Symptoms of the issue include receiving messages containing garbled sender names. Opening the message and replying results in a number of embedded garbled characters in the header. You can

If you migrated from Version 8.0.0.1, the default portal behavior was to log you out when you switched from a protected to unprotected URI. In Version 8.5, the default behavior is to keep you logged in. If you do not want to get logged out, you can enable the Version 8.5 default behavior. Procedure Access the WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console. Go to Resources > Resource Environment > Resource Environment Providers. Click WP ConfigService. Click Custom Properties under the Add

How to resolve synchronization issues after upgrading to IBM Traveler 9.0.1.18 (or higher)
Fri, Sep 8th 2017 7:38p   Kenio Carvalho
IBM Traveler 9.0.1.18 enabled by default a feature that allows Traveler to “Run as a User” instead of as a server. This feature resolves several long standing issues with accessing the user’s data as the server ID. The last point above may cause sync issues for mobile users. If the access controls are inadvertently set to values that restrict individual users, but do not restrict the Traveler server, then users that could sync when running as the Traveler server ID might not be

Watson Conversation – Gathering information with slots
Fri, Jun 23rd 2017 1:17p   Kenio Carvalho
Add slots to a dialog node to gather multiple pieces of information from a user within that node. Slots collect information at the users’ pace. Details they provide upfront are saved, and the bot asks only for the details they do not. You can think of slots as the chat bot version of a web form in which users must fill out required fields before they can submit the form. Similarly, slots prevent the flow of conversation from moving on to a new subject until the required values are provided
