The problem that I have is that I want  to display some content.in the header layouts of my portal page.according the usergroup.

This is the following snippet:

    public void invoke(Request request, Response response) throws IOException, ServletException {

        if (productCodes != null) { 
               if(authenticateProducts(request, response, productCodes)) {
                  String locationId = authHelper.obtainAuthorizedLocationId(request, productCodes);
*getUserPreferences(Request request, String locationId)*

     public Map<String, Object> getUserPreferences(Request request, String locationId) {
        Session session = request.getSessionInternal(true);
         Map<String, Object> preferences = (Map<String, Object>)  session.getSession().getAttribute(USER_GROUP_PREFERENCES);
        if (preferences == null || preferences.isEmpty()) {
            preferences = retrieveUserGroupPreferences(locationId);
            session.getSession().setAttribute(USER_GROUP_PREFERENCES, preferences);
        return preferences;

I tried to get the preferences from the map in a portlet as follows:

     Map<String, Object> preferences = (Map<String, Object>) portletSession.getAttribute(USER_GROUP_PREFERENCES,

But I got preferences = null

I  also tried a ServletFitler and I CAN share the HTTPSession with the  PortletSession,  but it seems that the layout is being executed before  the filter (which is very strange to me), so I found that the valve is  executed before anything but now that I can successfully invoke the  valve before the layout.jsp, I cannot access the attribute from the  portletsession, do you guys have any idea, I'm stuck!
