Is it possibility to run a Portal Service from an external application.

Hello Developers

Our SAP system periodically requires users to update their password. This is handled in an external Web application.

Could we write a Portal service that will be initiated from the web appliction to update the User Mapping password field for a particular system in the Portal? I'm also assuming that the User Mapping fields for an individual user can be updated by this Portal service using the SET property in the Hash Map.

If it is possible to update the field from a Portal service, will it also require this request to first abtain a logon to the portal?

Thank you

    You can write Portal Service first and then you can easily convert it into webservice using NWDS.

    You can use this webservice easily from external applications.

    If you want to know how to convert Portal service to Webservice let me know.

      Piyush,

      I was working on a different path for some time but now have to revisit this. I converted my portal service to a web service but I'm unable to call it from my external web application. The Send request returns "404 Not Found".

      My Post statement has the location:

      "http://<portalserver>:50000/irj/Applications/UpdateUserMapping/services/ChangeUMPassword"

      Do you have any idea of what can be missing?

      Thank you
