Persist Global Dashlet Properties

Question asked by pjaromin on Sep 19, 2012
I'm interested in modifying the NoticeDashlet to display the same notice for ALL users.

I can see that the framework saves the properties (title, text) to the repo under Sites -> surf-config -> components -> <scope>.<region-id>.<source-id>.xml. However because the source-id is different for each user, the content on the main user dashboard - /user/<userid>/dashboard is different.

Is there a way to populate the properties of this dashlet using the default mechanism but pulling from the same document for all users? I haven't traced down the way the "args.XXX" properties get populated (perhaps this is in spring-surf code?) to work out for myself how I can do this.
