Configuring the Web Service Configuration portlet

Specify the maximum number of Producer definitions that you want to view in the table, the maximum number of Producers you want to view on each page, and the user attributes that you want to be passed to Producers by default.

About this task

Depending on your access rights, you can configure or edit some standard features. Both the Configure and the Edit Shared Settings modes offer you the same options, but with different consequences:

  • Configuring means that you set the defaults of how the standard features of the portlet are displayed for all users. The portal applies these default settings to all instances and for all users of the portlet. To configure the portlet, select the Configure option from the header bar of the portlet. The Configuration mode is displayed. You can also configure portlets by using the Manage Portlets portlet under Administration.
  • Editing the shared settings means that you customize how the standard features of the portlet are displayed. The portal applies these settings only to the instance of the portlet that the user edits. To edit the portlet, select the Edit shared settings option from the header bar of the portlet. The Edit mode is displayed.

The configuration and edit options are shown in the following list:
