2384502 - Configure EP Portlet on PM Forms when instance is using the new People Profile (PP3) UI version

Symptom

After upgrading to People Profile 3 (PP3) UI version, portlet links no longer work from PM Forms.

Is it possible to have a direct link from the Performance Management form directly to the portlet in Employee Profile if instance is already using the new People Profile (PP3) version?

In V12 each portlet needs both dashboardId and portletId. After migrating to PP3, each portlet will get a unique blockId instead for PM form link.

 

Environment

  • Performance Management V11
  • Performance Management V12
  • Performance Management V12a
  • Employee Profile
  • Bizx - Performance Management

 

Reproducing the Issue

Instance was  upgraded from V12 to PP3, and portlets on PM templates were still configured based on link format to the portlet: [[PORTLETLINK|scorecard_id|portlet_id|label]]

Cause

In V12 each portlet need both dashboardId and portletId. After migrating to PP3, each portlet will get a unique blockId instead for PM form link.

This is a new feature after the b1608 release.

Resolution

Follow the instructions below:

To know the blockid and blockType, go to Admin Center -> Configure People Profile -> Add section & block. get the Block Id & Block Type.

Once you have the information, you can now configure it on the template via Admin Center->Manage Templates->Performance Review->Click PM Template->Edit fields and sections->Introduction. For PP3, change the PORTLETLINK to be BLOCKLINK, and configure PM template with Block Type, Block Id, and link on PM form. ( Code should be: [[BLOCKLINK|blockid|blockType|dispalyname]]  ).

If portlet is not available on the user's profile page for user, it is regarded as unauthorized portlet in PM form.
