Creating an RSS ChannelLocate this document in the navigation structure


You create an RSS channel to display web feeds in an enterprise feed. The RSS channel supports the RSS and Atom web feed formats.

The RSS channel is designed to support public, unauthenticated feeds. We do not recommend using the RSS channel for personal feeds.


The following RSS and Atom versions are supported:

  • RSS 0.90, RSS 0.91 Netscape, RSS 0.91 Userland, RSS 0.92, RSS 0.93, RSS 0.94, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0

  • Atom 0.3, Atom 1.0


If you configure your AS Java to use a proxy server for HTTP or HTTPS requests (HTTP/S), all RSS feed requests pass through the proxy server.
