14.2 Configuring the Resource Request Portlet

Follow these steps to configure the Resource Request portlet:

Table 14-1 Resource Request Configuration Steps





Define the anonymous user for your system.

Are you using the LDAP guest, or a special user defined in the Identity Vault? What privileges will this user need in order to execute the workflow? Does the workflow have the correct property attributes set?

For more information about the anonymous user, see Section 1.0, Introduction to the User Application.


Specify the resource request to be executed from this portlet.

For more information, see Section 14.2.1, Setting Preferences.


Create a new page to contain the resource request. The security on this page should allow guest or anonymous access.

For more information, see Section 6.3, Creating and Maintaining Shared Pages.

After you create the new shared page, make sure that you specify the Guest Category and deselect the page’s View permission Set to Admin only.


Test the resource request as the anonymous user.

Verify that the workflow completes as expected.

HINT:When you create the workflows to use with the Resource Request portlet and you define the To token in the e-mail notification as _default_, the addressee expression must be an IDVault expression.
