This article describes how to configure and manage the InfoBurst Portal. InfoBurst Portal is located under Settings.

Portal Storage Location

Portal content is stored on disk. Enter a folder path and select Set Root Folder to override the default storage location. Size on disk refers to total size of portal content.

The following message is displayed if no content has been delivered to the portal:

Portal has not been used yet. It is recommended that you choose a suitable storage location that can hold the reports and their versions to be displayed in the Portal.

The message is informational, suggesting you select a suitable portal storage location prior to populating the portal.

Change Portal Storage Location

The Portal Storage Location cannot be changed via the user interface after content has been delivered to the portal. The storage location can be changed via command line. All content stored in the current location will be automatically migrated to the new location when the location is updated. The storage location should only be changed when no bursts are actively delivering content to the portal.

This process requires a restart of the server hosting InfoBurst. We recommend executing this process during a time when a server restart is feasible.

  • Open a command prompt (Run as administrator)
  • Change directory to the application root folder (default = C:\Program Files (x86)\InfoSol\InfoBurstPlatform)
  • Enter ibportal
  • Enter 02 (change portal file storage)
  • Enter new storage path at prompt New Storage Folder ?
  • Restart the InfoBurstPlatform service

Root Folders

A folder created under PortalRoot is called a root folder. One or more root folders must be created before content can be delivered to the portal. A Burst delivery cannot create a root folder.

Create Root Folder

  • Select PortalRoot
  • Select Create Portal Folder
  • Enter a folder name
  • Select Add Folder


A folder created under a root folder is called a sub-folder. Sub-folders can be created via the InfoBurst Portal management user interface or via Burst delivery.

Create Sub Folder

  • Select root folder or sub-folder
  • Select Create Portal Folder
  • Enter a folder name
  • Select Add Folder

Folder Permissions

To set permissions on a portal folder:

  • Select the folder
  • Select the green plus button
  • Select a user group

The Report Consumer role is recommended for users accessing the portal. Non-Administrator InfoBurst users delivering to a portal folder must first be granted access to the folder.

Folder Renaming

Renaming a portal folder is not permitted due to potential impact on Burst deliveries that reference the folder.
