Part III


Part III contains the following chapters:

This section contains instructions for adding administrative users to your portal application and testing the functionality you created in the Development phase. This Staging environment simulates a Production environment. Consider setting up a common development environment for the Development phase and the Staging phase. You might move iteratively between these two phases, developing and then testing what you created in the Administration Console.Use the Staging phase to test the connection to the user stores that you will use in the Production phase. The Staging phase is also a good place to verify that delegated administration and visitor entitlement that you set up are working. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide for Oracle WebLogic Portal for instructions on setting up delegated administration and visitor entitlement. You can also review your personalization logic (see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Interaction Management Guide for Oracle WebLogic Portal) and content management in this phase (see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Content Management SPI Development Guide for Oracle WebLogic Portal).When you move to a Production environment in the Production phase, your users and groups from the Staging phase are not automatically moved there. WLP propagation tools do not move user and group data because of the hashed passwords in the WebLogic Server domain. Hashed passwords provide security to a system's user so that others cannot use the password to log into other sites the user frequents. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware Production Operations Guide for Oracle WebLogic Portal for more information on deployment and propagation.

For a detailed description of the Staging phase of the portal life cycle, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Overview for Oracle WebLogic Portal.
