Hi,

right after IBM published a new version of the IBM Connections Desktop Plug-ins (now Version 15.8) for Windows,there is a new version for all Mac Users (including me) available as well. 😉

There are no new features, but IBM fixed some bug in this new version. So you should not hesitate to give this new version a try 😉

For all of you, who have not been working with this software:

IBM® Connections for Mac provides the following features:

  • Use sync to keep selected files synchronized with exact copies on the server.
  • View file sync properties, versions, and sharing information.
  • Share files with other people.
  • Receive notifications when sync conflicts are detected, new files are added, or server status changes.
  • Resolve conflicts using the conflict resolution user interface.
  • Support for multiple sync accounts.
  • Support for IBM Connections Social Cloud and on premises
  • TAM and Siteminder authentication bundles for on premises deployments
  • Advanced user preferences – new tab in Preferences to set logging options, enable beta features, and specify file types to ignore during sync.
  • Administrator policy support – to set preferences and policies controlling how users interact with IBM Connections for Mac.  (Documented here Policies and preferences for IBM Connections for Mac)
  • Support for Share with Communities

IBM® Connections for Mac supports:

  • IBM Connections Social Cloud (see also Connections Cloud Limitations section below)
  • IBM Connections 5.0
  • Mac OSX 10.8
  • Mac OSX 10.9
  • Mac OSX 10.10

You can download the plugins for your Mac here –> Link

Have fun with the new features and a nice day.

Christian

Exchange integration into WebSphere Portal (SSO – Kerberos)
Tue, Sep 26th 2017 12:03p   GIS Techblog
Exchange integration into WebSphere Portal (SSO – Kerberos) During the last years working with Portal I had several challenges with WebSphere Portals HTTP Outbound Proxy (aka. Ajax Proxy) in terms of authenticating backend calls to various other systems. What we`ve done so far in terms of SSO / backend authentication: – Authenticating using LTPAToken – Authenticating using SAML – Authenticating using SPNEGO / Kerberos (this was a new one for me) The challenge this time

User provisioning for IBM Connections Cloud – You have the choice
Mon, Aug 28th 2017 1:42p   GIS Techblog
User provisioning for IBM Connections Cloud – You have the choice Customers who use IBM Cloud for Connections, Sametime or other applications face the problem to manage their cloud accounts. For some single users you can use the Web frontend to add or change user accounts or to assign subscriptions and licenses to users. But in real world scenarios it is not possible to manage thousands of users manually or to keep them synchronized with an on-prem user repository or LDAP. This can be handled

SAML & IBM Connections 5.5 – not a dream team
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 7:45a   GIS Techblog
Hi all, last week we had to fight with an activation of SAML on a IC 5.5 CR3 environment. The setup was: IBM Connections 5.5 CR3 as test instance ADFS Server 3.0 (I know… it is only tested with ADFS 2.0 – but works with 3.0 too) We followed the instructions from the IBM Connections Knowledge Center. Smooth setup everything standard procedure. When testing this setup, the redirect to the IdP was initiated. After logging into the IdP the browser was redirected to IBM Connections ACS

IBM Docs – Migration from DB2 –> ORACLE

IBM Docs – Migration from DB2 –> ORACLE Hi, within our last big project, we had the challenge to transfer the IBM Docs database from DB2 to ORACLE. Within this database comments and other document related data is stored. Officially there is no script available to perform this move using DBT (remove constraints / transfer / reapply constraints). We looked into the database and figured out how to perform this task using DBT – so we are not dependent on any other products. We m

IBM Connections – trouble adding additional nodes

IBM Connections – trouble adding additional nodes Hi all, we are currently involved in a project where we installed a 1 node IBM Connections 6 Cluster and later added a second node to the cell. So far so good… Everything that needs to be done after adding the second node is described here … Everything? Yes, mainly… but not in the mandatory details as I think! Missing custom properties and other settings might result in non-functional nodes. Especially not setting httpSess

Wikis content not accessible… Hi, it`s been quite a long time; many projects at the moment so that blogging needs to wait Last week we had a very interesting problem at one customer’s environment. When accessing a Wiki, the page was displayed blank – no content was available. Browsing to older versions of this wikis worked. The error in the log: Parsing error… Wikis content (the body) gets store in the filesystem as xml files. If you access a Wiki there is a XML parser

Automatic WebSphere plugin modification II – PowerShell for Windows
Thu, Dec 1st 2016 6:54p   GIS Techblog
Automatic WebSphere plugin modification II – PowerShell for Windows Hi, some months ago I published a shell script to automatically modify the Primary / BackupServer definition in a WebSphere plugin-cfg.xml file. As we have several Windows customers we decided to transfer this script to PowerShell so that it is also useable for a Windows Cluster installation. My colleague Jan Bruns did a great job implementing this script. It basically works the same way as the Linux script: modifywasplug

IBM Connections Docs – file preview not possible for some CCM pdf files Hi all, last week we had trouble in a customer environment using the file preview functionality for some pdf files (only those that were uploaded using CCM). Instead of a preview the message was displayed: At the same time we saw the following warning in the log: The mime-type was set to “image/pcl” instead of “application/pdf”… this mime-type is not supported by IBM Docs File viewer. We had to dig deep into th
