets that appear on dashboard - CMSPortlet, JSPPortlet, IdentityUserPortlet. As suggested in this thread, I tried modifying default-object.xml as shown below, but it does not work for me. I cannot see my portlet on the dashboard and can still see the 3 default portlets. Any suggestions ?

                here are the contents of my default-object.xml

                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

                      Hello,

                      Did you find a solution to your question? I tried modifying default-object.xml as specified and it doesn't work for me either. I still only see the default 3 portlets.

                      Using JBoss portal - 2.6.6

                      Thanks

                        Hi,

                        You should modify your template portal with admin user. After this, create a new user. This user must have your new dashboard configuration. Old users keep the old template configuration (the one when they were created).
