You can expose profiled inputs in the model by setting the behavior for the profile set that contains them in the model's Portlet Adapter builder call.
The builder call editor for the Portlet Adapter lists any profile sets associated with the model in its Profile Sets
input. For each profile set listed, set the behavior to one of the following:
Do not expose in Portal tools
Prevents any exposure of its name or profile values in the Configure and Edit modes of the portlet. Use this setting when you want the WebSphere® Portlet Factory's profile selection handler to determine the profile to apply to the portlet's underlying model.Show individual profile values in Edit
Allows the user to specify values for each entry in the profile set when in the Edit mode for the portlet. Use this setting to allow the user to set portlet parameters at execution time. For example, a stock-symbol list, zip-code for weather, background color, and so on.Show profile names in Edit
Allows the user to specify a profile to apply to the portlet. Use this setting to allow the user to apply all the values determined by the selected profile to the portlet. For example, a profile set could contain profiles oriented towards the user's region. Using this setting on such a profile set allows the user to determine the regional profile to use, but the developer retains control over the individual values in that profile.Show individual profile values in Configure
Allows the portal administrator to specify values for each entry in the profile set when in the Configure mode for the portlet. Use this setting to allow the portal administrator to set portlet parameters when they add the portlet to a page. These settings apply to all the users of the portal.Show profile names in Configure
Allows the portal administrator to specify a profile to apply to the portlet. Use this setting to allow the portal administrator to apply all the values determined by the selected profile to the portlet. These settings apply to all the users of the portal.
Implementing portlet Configure and Edit modes: wpf7
IBM® WebSphere Portal administrators have the ability to set parameters for a portlet by configuring that portlet.
Overriding the default Configure and Edit display: wpf7
You can alter the display of the Edit and Configure pages that get displayed when the user or administrator clicks on the Edit
icons in the portlet's title bar.
