IBM Connections 5.5 CR2 released

Hi all,

IBM released CR2 for IBM Connections 5.5:

A prerequisite for CR2 is at least WAS 8.5.5 FP9 (let`s see when FP10 will be officially supported)

A general step-by-step guide installing CR2 is provided by IBM.

A new CR2 version of the Cognos wizard can be downloaded (you only need this if you directly install Cognos on a already installed CR2 Connections)

If you take a look at the Fix list, there are some nice new features (I need to install CR2 first in order to have an overview about this new stuff):

  • Implemented a setting that allows community owners to change the sharing of the root folder of a CCM Library via a sharing panel and/or sharing dialog very similar to the existing features for folder and file sharing. This feature is enabled by the setting <librarySharingPanel>true</librarySharingPanel> to the library-config.xml
  • Implemented a method so Administrators could remove obsolete widgets, like Media Gallery, from communities
  • Improvements to the maximum size settings for uploading a file
  • Added Device Passcode Configuration Support
  • Include type restriction information from files-config in mobile config feed
  • Added the “Open in Mobile” link for File Comment / Community Status Comment in notifications
  • General improvements for TDISOL

as there are TDISOL improvements you should also replace your TDISOL with the newest version in your IBM Connections folder.

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

IBM Connections – How to switch to a custom global unique ID for users

IBM Connections – How to switch to a custom global unique ID for users Hi, many of our todays support cases is related to non-working profiles in IBM Connections. If users change their name, switch from one to another location or simply get a new account their profile in IBM Connections might get inactivated because the hash key between LDAP and database has changed. There are three possible hash keys: UID: Often a bad choice, as this might change eMail: Also a bad choice GUID: Unique I

IBM Connections – add additional login attribute

IBM Connections – add additional login attribute Hi, last week I got the question if it is possible to use another login attribute for IBM Connections than uid, cn or email. Yes, this is possible and can be done very easy. It just needs some small adjustments (I assume that you already extended your LDAP schema and that the custom attribute is available in LDAP!!): 1. Open a wsadmin session ./wsadmin -lang jacl 2. Make a custom login attribute from LDAP known to the PersonAccount entity:

IBM Connections – Set read-only access to CCM libraries Hi, we are in the middle of several migrations to IBM Connections 5.5 and most of our customers come up with the question: What do I need CCM for if I can use nested folders in Files now? Many customers decide to manually migration CCM libraries to Files… This time a customer asked us if it is possible to set access to libraries to read-only so that no new files or folders are added to CCM. This is possible using the following
