PPM Portlet on Sharepoint

Hi,

Has anyone successfully displayed PPM portlet on sharepoint?

When I try to open PPM portlet, I get the following error:

The portlet server returned an error. It may not be configured correctly. The details of the error message have been added to the SharePoint log file on the SharePoint server. Please contact your SharePoint administrator to correct this problem.

Thanks.

When I discussed this type of integration with a sharepoint admin, he told me the two machines (PPM and SP) need to be "trusted hosts". It is probably a term familiar to a windows/active directory admin.

Hello,

Any luck on connecting PPM Portlet x Sharepoint? Would appreciate if you could share your experience on this matter (considering you made it work :-) )

Re: PPM Portlet on Sharepoint

We did not bring it to an end because the sharepoint consultant did not really like WSRP, like this guy from MS:

However that is a little outdated and it is possible to have WSRP consumers in sharepoint. The tricky part seems to be sharepoint's config. I found info on that here:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/angus_logan/archive/2007/02/09/how-to-configure-wsrp-consumption-in-moss-2007.aspx

The key seems to be a file called TrustedWSRPProducers.config
This was the problem with our setup at least, the PPM hosts were not "trusted".

Today I pull all the content to PPM using the URL portlet for several reasons. Especially because many remote systems don't support WSRP (Lotus Notes, Nagios, our IT support tool...)
