Hi,

I have a JBoss portal page with 5-6 portlets.
How can I hide certain portlets based on the security constraints of the user?

Or Can I hide portlet based on any other scenario?

Thanks!!

Hi,
Every portlet can be shown or hid based on the user role. You have to define the role at the portlet-instance level.
And assign the roles to the users who need to view the portlet in your portal page.

Learn more about <security-constraint> at portlet & portal object level.

hi ..

i have created a jboss portlet application where i need to show/hide certain portlets based on the user liscence (say the customer enter a liscence key > the application validates the liscence and then enable a portlet which comes with the liscence .) how can i implement the said.
