Portal External URL

To add an external URL into your portal registry:

  1. Navigate to PeopleTools > Portal > Structure and Content
  2. Add a New Content Reference
  3. Specify the unique content reference name
  4. Specify the sequence number to get it in the right order in the portal (if required)
  5. Check the No Template check box if you do not want a portal wrapper (header and left-nav) around the link.
  6. Change the URL type to Non-PeopleSoft URL
  7. Specify the URL in the Portal URL

If you want the link to open in a new window add a content reference attribute with:

  • Name = NAVNEWWIN
  • Label = New Window (Can be what you like)
  • Attribute Value = true

Make sure you add the appropriate permission lists in the security tab so your users can see it. If you experience caching issues, issue the purge servlet directive. See the second half of this article for more information about that.

Here's an example of how you would add a link to the PeopleSoft Wiki that displays in a new window without the portal wrapper:
