CCM posts “wrong” content to Activity Stream

Hi all,

last week our support team had to deal with a strange issue that occurred when using IBM Connections libraries.

From time to time the Activity Stream showed updates from library files that have not been touched for weeks…

Example:

A file had been uploaded in December 2015 into a library. And it has definitely never been updated like this! Now in February an entry showed up:

“User XYZ updated the file XYZ” …

or “User XYZ mentioned you in ‘FILEXYZ.PPT’ ”

Digging deeper into this, I remembered a problem with the j2calias used by Filenet used to send data to the IBM Connections Activity stream.

The user or the password was set incorrectly so that Filenet was not able to post any content into the activity stream. Now it is interesting what Filenet does in such a case… it stores those entries within its own FNOS database (kind of a buffer so that those messages do not get lost)

After fixing the problem with the j2calias Filenet was able to post again into the stream. The news application reads those entries from the database and processes it. The problem is that those entries were too old and the timestamp is used when the news applications reads the data from the database table. In a way this seems pretty buggy to me… But if you know how it works there is an easy fix for this:

Delete the old entries from database using the following procedure:

– Stop IBM Connections
– Backup the Filenet databases (FNOS / FNGCD)
– Execute the following SQL so that you remove all rows from the table LCUSER.UT_CLBACTIVITYSTREAMEVENTQUE except the row OBJECT_ID=”00000000000000000000000000000000″

db2 "DELETE FROM LCUSER.UT_CLBACTIVITYSTREAMQUEUEENT WHERE ENTRY_STATUS = 2 AND OBJECT_ID <> x'00000000000000000000000000000000'"

The problem description originally comes from a great blog post written by Charlie Price –> link

This post was about mass mail notifications sent from CCM. But this perfectly fits  our problem and solved it!! Thanks for this 😉

IBM Connections 6 – Following and Followers blank
Wed, Oct 25th 2017 8:42a   GIS Techblog
IBM Connections 6 – Following and Followers blank Hi, during the last weeks we had to deal with a strange problem in an IBM Connections 6 environment. The system was migrated from IC 5.5 to IC 6 and live for about 4 weeks when suddenly the following problem occurred: Neither users that I follow nor followers were shown in the UI. Despite installing the latest Fixes no bigger changes have been performed on the system. I was able to follow a user: Looks good: Then opening “Following

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
Fri, Jul 7th 2017 9:52a   GIS Techblog
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
Wed, May 31st 2017 2:52p   GIS Techblog
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…

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
