Quick Portlet Configuration

The PortletBridge portlet should run without any specific configuration. All you need to do is deploy it into your portal and then edit the preferences. It is recommended that you remove the edit mode in a live deployment. Please note, you will have to either map the "portletbridge" role to an appropriate local role (for Liferay, the liferay.xml descriptor maps it to "Administrator") or set up a "portletbridge" role (for JBoss 2.0).
