WebSphere Portal Redeploy Web Module Application
For some unknown reason, the web module application was missing on WebSphere Portal 8. Thus we can’t deploy any new portlet applications. The Manage Web Modules, Manage Applications and Manage Portlets are missing. After spending some time with IBM PMR, the solution was to reinstall the application.
At <install_loc>/PortalServer/bin, run the command below
xmlaccess.bat -in <install_loc>/PortalServer\ap\wp.ap.portletmanager\config\templates\DeployPortlets_cfgfw.xml -url http://localhost:10039/wps/config -user username -password password
That solved the issue and we portlets are available. But the Web Module page still remain empty and can’t manually insert the portlets.
IBM PMR gave the Setup Manage Portlet XML file.
xmlaccess.bat -user wpsadmin -password wpsadmin -url http://localhost:10039/wps/config -in SetupManagePortlet.xml
The Web Module, Applications and Portlets pages are setup with the correct portlet again.
