Portlets

Portlets are displayed on PPM Dashboard pages. They display real-time information relevant to your role as an analyst.

Two types of portlets are available in APM: shared and configurable.

  • Shared portlets. Shared portlets are preconfigured portlets provided by APM or configured by an APM analyst or administrator. They are predefined versions of the configurable portlets. Shared portlets are displayed on the shared PPM Dashboard pages. You can edit shared portlets only if you first add them to a private Dashboard page.

    Shared portlets for analysts contain information related to application portfolio data, workstreams, transformation proposals, and survey requests.

    Note: Shared portlets are also known as Micro Focus-supplied portlets.

  • Configurable portlets. APM provides several configurable portlets that you can add to your private PPM Dashboard pages and personalize. Configurable portlets are highly customizable—by setting filters, you can configure the data that is displayed.

    Configurable portlets for analysts contain information related to application portfolio data, applications, workstreams, transformation proposals, survey requests, and surveys to which the analyst has been asked to respond.

For descriptions of the shared and configurable portlets provided for an analyst, see the online help and PPM Dashboard Pages and Portlets.

If you are also assigned the user role, APM also provides you with the shared and configurable portlets for users. For descriptions of the shared and configurable portlets for users, see the Application Portfolio Management User's Guide.

For instructions for personalizing the configurable portlets, see the PPM Getting Started guide.
