Each year at about this time I try to post the download stats for the Liferay Faces project. I am pleased to report that downloads for the Liferay Faces project hit another all time high back in September of 2020, and held fairly steady until January of this year (2021). Downloads seem to take a dip after the holidays, so perhaps that's why we saw a drop-off in February. Since then,...

Introduction Recently I asked some of my teammates for ideas about what to blog about next. Most of the time I take my inspiration from different clients I work with or questions that come up on the Liferay Community channels, but lately the well has seemed kind of dry. So I went fishing for suggestions. My friend Andrew Betts, who happens to be in the Liferay DXP Cloud (DXPC) team suggested...

If you’ve ever looked at a Liferay workflow implementation and its scripts, you might have seen workflowContext being referenced in the scripts that are executed in the individual tasks and states. I’ve recently had my first scripting contact with Workflow, and wanted to look at this context, and what it can do for me. Digging a bit, you’ll find out that workflowContext is a Map<String,...

After doing multiple rounds of search over the internet about using IN parameter in Custom SQL in Liferay but without any satisfactory results, I assumed probably this could never be achieved in Liferay. However a few days back when I was looking at the code I thought about a tweak that could be applied if we have a use case that pertains to the mentioned scenario. I applied the same and lo! It...

One of the most common needs that we face in Liferay Portal / DXP installations is the monitoring, as well as the alert system that alerts us if something does not work as it should (or as expected) Whether it is a web service managed in the cloud, a virtual machine, or a Kubernetes cluster, we need to monitor the entire...

When we think about having different authentication types we commonly think about one fluid and intuitive screen to guide the user through this process. And why is that? It’s probably because logging in is a mean to an end, as a user is often trying to pass this step to achieve a broader goal. With this in mind, it is very important to make logging in smoothly and easily.A logging in process...

IntroductionAs many folks know, I'm known for telling people not to look inside the Liferay database itself. It's not always clear what is what in the DB and Liferay has a lot of code around retrieving and updating data that you likely will not get completely right if you were to update the DB directly.I typically end with "Always, always use the Liferay API for your data needs..."And, if...

So some time ago I wrote the Cluster Details marketplace plugin. Basically you drop this guy into all of your Liferay clusters and you get a nifty little control panel that tells you details about the cluster, all of the nodes which have joined the cluster and it identifies who the leader of the cluster is at the moment:Not super complicated, but it is a handy little tool to identify details...

IntroductionHistorically developers have always wanted to be able to control site creation.It's not that Liferay admins are untrusted or anything like that. It is really more the case where setting up a new site can get complicated and the steps to create the site could be quite long. A site may have initial documents, web contents (with structures and templates), pages to create and populate...

IntroductionLiferay has, for a long time, supported RBAC, the role-based access control. It is, of course, backed by the database so (inheritance aside for the moment) a user will be assigned a list of roles that is mostly fixed or unchanging. To change these role assignments, typically an admin is going to log into Liferay and, using the control panel, add or remove roles as necessary.This...
