2614837 - Modifying Read only properties in Enterprise Portal


You are trying to modify the read only properties of the PCD Objects (Iview, Role, Page etc) in Enterprise Portal. You are not able to do so from Portal Content Directory as those properties are not in Editable mode.

On doing from the PCD Inspector you are getting a Portal Runtime Error and below logs are seen in /nwa :

java.lang.IllegalStateException: try to modify an attribute in read-only modus
at com.sapportals.portal.pcd.pl.PlAttribute.assertNotReadOnly(PlAttribute.java:425)

at com.sap.portal.pcd.admintools.propeditor.pages.EditAttrPage.dispatchPageRequest(EditAttrPage.java:1198)

Some of the Read only properties in PCD are :

- "changedBy"
- "Created By"
- "Person Responsible"
