A Spaces User Interface URLs

In view of the many options available for defining navigation in your portal, a consistent and reliable method for accessing pages and application user interface pages (UI) is essential. This requirement is easily met through Spaces application user interface URLs—or pretty URLs.

This appendix provides the syntax for the pretty URLs in WebCenter Portal: Spaces. Instead of clicking navigation links, or if navigation links do not exist to certain pages, you can enter a pretty URL in your browser to directly access user profiles, pages, and administration screens.

Pretty URLs are shorter than standard URLs, which shields users from complex application page URLs.

This appendix includes the following sections:

A.1 User Interface URLs for Application Administration Pages

Table A-1 lists and describes the URL syntax to use to access Spaces application Administration pages. These pages are accessible only to Spaces application administrators and are used for application configuration.

Table A-1 User Interface URLs to WebCenter Portal: Spaces Administration Pages

Target Pretty URL Syntax

Application Administration page

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/admin

General subpage of the Configuration page

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/admin/general

Personal Pages subpage of the Pages page

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/admin/personalpages

System Pages subpage of the Pages page

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/admin/systempages


A.2 User Interface URLs for Business Role Pages and System Pages

Use the same syntax for URLs that target business role pages and system pages:

/webcenter/spaces/system/page/pageName

For example:

/webcenter/spaces/system/page/Documents

See Also:

For information about business role pages and system pages, see Chapter 7, "Administering Portal Pages ."

A.3 User Interface URLs for User Profiles

Use Profile pretty URLs to navigate to your own or another user's Profile page. Note that when you omit the user name or when the user name is the current user's name, the URL launches the My Profile page; but if the user name is provided and is not the current user's name, the URL launches the User Profile page.

See Also:

For information about the My Profile and User Profile pages, see Table 7-2, "Seeded System Pages".

Table A-2 lists and describes the syntax for the URLs you can formulate for easy access to your own or another user's Profile.

Table A-2 User Interface URLs to a User Profile

Target Pretty URL Syntax

My Profile or User Profile page in the context of the Home space

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/profile/userName

My Profile or User Profile page within the context of the specified space

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/spaceName/profile/userName

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/spaceName/profile


A.4 User Interface URLs for Home Space Pages

Table A-3 lists and describes the syntax for the URLs you can formulate for easy access to pages in the Home space.

Table A-3 User Interface URLs to Pages in the Home Space

Target Pretty URL Syntax

Home page of the Home space

http://host:port/webcenter

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/home

Personal page in the Home space

http://host:port/webcenter/spaces/profile/userName/page/escapedPageDisplayName

The variable userName is your user name or the name of the user who owns the page in the Home space. The variable escapedPageDisplayName indicates the use of an escaped version of the page display name. For example, when you create a page with the name My Page, the URL to this page ends with My+Page.

Note: There is a distinction between personal pages, which users create, and business role and system pages, which can be either seeded or created by an application administrator. For the URL formats for business role and system pages, see Section A.2, "User Interface URLs for Business Role Pages and System Pages."


A.5 User Interface URLs for Space Pages

Table A-4 lists and describes the syntax for the URLs you can use to access space pages and space administration pages. Only users assigned a role that includes the permission Administration: Manage All can access space administration pages.

In Table A-4, wherever the variable spaceName is indicated, use the space name that is specified for Space URL on the General page in a space's administration settings (Figure A-1).

Space internal name on Space Settings General

You can also find the appropriate space name next to the Name label in the About Space dialog. For more information, see Section 51.6, "Viewing Information About a Space."
