Brainfart from me! ssl_enabled=true is really, really important even though the service is disabled!!
Thu, Nov 2nd 2017 7:58p   Robert Farstad
OMG, I just had a huge brainfart!! I had an issue on a Connections 5.5 CR3 site where the option to get notified about "Libraries" was in the GUI. But the problem was that ECM has never been installed on this system, nor on a previously migrated system!! I also had the Indexing tasks set to "all_configured" which gave me indexing errors in SystemOut.log: [11/1/17 23:16:02:974 CET] 0000170f InitialWorkFa E com.ibm.connections.search.index.process.initial.InitialWorkFactory createCrawlingW

I got a nice email yesterday evening from the Social Connections team, letting me know that my abstract was accepted. My session has the title "We hired hackers to hack us; A case study about cloud-based authentication and security in IBM Connections" In this session I´ll be talking about a case study where I will show how we (Item Consulting) integrated the cloud-based third-party authentication mechanism, Auth0, into IBM Connections, and you will learn about the hack attempt and what the

IBM Connections Desktop Plugin folder sync issue - now solved
Thu, Sep 14th 2017 8:06a   Robert Farstad
I had an issue with the IBM Connections Desktop Plugin. IBM introduced the "My Drive" and the ability to sync folders and sub-folders some months ago, and this seemed to be working fine when I connected the plugin to on-prem installations of Connections. I was able to sync folders, files and sub-folders. But then, I attempted to connect to the IBM Connections Cloud. Here I was able to sync files, but when I attempted to sync folders, those just would'nt appear in the "My Drive" section o

IBM Docs 2.0 CR2 upgrade issue with the Conversion app. Deja vu with a twist.

We´ve seen it before on CR1 for Docs 2.0, first discovered by Roberto Boccarodo (See this blog post about that issue), and now we see it again, with a twist... Here´s the output of the attempted upgrade: And the iFixInstall.log file says: WASX7017E: Exception received while running file “../execwas.py”; exception information: com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: CWWSY0102E: Target with name docsserver.yourdomain.com was not found.

TDI / SDI - Connect to Active Directory over SSL - How to
Fri, Feb 10th 2017 4:51p   Robert Farstad
I mostly write this post as a reminder to my self the next time I have a similar need. I had a case where I had to connect to Active Directory to be able to create users and set passwords on that user, off course, using TDI. The AD administrator gave me a .pfx format of the certificate which is stored in AD. Installing this file in Windows is easy. Just double click it and install. Then, starting the "certmgr.msc" from Start - Run inn Windows, I was able to right click the cert, selected "

IBM Connections 5.5 - Make top header/menu sticky
Thu, Jan 19th 2017 12:34a   Robert Farstad
I had this challenge given to me from a customer; "Can you make the top menu/header always visible when scrolling the pages downwards in Connections?" Originally, my answer was NO, because this is not an out-of-the-box option. But, being the html/css enthusiast as I am, I started looking into it. I played around a bit with it in Firefox using Firebug. And I noticed that when I put in a "position: fixed" css property on the correct Divs, I was actually getting somewhere. Along the way, I t

IBM Connections 5.5 - change the name of "My Organization Communities"
Wed, Jan 18th 2017 5:20a   Robert Farstad
I noticed a new feature In Connections 5.5. The menu item for "Public Communities" has changed to "My Organization Communities". This is something we´ve all seen. In CNX5.0:In CNX 5.5: What I didn´t know, was that there´s now a possibility to change the name of "My Organization" to be of your choosing. There´s a new configuration in LotusConnections-config.xml called " This you can change to The recipe to do this is here: http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYGQH_5.5.0/a

IBM Connections - Force setting the "share with external" option on files.
Mon, Dec 19th 2016 9:23p   Robert Farstad
Open for debate, please comment if you have any insight in why this might not be a good thing to do. When you upload a file in IBM Connections Cloud, the option "Files can be shared with people external to my organization" is automatically set for you: Which is a good thing. In On-Prem versions of IBM Connections (I tested this in Connections 5.5 CR2.), this option is left unchecked, so in order for you to be able to share this file with external users, you have to remember to set this EVE
