Migrating Portlet Definitions

Use the PPM Portlet Definition Migrator object type to migrate portlet definitions. The following are things to consider when migrating portlet definitions:

  • When migrating an Micro Focus-supplied portlet definition, the portlet's data source file is automatically migrated at the same time as the portlet definition.

  • When migrating a standard portlet definition, the portlet's data source file is automatically migrated at the same time as the portlet definition.

  • When migrating a Java portlet definition, you must configure the source and destination servers with the same set of Web applications (such as WARs) before migrating the Java portlet definition.

  • When migrating a WSRP portlet definition, the migration of the portlet definition is sufficient for the WSRP portlet to work. Migrating a WSRP portlet definition might fail under the following conditions:

    • If the URL uses a port number. If you move that portlet to a different machine whose WSRP provider runs on a different port number, the portlet stops working.

    • If a WSRP portlet definition shares a firewall or a private network with a WSRP producer. You cannot migrate the portlet definition outside of that private network or firewall protected area (because the machine is not accessible).
