Since the update to the new HCL Connections Community Card-Based Overview (Connections 6.0 CR4) I search for a way to hide the button "Create Community" from users without the role "Community-Creator". This was always possible in the earlier versions of Connections, but the button was shown always since the update. During the year I mostly forgot about it, but yesterday I opened a case with HCL Connections Support and got immediatly following answer: There is a new gatekeeper flag, CATALOG_CARD_UPDATED, which was introduced in IC6.0CR5 to help enhance the community card based view. This will need to be set to false to address this issue.

I write most of my documents (blog posts, documentation, recipes and so on) with Asciidoctor. Everything is organized in Git repositories. During GPN 19 (Gulaschprogrammiernacht) I showed how to build html and pdf with a Gitlab CI/CD pipeline. That’s quite handy, but lots of documents I build, I just need locally.

Some weeks ago I wrote about an workaround to prevent TDI from deleting the touchpoint status in HCL Connections. During some research on TDI I found Mapping fields manually in the HCL Connections documentations. This document describes how to add additional fields to the TDI synchronisation. On point 11 I found something new for me. You can add additional fields and then add the content with an Javascript function for example. Then TDI does not make an LDAP call to get the attribute from there, instead it uses the function. So an additional workaround for the Touchpoint state problem is to add the five fields defined in conf/LotusConnections-conf/tdi-profiles-config.

Last week I didn’t find very useful links to read or articles to share. This week I read more books, so a recommendation for a book this week and two articles with awk basics. The Kubernetes Workshop Still preparing for CKA, so I read a lot around Kubernetes. This book is brand new and the first chapters are already useful. I think it’s more detailled than the books I read about Kubernetes before. Bug Bytes #94 - Breaking Symfony apps Again a great collection of things worth reading all around bug bounty and pentesting.

VimWiki – Working with Vim – mkaz.blog I switched for daily notes and diary entries to Vimwiki. I like the fast access and combine it with gollum to display in the browser. In the article you find shortcuts and tipps for working with the todo function. Dockerfile Security Best Practices - Cloudberry Engineering Container security is a broad problem space and there are many low hanging fruits one can harvest to mitigate risks. A good starting point is to follow some rules when writing Dockerfiles. How many shards should I have in my Elasticsearch cluster?
