Wiring a Principal Attribute to a Portlet Property
Users and groups have a set of Principal Attributes that you can wire to a portlet. For example, suppose a portlet uses a postal code to display certain information when a user views a page. If the postal code is provided by wiring from a Principal Attribute Provider, when the postal code attribute is modified within a directory service, the portlet uses the modified attribute value.

1. As system administrator, navigate to and open the page containing the portlet you want to wire.
2. In the page title bar, click Tools > Edit Page to switch to page editing mode.
3. If the title bar of the portlet is hidden, select the View As Expert check box so that you can see the title bar.
