Dragging and Dropping portlets

SAML 2 Setup Notes

Just a quick blog, likely one that I would want to add to over time... Cluster Notes When setting up a Liferay cluster for SAML, before enabling you should connect to each node and, in the SAML Config control panel, create the certificate. Do this on all nodes before enabling SAML in the cluster. If you don't, some nodes will work but others will generate NullPointerExceptions ...

Announcing the new Community Blogs and Forums
