Foglight 7.1.0 - Web Component Tutorial

Introducing the Web Component Framework The Web Component Framework Configuring Views and Context Queries Functions Bindings Additional Components


This is a JSR168 compliant portlet created for the purpose of allowing remote access to browser interface’s views. So far, this portlet has only been successfully tested on these Portal Servers as shown below:

JBoss® Portal Server 2.6
WebLogic® Portal 10

Deploy and Run

In order to test your Foglight® portlet, you will need to have a portal server available in which you can place the portlet’s war file. JBoss Portal, Apache Jetspeed2, and WebLogic Portal are suitable choices for testing a remote portlet.

Locate the Foglight remote portlet war file:
${Foglight Server Home}/tools/foglight-remote-portlets.war


You need to configure the portlet by setting its host, port, and viewId before attempting to run it.

host: The Management Server host you would like to connect with.
port: The Management Server port you would like to connect with.
viewId: The Web Component Framework fully qualified ID, for example, system:fsmhome.0. There are also predefined view mappings available for use.

SharePoint Web Part with Windows Single Sign-On

Users without a Foglight® account cannot have access to Foglight dashboards appearing in SharePoint® Web pages. Configuring Foglight to support Windows® Single Sign-on, grants Active Directory users access to Foglight views embedded in SharePoint Web pages.

When Windows Single Sign-on is configured, if you log in to a Windows machine and then log in to the browser interface, the Management Server uses your Windows account credentials to authenticate you as a Management Server user.

For complete information about configuring Foglight with Windows Sign-on, see “Configuring Windows Single Sign-On” in the Administration and Configuration Help.

Active Directory® users who need to have access to Foglight dashboards in SharePoint Web pages must have proper permissions granted to their Active Directory user accounts in Foglight. For more information, see “Managing Users and Security” in the Administration and Configuration Help.
