HCL Digital Experience Portlet API Web Content Viewer and Remote Web Content Viewer

If you use the Web Content Viewer portlet or the Remote Web Content Viewer portlet that are based on the HCL Portlet API, then you must plan for the replacement of those portlets when migrating.

About this task

Both portlets were removed from Web Content Manager Version 8.5 and are no longer supported. You must replace them with the JSR 286 version of the Web Content Viewer portlet that is available.

If you already use only the JSR 286 version, then you do not need to plan for any additional steps for migration.

Procedure

Check which version you currently have installed on your source environment.
  1. Click the Administration menu icon. Then, click Portlet Management > Web Modules.
  2. Search for the following files names:
