Assiging UniqueName to Skin

I had this business requirement in which i had to assign a unique name to my skin. In order to do that i followed these steps

  1. First copy the skin folder say Test Folder into your wp_profile\installedApps\sunpa\wps.ear\wps.war\skins\html folder.

  2. Next define the Skin using Themes and Skins Admin portlet

  3. Export full portal and find out the Skin element for test, you will notice that portal has assigned a objectid to skin. Copy that element in separate file and add uniqueName attribute to it and import it into portal using xmlaccess

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <request xmlns:xsi="" build="wp6103_201_01" type="update" version="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="PortalConfig_6.1.0.2.xsd">
    <portal action="locate">
    <skin action="update" active="true" default="false" domain="rel" objectid="K_8000CB1A08N4C0IKUIQTT60000" resourceroot="Test" type="default" uniquename="">
    <localedata locale="en">
