    Portlet configuration page use some parameters for liferay portlet. For example I would like to select what page should a controller display when viewing it.

    Below steps help you to create configuration page in liferay :

    Step 1: Create controller for config

    import com.liferay.portal.kernel.portlet.ConfigurationAction;
    import javax.portlet.*;
    
    public class SandboxPortletConfig implements ConfigurationAction {
    @Override
    public void processAction(PortletConfig portletConfig, 
        ActionRequest actionRequest, ActionResponse actionResponse) 
            throws Exception {
    
        }
    
    @Override
    public String render(PortletConfig portletConfig, RenderRequest renderRequest, 
        RenderResponse renderResponse) throws Exception {
        return "html/sandboxPortlet/config.jsp";
        }
    }
    

    Step 2: JSP page for the view part:

    <%@ page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
    <%@ include file="../init.jsp"%>
    
    <form>
        Select:
        <select>
            <option>1</option>
            <option>2</option>
            <option>3</option>
        </select>
    </form>
    

    Step 3: set up portlet.xml to include:

    <portlet>
        <portlet-name>sandboxPortlet</portlet-name>
        <display-name>Sandbox Portlet</display-name>
        <portlet-class>org.springframework.web.portlet.DispatcherPortlet</portlet-class>
        <init-param>
            <name>contextConfigLocation</name>
            <value>/WEB-INF/spring/sandbox-portlet-context.xml</value>
        </init-param>
        <init-param>
            <name>config-jsp</name>
            <value>/WEB-INF/html/sandboxPortlet/config.jsp</value>
        </init-param>
        <supports>
            <mime-type>text/html</mime-type>
            <portlet-mode>view</portlet-mode>
            <portlet-mode>edit</portlet-mode>
        </supports>
        <portlet-info>
            <title>Sandbox Portlet</title>
            <short-title>Sandbox</short-title>
            <keywords>sandbox test testing</keywords>
        </portlet-info>
    </portlet>
    

    Step4: liferay-portlet.xml to be like:

    <portlet>
        <portlet-name>sandboxPortlet</portlet-name>
        <instanceable>false</instanceable>
        <configuration-action-class>path.to.the.portlet.sandboxPortlet.SandboxPortletConfig</configuration-action-class>
    </portlet>
