Building a portal on new LP5.1

Submitted by zy001 on Fri, 10/11/2013 - 10:06

Hi guys,
Today, I am starting this block to record and share my journey of building and customising a new LP5.1 platform with all of you.

The goal:
To build a new dev LP5.1 with highly customised web interface, automated user provisioning process with external AD/LDAP/IM application, and highly independent service oriented portal framework to support portlet channels (based on current own framework and uPortal / JSP modle 2 channels).

BEIS Account Priovisioning to Active Directory

Submitted by shardak on Wed, 06/13/2012 - 11:37

We are in the process of setting up Outbound Account Provisioning to Active Directory using BEIS with Banner being the authoritative source. We could successfully provision everything but password. We are not able to sync GODTPAC pin as AD user password. Has any one could successfully implement account provisioning to AD? I would appreciate any light on this.

Thank you in advance!


Remove one Icon

Submitted by phillies40 on Fri, 11/11/2011 - 11:07

Hi all

We want to remove an additional icon in our luminis (We have Email and GMail icons, we want to remove GMail for Groupwise after upgrading to Google mail) but after changing the following files:

$CP_ROOT/webapps/luminis/WEB-INF/uPortal/org/jasig/portal/layout/tab-column/nested-tables/nested-tables.xsl (comment out Email part)
$CP_ROOT/webapps/luminis/WEB-INF/uPortal/org/jasig/portal/channels/cpicons/channel.xsl (same as above)

we got the following errors:

System Error

Can't service request to /render.userLayoutRootNode.uP

Password change?

Submitted by phillies40 on Wed, 03/23/2011 - 14:38

Hi all

A student tries to change password by clicking on "my account" link, even he/she follows the rules (from Abcd1234 to Abcd4321):
Password Requirements
• The password length must be 8 or greater.
• The password length must be 20 or less.
• The password must contain a letter.
• The password must contain a digit.

luminis keeps showing "The password change failed for an unspecified reason."

Why is that? We use EAS and Novell NDS to Authenticate.

Any idea or suggestion is welcome!


Fix for HTTP / HTTPS Mixed Content warnings

Submitted by diamondsea on Wed, 02/02/2011 - 02:31

After getting tired of fighting with the annoying IE Mixed Content security warnings on Luminis and other sites when trying to include off-site content (photos of the day, xKCD comics, LOLCats, you know, important stuff students like), I decided to just fix the problem once and for all and created FixSSL.

For any URL that I need to include HTTP content on my HTTPS pages, I can now just add to the beginning of it, so I can now use and it will render the page as an SSL resource and no warning message appears.
