Disabling managed pages

Disable support for managed pages by running the disable-managed-pages configuration task.

Disabling managed pages has the following effects:
  • By default, each virtual portal has its own specific workspace where content is stored. When you disable managed pages, only a single workspace for the default virtual portal is available. The workspaces of other virtual portals are still there, but you can no longer access them. Any system associations between pages in those virtual portals and their respective Portal Site libraries no longer work.
    Important: To preserve content in the other virtual portals, you must import or syndicate the libraries into the default virtual portal before disabling managed pages.
  • You can still access the Portal Site library for the default virtual portal, but the library is no longer automatically synchronized with the page structure.
  • Pages are no longer managed in IBM® Web Content Manager, with the following implications:
    • No page drafts can be created.
    • No new versions of pages can be created.
    • Pages are no longer syndicated.
    • Access control changes that you perform in the portal interface are no longer applied to the portal page site area.
    • If you delete a page from the portal interface, the corresponding portal page site area is not deleted.
  • If you create a page with either the Basic or Articles page template, the page has no web content association. This missing association can cause errors if you attempt to add content from the Web Content category of the Content tab in the site toolbar. To use the sample web content items when managed pages are disabled, create a web content association on the page before attempting to add content.
  1. Run the disable-managed-pages task from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory.
    Windows
    ConfigEngine.bat disable-managed-pages -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
    AIX® Linux Solaris
    ./ConfigEngine.sh disable-managed-pages -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
    IBM i
    ConfigEngine.sh disable-managed-pages -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password

    After running the disable-managed-pages task for the first time, the property managed.pages is created in the WP WPConfigService configuration service. The value of the property is set to false.

  2. Restart the portal server.
