Oracle WebCenter Portal

With the WebLogic Kubernetes operator (operator), you can deploy your Oracle WebCenter Portal on Kubernetes.

In this release, Oracle WebCenter Portal domain is based on the “domain on a persistent volume” model, where the domain home is located in a persistent volume.

In this release the support for Portlet Managed Server has been added.

The operator has several key features to assist you with deploying and managing the Oracle WebCenter Portal domain in a Kubernetes environment. You can:

  • Create Oracle WebCenter Portal instances in a Kubernetes PV. This PV can reside in an Network File System (NFS) or other Kubernetes volume types.
  • Start servers based on declarative startup parameters and desired states.
  • Expose the Oracle WebCenter Portal services for external access.
  • Scale Oracle WebCenter Portal domain by starting and stopping Managed Servers on demand, or by integrating with a REST API.
  • Publish operator and WebLogic Server logs to Elasticsearch and interact with them in Kibana.
  • Monitor the Oracle WebCenter Portal instance using Prometheus and Grafana.
