I am using Erdas Aapollo 16.5 and Geospatial Portal for viewing the data.
In some Portal templates there is Search for data (metadata) side panel (in full.aspx for example).
This searh works with CSW services registered in Portal Geoworkspace.
I am trying to use this functionality with Apollo CSW. I have succsefuly register CSW service with link from apollo catalog http://myservername:80/erdas-apollo/catalog/csw but any search is with no results.
I have updated CSW meta data in Data Manager for all datasets.

I think you need the make the CSW public in APOLLO by editing: C:\Program Files\Hexagon\ERDAS APOLLO\webapps\erdas-apollo\WEB-INF\config\security-config.xml
You need to use "IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY" for CSW and WRS, see: http://community.hexagongeospatial.com/t5/Support-ERDAS-APOLLO/Apollo-CSW-Authentication/m-p/21961/h...
Then, the search will work in the Portal only with the catalog items that have a public security.
I have an issue when retrieving the metadata, maybe you will have the same. I need to investigate.

Thanks a lot Flo.
It is the same for me with retrieving the metadata.
One more question, is it possible to make data with security visible in metadata search.

Concerning the error when retrieving the metadata, it would be better if you submit a submit a support ticket so the team could investigate.
I don't think the Portal has the possibility to use a secured CSW, it doesn't seem to be possible to set credentials but I am not 100% sure.

I think you will find Geospatial Portal supports an older version of CSW than the Apollo (ISO) CSW version resulting in Geospatial Portal search on an Apollo CSW does not work.
