Is it possible to load a Java Servlet plugin in the Customer Portal?

Currently to access a plugin I created, I have to navigate to "", but from a Service Desk customer account that page is inaccessible. is there a way to move the servlet into the Service Desk environment?

Thanks for any help you can provide

This widget could not be displayed.

For the curious since the documentation for plugins is horribly outdated and patchy:

To let a customer user see a servlet plugin, add the following to atlassian-plugin.xml

<customercontext key="keyName" path="/plugins/servlet/myServletUrlPatternHere">
<uri regex=".*"/>


Hopefully that saves someone else the trouble of figuring it out.

Thanks for sharing Jackson. The information is useful :)

Did you manage to get the decorator to render the header and footer like the Customer Portal?

You're welcome :)

Never found out quite how to implement that, if you find out I'd be interested to know myself.
