We have "Site", "Group", "User" on the portal menu, Dashboard page is in "User" site, page in this site will belongs to specific user (can't share to others, that's mean each user will have a difference instance of dashboard page). Other pages in portal will be shared to group of users base on their permission. Once a page is edited, it will be visible to others that have access permission
Notice that dashboard page is actually a normal page (you can edit site layout, or page layout as you want) except that this page will not be shared to other user. You can more navigations, pages to this "User" site, and these pages can be personalized
Thanks for the answer.
I'm still a bit puzzed around the navigation/page creation for each user.
When I look at the documentation, it says: "Three files configure the user navigation (
portlet-preferences.xml). They are located in the
predefinedOwneris username that want to create the navigation. For example, if administrator want to create navigation for user
root, he has to locate the configuration files in
In our mind we would like to create a default navigation for the users that they can personalize afterwards. Does this mean we need to create these configuration files for each user? Can't they have one by default upon user creation?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Yes, you can create DEFAULT templates (site, navigation, page) for each users. That guide tell you to create configuration for specific user, if there is no config files for a user, portal will use the configuration files in portal.war/WEB-INF/conf/portal/user/template/user
We have that example in the portal.war
