IBM Docs Viewer can open source files with syntax highlighting. This feature is default disabled, but sometimes very useful.
You need to enable it with IBM Connections Gatekeeper.
|Be aware that most of Gatekeeper settings are not officially supported by IBM and can have side effects!|
Open Gatekeeper with https://your-connections-fqhn/connections/config
Now search for
FILEVIEWER_PREVIEW_TEXT and change the value to
Now when you open an html (or other text file) from IBM Connections Files it will open a preview and after a short flickering of the document the source is highlighted.
Without that setting you just see a message like “no preview available for this” and a download option:
Gatekeeper settings can be set in real-time, so no restart of Connections is needed to enable or disable this feature. I tested the preview with html, js and css, but I think nearly everything with mime-type text is possible.
You need the admin role of the Common Application to access the gatekeeper!
