    unable to add group pages and navigation

    Joerg Harm Newbie

      Hi,

       

      after configuring an own portal for GateIn 3.1.0.GA on JBossAS and adding some groups I tried to add pages and navigation for the groups. At the initial start of the server I get the following exception:

      11:41:27,812 ERROR [NewPortalConfigListener] NewPortalConfig error: Cannot insert page org.exoplatform.portal.pom.data.PageData@b8ecc5 as the corresponding portal /organisation/mygroup/subgroup with type ObjectType[interface org.gatein.mop.api.workspace.Site] does not exist
      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot insert page org.exoplatform.portal.pom.data.PageData@b8ecc5 as the corresponding portal /organisation/mygroup/subgroup with type ObjectType[interface org.gatein.mop.api.workspace.Site] does not exist

      I haven't a clue how to solve the problem.

       

      Kind regards,

          There were some missing slashes in my portal-configuration.xml (parameter "group.configuration"). Now I get the following exception:

          May be, there is another missing slash somewhere.

            In navigation.xml I wrote

             

            {code:xml}

            <page-reference>

                 group::/organization/mygroup/subgroup::pagename

            </page-reference>

            {code}

             

            instead of

             

            {code:xml}

            <page-reference>group::/organization/mygroup/subgroup::pagename</page-reference>

            {code}

             

            Using the later form I don't get the exception anymore, but the navigation does not show up in the group menu. The referenced pages are shown in the page management. Adding pages and navigation nodes for the groups /platform/administrators and /platform/users works fine. The pages and navigation nodes configured in the main portal ("portal") are added,too. How can I avoid this?

             

            added bug report https://jira.jboss.org/browse/GTNPORTAL-1469

              1. What happened if you manually create group/add navigation/ add page via UI?

               

              2. Could you post your configuration for your group?

                Now it works. There was a typo (organisation instead of organization) in the path of the pages.xml and navigation.xml files as well as in the parameter "group.configuration" of the NewPortalConfigListener.

                 

                To prevent the problem described in my last posting the page-reference should be trimmed while parsing the navigation.xml.

                 

                Is there a reason why the org.exoplatform.portal.config.PortalACLPlugin ignores all parameters but "super.user" and "portal.creation.roles"? Particularly, I would like to change the portal administrator groups.

                  Legacy code needs to be refactored

                   

                  The PortalACLPlugin is designed as subclass of BaseComponentPlugin. By convention, it should be configured as a plugin of the component UserACL ( something like <component-plugins><component-plugin> ). However, PortalACLPlugin is instantiated with the whole InitParams of UserACL component. That explains why the plugin does not take all parameters

                    Joerg Harm Newbie

                    BaseComponentPlugin just takes a name and a description. The method UserACL.addPortalACLPlugin(PortalACLPlugin) only changes the super user and the portal creation roles. There is no way to change the other attributes of the UserACL via PortalACLPlugin.

                     

                    The init parameter "portal.administrator.groups" of the UserACL is used to set the property "adminGroups" of the UserACL object. The result of a call to UserACL.getAdminGroups() is used in many places as parameter of the method UserACL.isUserInGroup(String) which expects exactly one group id. Obviously, it's not possible to configure more than one portal admin group. The names of the init parameter and the UserACL property are misleading, not to say wrong.
