Welcome @stoeps.de, the blog of Christoph Stoettner

I work at Vegard IT GmbH as a senior consultant with a focus on collaboration software, Kubernetes, security and automation. I mainly deal with HCL Connections, WebSphere Application Server, Kubernetes, Ansible, Terraform and Linux.

Sometimes my daily work results in technical talks and blog articles, which you can follow here more or less regularly. You can find the presentations in the main menu under public speaking .

I created a list of tools I use regularly, most of which have been released under an open source license.

In my spare time I read a lot, test all kinds of technical software and gadgets and try to follow about 200 RSS feeds.
Here you can find a collection of them.

This is my private blog, all opinions are my own.

Since IBM Connections 6.0CR4 we can use a new newsletter format which needs still (now with HCL Connections 7) be activated separately in LotusConnections-config/notification-config.xml.

Today some users asked how they can add other users to their private communities (visible in Community catalog) without manually adding them. As we investigated the question I had a look at the old notification format.

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:

Aaron Burden: Fountain pen and a notebook

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.

So today I played with WSL2 and a Makefile to build all Asciidoctor files in a directory.

Aaron Burden: Fountain pen and a notebook

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.

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.

https://www.packtpub.com/product/the-kubernetes-workshop/9781838820756[The Kubernetes Workshop   icon:external-link[], window=_blank]:: 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.

https://mkaz.blog/working-with-vim/vimwiki/[VimWiki – Working with Vim – mkaz.blog   icon:external-link[], window=_blank]:: 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.
