The web content administrator

A web content administrator is responsible for configuring the web content servers within a WebSphere® Portal system.

Web content authoring environments

In a web content authoring environment, a web content administrator performs the following tasks:
Create new pages
An administrator might need to create new pages to display additional authoring portlets used by different users, or for displaying web content viewer portlets to preview sites within.
Configure an authoring portlet
Each authoring portlet in an authoring environment needs to be configured to ensure that it has been configured correctly for the users using each authoring portlet.
Configure a web content viewer portlet
Each web content viewer portlet in an authoring environment needs to be configured to display the content that is being previewed.
Create web content libraries
The web content administrator creates a set of web content libraries based on the recommendations of the web content architect.
Clone a web content repository
Before enabling syndication, a web content administrator, with a database administrator, clones a web content repository from the authoring environment to other environments.
Manage syndication
Syndication relationships are normally created on subscriber servers. As you typically syndicate only out from an authoring environment to other environments, you would not normally create a syndication relationship from an authoring environment, but a web content administrator might need to manage syndication settings and configurations from time to time.
Create and manage feed configurations and jobs
Sometimes web content is stored and maintained in external systems. You use the Web Content Integrator to consume content from external systems using feeds.
Tune an authoring environment configuration settings
Authoring environment configuration settings can be tuned for specific features.

Web content delivery environments

In a web content delivery environment, a web content administrator performs the following tasks:
Create new pages
An administrator might need to create new pages when displaying content using web content viewer portlets.
Configure a web content viewer portlet
Each web content viewer portlet in a delivery environment needs to be configured to display the correct content.
Manage syndication
A web content administrator creates syndication relationships to the delivery environment from the web content staging and authoring environments.
Tune a delivery environment configuration settings
Delivery environment configuration settings can be tuned for specific features.

In a UAT environment:

A user acceptance testing environment is set up like authoring and delivery environments depending on the type of UAT being performed. The tasks required to set up the UAT environment are the same as those for the authoring and delivery environments.
