          Anish , I would appreciate if you could avoid to post in 2 different forums the same question.

          Either you downloaded GateIn Portal, and you should ask here *or* you downloaded JBoss Portal and you would ask where you did your other post The specified item was not found.


          Thanks in advance and I hope you understand

              Make sure you log in as that user first. The portal doesn't create a dashboard (user site) until they log in.

                Thanks Nick

                I am sure that i am logged in with as  user in GateIn. But the user page worked if  i add that user under predefinedOwner tag in portal-configuration.xml like following way




                            <object type="org.exoplatform.portal.config.NewPortalConfig">

                              <field name="predefinedOwner">

                                <collection type="java.util.HashSet">









                              <field name="ownerType">



                              <field name="templateLocation">





                (In above manager and admin can create user page because they are under predefinedOwner tag )

                But in the case of adding  user page for users who are added programatically i got the above exception. I am using the following code for adding users programatically


                OrganizationService orgService = (OrganizationService)PortalContainer.getInstance().getComponentInstanceOfType(OrganizationService.class);

                User user =new UserImpl("supervisor");





                orgService.getUserHandler().createUser(user, false);

                  By default, user site is lazily created (performance reason). You can change this behaviour by changing this property:

                  gatein.portal.idm.createuserportal in tomcat/gatein/conf/configuration.properties


                  Or you'll need to create User site first, before creating User site's pages:

                  Site userSite = portal.createSite(new SiteId(user));


                  //Now create user site's page
