APM analysts and administrators can create portlet definitions. Portlet definitions define the look and feel of a portlet. Portlet definitions can include such information as the type of portlet, its data source, display options such as which labels and columns to display, its layout, which users and groups have access to the portlet, and definitions of the filter fields. You can create multiple portlets based on a single portlet definition.
Note: When you create a portlet definition, you must assign it a data source. If you need a new data source, request it from the APM administrator.
For instructions for creating and maintaining portlet definitions and portlets, see the Creating Portlets and Modules guide.
