  • Display Name

    The display name of the node which contains the added page and must have a length between 3 and 30 characters.

  • Visible

    This checkbox toggles the global visibility of this page.
    If checked the page or the page node appears on on the navigation bar, the page navigation and the site map. If "visible" is checked the visibility depends on the "publication date & time" attribute.
    If unchecked, the page is not shown in the site map or navigation bar.

    Non-visible Pages and Security
    The Visible checkbox should not be used as a security measure, as non-visible pages will still be accessible using a direct URL, such as http://localhost:8080/portal/private/classic/pagename.

  • Page Id

    A string that identifies the page. It is automatically generated when you finish creating the page.

  • Owner type

    If the page Owner type is portal the page is created for a portal. Therefore only users who have edit permissions on the portal level can create this page type.
    The name of the current portal is automatically selected for Owner id ensuring the edit permissions are assigned to users who can edit the current portal.
    If the page Owner type is group the page is created for a group. Therefore only users who have manager permissions for that group can create this page type.

  • Owner Id

    The name of the page owner. When the owner type is set to group, a list of groups will allow you to select one user as the 'owner'.

  • Page Name

    The name of the page. This is a required field and must be unique. Only alphabetical, numerical and underscore characters are allowed to be used for this field and the name must be at least 3 and no more than 30 characters in length.

  • Access Permission

    The content of this tab is identical to the Owner type field in the Page Setting tab. Therefore, all users having access rights for the type selected in the Owner type field will appear in this tab. But users can also change the value of this tab.

  • Edit Permission

    The content of this tab depends on the value of the Owner type field in the Page Setting tab.
