V5.5 Portal to V7 Portal Conversion
We recently converted our application from V5.5 to V7, but because of time constraint continued to use 5.5 Portal. Now we are planning to use V7 Portal. The challenge we face is in 5.5 there were lot of options provided to users like reports, utilities to update tables etc on the portals using gadgets which is a HTML code that triggers activity which calls List view for reports or harness for Case updates etc.
For our V7 conversion, Reports can be created using report definition. how will the utilities be converted? In short how are gadgets converted in V7 portal? Whats the best approach?
Attaching some screens for reference from V5.5 portal and gadget.
Most of the out of the box gadgets that we used to work with in V 5 ( e.g : getReportsByName or AssignmentMonitoringReports ) are all now available in OOTB way in form of short cuts . So you need to open the pyCaseManager portal and see how the report tabs are configured and check how many of them can be reused for your application.
If you have done any customization ( customized gadget ) then i dont think we have any way to automatically convert them . It is better to redesign them so that your end user can enjoy the latest features of UI .
