Abstract: Since several years IA2 (Italian Center for Astronomical Archive) develops and hosts web portals for accessing various astronomical archives. The experience gained over the years (Knapic et al. 2012) allowed to recognize recurrent architectural patterns and common requirements of all these interfaces, leading to develop APOGEO (Automatic POrtal GEneratOr). APOGEO consists in a set of Java EE tools that allow to generate portals in a standardized way, after a portal administrator has performed an aided configuration process. A portal allows users to query the archive and download its files, guaranteeing proper data access policies. APOGEO architecture is VO-compliant.
