LIFERAY PORTAL EE Portlet List
The Portal Platform
Core attributes of the Liferay platform include a flexible SOA framework and core portal features such as single sign-on, as well as standout
capabilities and attributes including:
Dynamic Drag & Drop
Liferay Portal was the first portal to offer this feature, allowing users to move different elements around in
the portal by simply dragging and dropping them into place.
Flexible Enterprise Integration
Framework
Liferay Portal is a central presentation layer platform that allows users, administrators and developers to
integrate content and services from backend or legacy applications. Liferay supports multiple methods to
integrate, including SOAP, REST, RSS, as well as proprietary API's.
Identity Management
Liferay offers a customizable single sign-on (SSO) that integrates with CAS, LDAP (Active Directory, etc), NTLM,
CA Siteminder, Oracle Access Manager, Novell Identity Manager, OpenSSO, and more. For example, the SAML 2.0
Provider allows Liferay to act as your SSO server to authenticate all applications integrated while the Virtual LDAP
Server easily integrates third party products into Liferay's user repository via the LDAP protocol.
Liferay Portal has been tested to support over 27K simultaneous virtual users as an infrastructure portal and
over 6K simultaneous virtual users in collaboration use cases on a single 8-core application server. It has also
been deployed in large installations with over 2 million active users in the most demanding environments.
High Availability and Scalability
It has also been certified to work seamlessly with data grid products for massive scalable data caches.
Additionally, customers can feel secure in deploying Liferay Portal to cloud-based environments—
many users have deployed the platform to private clouds built on top of VMWare, Xen, and KVM
technologies and to public cloud infrastructures like Amazon EC2.
Portlet Sandboxing
EE ONLY
Liferay Portal allow users to isolate the execution of specific portlets into multiple JVMs to provide
greater resiliency.
Simplified UI Development
Liferay Portal simplifies the development of internal, external, and channel websites—notably those that allow
users to login for personalized services or views and those that require a workflow approval process to update
content and integrate or aggregate multiple existing services. Liferay Portal provides a single presentation
layer for integrating all enterprise systems into a single easy to use interface for end users.
Single-Click Configuration
A fast, responsive interface makes Liferay Portal extremely easy and enjoyable to use for everyone in your
organization. Typically time-consuming tasks such as altering a page layout, adding new applications and
content, and changing look and feel can all be done in a couple of clicks without ever refreshing the page.
Workflow Framework
Liferay Portal allows you to incorporate workflow into any of your own custom portlets by leveraging
Liferay's workflow APIs. This provides a better end user experience; saves your development team a lot
of effort by reusing Liferay's workflow administration tools; and provides seamless integration with all
supported workflow engines.
Rules Engine Integration
EE ONLY
Advanced personalization via Drools allows for "contextual personalization," the specification of content,
functionality, and features based on a user's location, activities, and their other self-defined profile attributes.

LIFERAY PORTAL EE Portlet List
Auditing & Performance
Monitoring EE ONLY
Dynamic Virtual Hosting and
Vanity URL
To help administrators monitor the portal's performance and better optimize resources, Liferay Portal gives
administrators access to key performance statistics (hits/page, avg time/hit, max time per request, and
more) for all portlets and portal pages. Meanwhile, our Portal Auditing feature allows administrators to track
and manage user activity within the portal.t
A single portal can be duplicated over and over again to quickly create hosted websites within one Liferay
deployment. Each clone can have its own unique URL, custom theme, and design. For example, a single
deployment could host www.companyA.com and www.companyB.com with completely different themes,
pages, and applications. Additionally, all pages within a portal can be easily given a vanity URL
(i.e., you can easily setup new pages and define their URL as <www.companyA.com/documents or
www.companyA.com/training>)
User Personalization
Depending on what an administrator allows, users can personalize portal pages by adding, removing,
positioning content or portlet attributes (e.g., zip code for weather portlet). These pages can be made
public (published as a website with a unique friendly URL) or kept private.
Role Based Content Delivery
Portals allow multiple user types to access a single URL and access a unique page view depending on the
users role, group, organization or personal preferences. Administrator controlled and user customized,
Liferay Portal provides a central platform for determining enterprise content policy, including who can edit
and publish content, files, communities, files and applications.
Multi-language Support
International or multi-lingual organizations get out of the box support for 40+ languages. Users can toggle
between different language settings with just one click. You can also easily add other languages.
Search & Tagging
Tag web content, documents, message board threads and more to dynamically share important or
interesting content with other portal users.
Users can then search for relevant information through faceted search, allowing one to filter results by specific
criteria within specific portlets, communities, the entire portal and even external integrated applications.
Administrators can customize, edit, add, and change user attributes (name, company, date, or any other
information that needs to be tracked or logged by your system) directly from Liferay, without needing to
modify their database.
Custom Fields
This support extends to Pages, Web Content, Blogs Entries, Documents and its folders, images and its
folders, bookmarks and its folders, forum messages, calendar events and wiki pages. Liferay also offers a
framework so that developers can leverage this functionality in their custom portlets to support custom
fields for their own entities.
Mobile Device Rules
Feature and framework for defining different portal behavior based on device type with a built-in set of
device definitions for most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc) and an optional device detection
database for purchase.
Responsive Design
Liferay Portal's CSS framework is responsively designed to work with browsers on all platforms from mobile
to tablet to desktop.

LIFERAY PORTAL EE Portlet List
Community Features
Liferay users can be intuitively grouped into a hierarchy of "organizations" or cross-organizational "user groups," providing flexibility and ease of
administration. For example, members of different geographies such as Americas and EMEA can be grouped into organizations, whereas project
based or departmental teams such as a "website redesign" that cross disciplines can be created as user groups.
Liferay provides support for "sites" where both organizations and user groups can be added to a separate web property with its own set of pages,
content management system, shared calendar, and authorizations. A user can belong to multiple sites and easily navigate between them.
Portlets and Plugins

can easily navigate between sites.
Site Pages
Page settings allow site administrators to change the portal look and feel with one click, manage portal
pages, insert JavaScript and meta-data, set friendly URLs, and more.
One-click Site Creation
One-Click page and site creation is possible: web structures and templates allow common web layouts
to be predefined and saved for future web pages. With One-Click Page Creation, users can create a new
page and immediately begin adding content to the page layout, allowing web pages to be setup within
minutes without any developer support required. Users can also create Sites with sets of predefined
pages configured to their needs. These site templates can be dynamic, allowing all changes to the parent
template to be inherited by associated children sites.
Contextual
Personalization
What’s more, advanced personalization via Drools allows for "contextual personalization", which is the
specification of content, functionality, and features based on a user's location, activities, and their other profile
attributes defined by the community members.

Other Notable Attributes
Dynamic, extensible search built-in with SEO. Search capability is extensible using open search,
or swapping in a different search engine like Solr. Liferay Portal EE offers faceted and multi-tier search:
• Faceted Search - Liferay provides users an efficient way to instantly refine search results by drilling down with
specific constraints that match the user's search criteria. For example, a retail site built on Liferay would allow
you to search for merchandise by inputting various combinations of criteria, such as color, size and price.
Search
• Multi-Tier Search - A portal with web content, documents, images, wikis, blogs, and other user created
content becomes a massive repository of data. Search becomes a vital aspect for users of the system
since it is essential that users can find the content they need when they want it.
Liferay's search allows users to search across all assets within the portal to which they currently have access,
while also restricting them from assets in which they do not. This multi-tier search capability ensures that
users have access to only open content or content available to them based on their roles and membership
in various communities.
Dynamic Tagging
Staging and
Easy Website Planning
Live Page Editing and Scheduling
Search can be used to look inside content published within the portal, but occasionally it is not enough to
help users find their desired content. Dynamic Tagging is available in Liferay, allowing content creators to
define keywords associated with their content. Users can add keyword tags to web content, documents,
message boards, and to more simplifying search and enabling powerful features like the Asset Publisher.
Liferay allows multiple teams to work on several variations of a site simultaneously and schedule
publication dates for each. For example, three different teams can work on Halloween, Thanksgiving,
and Christmas and schedule their variation to publish at different times.
Enhanced staging includes automatic versioning with history, undo support at the site and page level, and
preview based on scheduled publications.
Pages from a live site can be edited and previewed without affecting what is seen on the public site,
then scheduled for future publishing all within the online editor. Users can use this same method to edit
individual pages, entire communities, or full portals. Liferay also allows users to "roll-back" to previous
versions of pages, sites, or communities.
With its ability to easily create web content, blogs, wikis and to share documents, Liferay Portal allows a
website to become a valuable repository of information. While Liferay's internal search can be used to find
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
data within the portal, Liferay also optimizes updates to the site map information and makes new pages
instantaneously searchable by external search engines.
User Defined Content Categories
Administrators can create their own custom metadata sets and document types into language familiar
to users. For example, financial reports, surveillance videos, and so on can be defined in a way that makes
sense for the business functions of the content (e.g., author, reporting period, etc.).
