Profiles define the values to supply to profiled builder call inputs based on the segment (J2EE Role, or LDAP Group, for example) to which the user belongs.
When you create a profile, you can make one or more associations with a profile. You can change how the WebSphere® Portlet Factory servlet associates a profile with a request by using one of the alternate profile selection handlers (either an LDAP group-based or file-based determination). You can also create your own profile selection handler to implement some other way of associating a request with a profile.
You create profiles either in the Manage Profiles
tab of the profile manager or when you profile a builder call input. Once you create a profile, you can specify values for the entries contained in the profile set to which the profile belongs.
