Today i installed Kudos at a customer site. As always i come to the point to add the Leaderboard Widget to Connections Homepage, so i mapped my user in ISC – Applications – Homepage – Map User roles to the Admin Role. The existing entry for wasadmin (a non ldap user) was still present after adding my account.

I logged in to Connections Homepage, but Administration Tab was missing. When i call the Administration Link https://connections.customersite.com/homepage/admin/openAdminPage.action i get a not authorized message. Restarting homepage didn’t solve the issue.

After some tests i removed the local wasuser from admin role and logged in again. And voilà i got a administration tab. Don’t know why this happened, i’m sure that i have other installations where i get a administration tab with a local user. I will investigate this the next days.

Last week I played around with the HCL Connections documentation to backup Elasticsearch in the article Backup Elasticsearch Indices in Component Pack .

In the end I found that I couldn’t get the snapshot restored and that I have to run a command outside of my Kubernetes cluster to get a snapshot on a daily basis. That’s not what I want.

During a migration from Cognos Metrics to Elasticsearch Metrics, I had some issues with the index. So I wanted to create a backup of the already migrated data and start over from scratch.

The official documentation has an article on the topic: Backing up and restoring data for Elasticsearch-based components , but I had to slightly adjust the commands to get a successful snapshot.

In the last few years, I have had issues with application servers using a large amount of CPU and even hanging application servers running the Tiny Spellchecking service. It ended with disabled spellchecking in the Tiny Editors’ config.js.
