Same Porlet on multiple pages?


IDM UA RBPM module, 4.0.1 Patch C

Can you have the same Portlet (Challenge/Response, in this case) be on
multiple pages without having to copy it?

Or is making a copy the only way to do that (I'm only familiar with IBM
WebSphere Portal which lets you put the same portlet on as many pages as
you want).

The main reason I wish to do this is that I have about a thousand users
who haven't answered their Challenge/Response (due to NAM/IDM
compatibility problems), so the only way I can workaround this is to
have NAM do an Auth class which redirects the user to a page with just
the challenge/response portlet on it.

(If I send them to the Password Management Page, they get the "change
password" as the default option and they get confused and then they call
us wanting to know why they have to change their password again)...

Greetings Kevin,
Yes, you can have the same portlet on many different Shared Pages.
I do not understand why you would need to have the Challenge Response
control on more then one (1) Shared page.

Thanks Steve.

In this case it's because we need to workaround the interoperability
issue with the expired password scenario with NAM and UA.
What happens now is that first-time user logs in, password is
auto-expired by eDir, user has to change the password. However, the
expired password URL given in the docs logs the user out before UA can
send them along to answer their challenge response questions, thus
making the Forgotten Password useless.

So I can have NAM detect if the SASLoginSecret attribute exists, and
then redirect the user (on a subsequent login only) to JUST the
Challenge Response questions.

If I direct them to the page with the Password Management, then the
"change password" page is what's defaulted, and the user gets confused
because they're presented with a UA page that says:
Change password

(on the left-hand side they get the panel to select "Challenge
Response".

If I change the Password Management to default to Challenge REsponse
instead, then we break the "click here to change your password".

Hope that makes sense. (In 3.6.1 we could reference the Challenge
Response .jsp directly or something but this cannot be done in 4.x
anymore).

Now, if you know of a way to direct the user to JUST the Challenge
Reponse bit, that would be great, but when I searched, it seemed you
could not do this in 4.x without creating a page with JUST that portlet
on it and reference the page.
