Since I cannot reopen
LPS-12203 i will create a seperate issue for this.
When you publish an event from a portlet it will never be received by any of the portlets defined in the layout.static.portlets.all property in portlet.properties
LPS-12203 was resolved no static portlet would receive events, now only portlets defined in layout.static.portlets.all do not receive events
I will attach a patch for the issue
