2.2.3.8. Initial Webcontent

When a portal is created, this plugin will deploy initial web-contents as the site artifact into the Site Artifact folder of that portal.

To use the plugin in the component configuration, you must use the following target-component:


<target-component>org.exoplatform.services.wcm.portal.artifacts.CreatePortalArtifactsService</target-component>

The configuration is applied mainly in packaging/wcm/webapp/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/conf/wcm-extension/wcm/newsletter-configuration.xml.

Sample configuration:


<external-component-plugins>
    <target-component>org.exoplatform.services.wcm.portal.artifacts.CreatePortalArtifactsService</target-component>
    <component-plugin>
        <name>Initial webcontent artifact for each site</name>
        <set-method>addPlugin</set-method>
