Upgrade a portal based on the original version to the new version to take advantage of the latest portal features:
Enhancements to the following portal front-end features:
- SmartDocs API reference documentation
- Theme editor enhancements
- Default portal theme and content enhancements
Audience and visibility controls
Improvements to how developer accounts are managed using the developer identity service
For more information, see Build your integrated portal.
Before you upgrade
Before you upgrade, review the following considerations:
- A copy of your portal is made before the upgrade.
- The new default theme is applied and your custom CSS styles are overwritten. You need to apply your custom CSS styles manually after the upgrade.
- If the developer identity service is enabled, the new and existing portals share the same user store. Changes to the user store will impact both portals. * In order to support responsive menus, top-level menu items that contain child objects will no longer be active links.
Steps to upgrade
To upgrade to the new version of the portal:
- Select Publish > Portals to view the list of portals.
- Click Upgrade.
The Upgrade your portal dialog displays.
- Click Upgrade now.
The portal is upgraded. The name of the new upgraded version defaults to
portalnamev2, where portalname is the portal name converted to all lowercase and with spaces removed.
The Upgrade Status column for the original portal is changed to
Deprecated to indicate that the portal has been upgraded. Position your cursor over the
Deprecated status for a portal to view the name of its upgraded version.
