Service Portlet form - Completing the Portlet tab

Updated on August 16, 2022

The rule type Service Portlet is deprecated. Use Pega Web Mashup instead.

Identify the service activity that displays the home page of the portlet and the values used to authenticate the portlet users.

Activity ClassEnter the first key part — Applies To — of the service activity.
Service Activity NameEnter the second key part — Activity Name — of the service activity.
Help Activity NameOptional. Identify the name of an activity (in the same class as the service activity) that can produce and send a ready-to-display HTML page of help information for display in the client portlet.
Authentication Complete these fields unless the portlet is to access this Pega Platform system as an unauthenticated (guest) user.
Application ID Select the application ID data instance ( Data-Admin-AppID class) you created for this portlet. The PRPortletService authentication service uses this value to verify the security token that the portlet sends to identify itself to the Pega Platform.

For information about the PRPortletService and how application IDs are used by portlets, see Pega Community article How portlet services work.
