Integrating LibreOffice with IBM Connections Cloud (Reboot)

OK this is a bit of a reboot of a blog post I published back in 2013 where I showed how to connect LibreOffice with IBM Connections and treat it as a CMIS repository.  My good friend and colleague Maurice Teeuwe fired me over an update to my blog post which highlights how to do it for LibreOffice 5.0.x.

For those using a Mac or Linux who don’t have a plugin as-such for IBM Connections in their word processor or spreadsheet then integrating LibreOffice this way gives you an easy way to open, edit, save and basically work with IBM Connections (and Cloud).  Here are Maurice’s instructions which show Windows screen shots, but the steps are the same on any platform:

Start by installing LibreOffice:

Step through the installer and then complete the installation.

Step 1: The first step in LibreOffice to getting this working is to switch on LibreOffice dialog boxes instead of using the operating system’s default dialogs. Go to Preferences, LibreOffice, Tools > Options > General and switch it on

Confirm with OK Step 2: Next, go to File, Open and when the dialog opens press the little selector button with Servers on it, shown in below:

This is where we’ll set up the CMIS location, in this example for IBM Connections Cloud:

Click the ‘Servers..’ button.  In the next dialog box specify the following: Give the destination a name, like IBM Connections Cloud.  Then choose CMIS as the Type.  In the Server Details section, under Server Type choose Lotus Live Files. EU Binding URL:

https://apps.ce.collabserv.com/files/basic/cmis/my/servicedoc

US Binding URL: https://apps.na.collabserv.com/files/basic/cmis/my/servicedoc

AP Binding URL: https://apps.ap.collabserv.com/files/basic/cmis/my/servicedoc

Next, click on the refresh button:

Enter your Connections Cloud User Credentials and click OK. You may be asked to supply a master password to store your credentials.

Do that, and then the dialog box will show your new destination. (Confirm your master password (or think of a new one if you did not have any)):

Complete the authorization request with your credentials

And browse to the document you would like to open:

Et voila…your document opens!

 

To save a document (hit save):

Browse to the Connections Cloud data store (hit save):

Thanks Maurice
