PeopleTools 8.54 and 8.55 offer great capabilities for Fluid page development and it is very interesting to see fluid pages scale in accordance with the form factor. We do have simulators/emulators to get a feel of how the actual page would look like in a device, but it is nowhere close to viewing the pages in an actual device.
And it gets even more difficult, when you have a Demo instance running on VirtualBox, but would like to look at how the fluid page would appear in a Mobile device.
Without further ado, provided below are the steps to view PIA/Home page on different devices. But, before you get to the device configuration, ensure the following:
- All devices that you intend to use to access PIA must be on the same Wi-Fi network
- Login to your VirtualBox server and type ifconfig – note down the value against inet addr field – in this case, it is 192.168.0.8
- Send your PIA URL to your mail – http://hcm92.ps.com:8000/psp/ps/?&cmd=login – and access it from your devices
