How To - OWSM 10.1.3 : Add help page for custom steps

You can add a help page for custom policy step in Oracle Web Services Manager (OWSM) by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to the OC4J_HOME/owsm/lib/app/ccore/help/steps directory

  2. Create the html help page for the custom page here and name it with the step name replacing any spaces with underscore. For example, if the step name is “My Custom Step” then name the help page as My_Custom_Step.html

You can optionally create help pages in other languages and put them under the respective directories such as es, fr, etc.

  1. Start the OC4J server

  2. On command prompt, go to OC4J_HOME/owsm/bin directory and run the following command

wsmadmin deploy OC4J_ADMIN_PASSWORD control

This will package the control application again with the newly added help page, and redeploy it into the OC4J container.

Login to the OWSM Control. Help for your custom step should be available now.
