After log-in to Oracle Portal:
- click on the link ‘Navigator’
- in the list of ‘page groups’ find the name-group you created and click on ‘edit page root’
(this will allow you to edit the main page of the portal)
- clicking on the will let you select from the default/custom portlets available to add to the page area
Depending on the portlet, you may need to customise it at design time or at run-time (if user has privilages). An example of such portlet is ‘External Application’, which first needs to be added by a top-level administrator of the Portal
and then users can either add the portlet on pages (for page-designers) or activate it at run-time (end users).
