User portals support users of applications as they create, update, and resolve work items; and managers as they monitor work activity and help workers resolve issues. User portals may be customized to reflect the terminology, layout, and needs appropriate to each user community.
The recommended portal type is the composite portal, introduced in Version 5.5. The Pega 7 Platform also supports traditional portals (also called classic or fixed portals), introduced in Version 5.1. Traditional portals are not available for new application development.
Follow these links to learn about these two portal types:
If your application is appropriately designed and tested, your application users can use browsers other than Internet Explorer. See Cross-browser support for user portals.
Similarly, if your requirements include making the forms and pages of your application accessible, Pega 7 Platform includes facilities that can aid in achieving this goal. See Understanding accessibility.
Pega 7 Platform composite applications are Pega 7 Platform applications created with the Pega Web Mashup. You can embed a Pega 7 Platform composite application as a gadget in a web page of a company intranet, extranet, or web site, and users can access it there rather than through a user portal.
