Enhancement Request - Improve Preference Field/Filter Display Behavior

Not sure if anything's been logged for this enhancement - but would be a nice one to have.

 

Currently, portlet preferences allow the display behavior of filters with the following options:

 

Editable - Allow user to edit
Required and Editable - Require user to enter a value
Non-Editable - Only allow user to view
Hidden - Not visible to user

 

I would propose extending the functionality of the Non-Editable option, by having an override that allows us to make the preference editable by specific users or security groups.

 

For instance... Non-Editable - Except members of Security Group "Administrators".

 

The reason this is problematic is Portlet reuse. 

 

If the Non-Editable preference is set, there's no way to leverage the portlet for custom dashboards if this filter needs to be removed - since it's a global change.  In some cases there might be a need to use a portlet without this restriction. 

 

Currently the only workaround is to create an entirely new copy of the portlet definition, and change the filter preference.

Re: Enhancement Request - Improve Preference Field/Filter Display Behavior

Hi,

 

Just wanted to get an exact "problem statement" for the title of the Enhancement Request. Sounds something like:

"When Defining Preferences in a Portlet Definition, need a Security feature for the Display options instead of having to create new Portlets"

 

And I think the exact page to reference in the Creating Portlets and Modules Guide is Page 58.

 

Could you please confirm both of these?

Mike -

Your problem statement is accurate, and page 58 in the guide is correct.
