ProcedureTo Create a Producer That Supports Registration

  1. If you are not on the Producer tab, see To Navigate to the WSRP Producer Options in the Portal Server Administration Console.

  2. Select the organization's DN (distinguished name) where you want to create a producer and click the Producer tab.

    Each organization can offer any number of WSRP producers. The WSRP Producers table displays all producers that already exist. Select the DN of an organization or sub-organization based on the availability of portlets.

    Note –

    Organizations are created in Sun Java System Identity Server.

  3. Click New to create a new producer.

  4. Type a name to identify the producer.

    The name of the producer should be unique and should contain valid characters. The producer name is used to create the WSDL (Web Services Definition Language) URL of this producer.

  5. Select Required for Registration to create a producer that supports registration.

    If a producer does not support registration, it can not identify the consumer because the producer does not build a relationship with the consumer. Hence the consumer can not customize the portlets that are offered by the producer. Select Support Registration if you want the producer to support customization of portlets.

  6. Select Supported for Inband Registration if you want the consumer to enter the details using Portal Server application interface.

  7. To add a registration property, click Add Row. Enter the values. Enter the name of the registration property and description.

    Registration properties are the details that you want to get from the consumer while the consumer registers to a specific producer. The registration properties entered by the consumer can be validated through the Registration Validation class.

  8. Select Supported for out-of-band Registration if you want the consumer to provide the details through out-of-band communication, such as phone calls, e-mails, and so on.

  9. Click Next.

    The Review screen displays the details that you entered. Review the details. You can click Previous and change the details you entered.

  10. Click Finish to create the producer.
