Table of Contents
The Web Integrations Explorer is primarily a tool for:
- building and managing custom PIMs
- enhance existing PIMs with new channel types and handlers
However, it also provides a convenient way to browse the sample content provided with installed PIMs.
The Explorer shows a list of Authentication handlers, a list of installed Packages (PIMs) including system provided packages, and the virtual directory in general (also accessible via Advanced -> Explore System).
For more information on enhancing or building PIMs refer to the enPortal Solutions & Customization documentation.
Exploring Sample Content #
To explore sample content included with installed PIMs first make sure the “sample” target has been configured for the specific PIM on the Applications & Licenses page.
Then browse to Packages -> [pim_name] -> sample. Under this folder will be a list of example channels that can be created using this PIM.
This is a quick way to verify a PIM is installed correctly and able to communicate with an external web application. It’s also a good way to explore the capabilities of the PIM.
