Create an HCL Portal profile | HCL Digital Experience

During the installation process, the IBM Installation Manager creates the HCL Portal profile. If you are on HCL Portal Version 8.5 without a Combined Cumulative Fix applied, then you can use this option in the Configuration Wizard to create an additional profile.

Configuration Wizard

On the Configuration Wizard home page, click More Options to find Create an HCL Portal Profile.
