After installing an SAP NetWeaver Portal, the administrator needs to create some content. This can either come from one of the SAP supplied business packages, or it needs to be built using the portal content administration tools.

I decided to make a portal component to asssist in creation of some simple examples, namely a portal role which uses a portal workset that contains some KM and URL type iViews.

Here are some screen shots

We have a top level menu… 


This shows the options available and says where in the PCD the objects will be created. The folder name is based on the username of the person running the tool.

This shows creating a simple portal role.


If you have installed the Web Page Composer, you can also create a role from a WPC entry point…


We can make an iView that presents a KM folder, asuming KM has been installed…


Or make an iView that accesses a URL…


Now make a workset that contains our generated iViews…


And after assigning the roles, we should see…



The PAR file can be downloaded from here.

The tool can be launched using a URL similar to http://portalhost:port/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/PCDBuilder.Menu as a user with content administrator privileges.

    Nice tool
    This is something I am looking for. But I am expecting more tools like this like logon par customization tool which will allow me to just add logo and add text adjust login fields on the screen etc. Which will be more useful for administrators as they are not programmers..
