Setting up Content as a Service

To be able to work with Content as a Service pages in HCL Portal, you must enable it by using an HCL Digital Experience Portal configuration task.

Before you begin

For Content as a Service pages to work, you must have the new functions for HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager Version 8.5 CF05 enabled. For more information, see the readme file for WebSphere Portal and Web Content Manager V8.5 CF05.

About this task

The setup for Content as a Service pages comprises both resources that are shared across virtual portals and virtual portal scoped resources.

Procedure

  1. Change the directory to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory. If you are using IBM® z/OS®, open a UNIX System Services command prompt to change directories.
  2. Run the following command to initiate the setup of shared resources:
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux™ Solaris z/OS: ./ConfigEngine.sh install-caas -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
    • IBM i: ConfigEngine.sh install-caas -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows™: ConfigEngine.bat install-caas -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
  3. Run the following command to initiate the setup of default virtual portal scoped resources:
    • AIX HP-UX Linux Solaris z/OS: ./ConfigEngine.sh install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
    • IBM i: ConfigEngine.sh install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminID=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
  4. If you have virtual portals, run the following command on each virtual portals to initiate the setup of virtual portal scoped resources:
    Note: Add either the -DVirtualPortalContext or -DVirtualPortalHost parameter to the install-caas-vp.
    • AIX HP-UX Linux Solaris z/OS: ./ConfigEngine.sh install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password -DVirtualPortalContext=virtual_portal_context
    • IBM i: ConfigEngine.sh install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password -DVirtualPortalContext=virtual_portal_context
    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat install-caas-vp -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password -DVirtualPortalContext=virtual_portal_context
  5. Restart your portal server.
