Portal Setup Manager portlet

Data Modeling & Business Logic
The Portlet allows you to setup your portal instance with standard objects as sites, users, groups, roles or custom attributes. Additionally to data creation it allows you to create relationships between these objects and also deletes these data using batch job. Filling a simple XML file solves the whole management of this data; it doesn’t require any knowledge of a particular SQL dialect used in your database system. Each time the file is uploaded the portlet will execute XML configuration.

This plugin allows you to execute following operations.
1) Creation of data:
• Users
• Roles
• Custom fields
• Pages

2) Creation of data relationships:
• User - Roles
• Community - Pages - Roles
• Custom field - Roles

3) Deletion of data:
• Users
• Roles
• Communities
• Custom fields
• Pages

These operations are useful for setting up a new portal instance or for a need of batch data management, i.e. for testing purposes.

• XSD scheme that allows you to configure all-important Liferay Portal data
• Liferay Portlet that uses configuration to setup database according to uploaded XML configuration

Portal Setup Manager Hook includes same logic however it allows you to execute XML configuration and create all necessary artifacts at the time of a portal start up. You don't need Portal Setup Manager Hook to run this portlet and those two applications don't conflict with each other.
