Advanced Defaults in Portlets in 7.5

Hi,

Does any one know the concept of Advanced Defaults in Portlets in PPM 7.5. It shows drop downs with the values ENTITY_INFO, USER_INFO, and NONE.

Really appreciate if you could take the example of Resource Pool List portlet to explain the concept.

Many thanks in advance.

Advanced Defaults is what allows a portlet to be passed values like the PROJECT_ID automatically from the Project Overview page. This allows the portlet to filter for a specific project without user intervention when you place it on that project's Overview page.

How about an example for a custom Request List portlet instead...

Re: Advanced Defaults in Portlets in 7.5

Hi,

It is helpful for a single project. We have a requirement to publish a portlet into the project summary page of individual project based on project ID using the project type settings. When we are following the process mentioned here using the enity_info for an individual project's project setting then it is working fine but when we are setting it from project type and open another project then it is not working and showing data of a wrong project.

If you see the attached picture you will see that the portlet 'Test Project ID' is showing information for request id 48045 even in the summary page of different a project named 'A++ Network'.

Is there anyway to resolve this issue? Or is there a token for project id which can be used to show project related data through a portlet in the project summary page

Thanks,
Sumanta
