This section introduces how to create HTML+ portlets.
Before you start
You are only allowed to create or edit HTML+ portlet definition in the PPM server that is running in development mode. If you want to use HTML+ portlets in a production-mode server, do the following:
- Create or edit HTML+ portlet definition on a server running in development mode, and export it using the kMigratorExtract.sh script.
- Import the portlet definition to the production server using the kMigratorImport.sh script.
For details about development mode, see Enable development mode for PPM server.
