I read an open APAR on IBM Connections today (login required!): LO73245


TDI’s doesn’t allow us to import departmentNumbers longer than 16 chars, although the database schema supports values up to 24 chars.

And as local solution:

worked around the issue with creating a custom field

I had a very similar problem with validation of LDAP Search filter (which is saved in employee-table too) and searched longer to solve this (I set sync_store_source_url=false), but the real error was like here in

When you open (in your tdisol directory) you found following:


So here is the validation error and not in the database! You can solve the APAR without using a customField, when you set deptNumber to 24.

On one of my IBM Connections Site i had a problem with directory search (better the typeahead search). When we searched single characters no business cards are displayed. I use Firebug for Chrome here and you see, that the search gets an result back from Connections, but no business cards are displayed. When i open this get statement i get a list of profile documents in JSON format: In this case i a got a list of about 20 User profiles. When i search a little bit more detailed i get an error of a Javascript, which should interpret the JSON list.

Today i made a new assembly line in Tivoli Directory Integrator. I iterate Shortname and Filename (with path) of a jpeg-photo in a csv-file. A java class converts this pic to an jpeg binary (class returns this binary array) and then tdi write this value to domino ldap in jpegphoto attribute. Works great, only the csv-file is a little bit of work, but it is a great way to add lots of pictures to sametime profiles. Next step is to include an connector to Lotus Connections profiles.

I showed, in several slides and sessions, how you can use the search-admin role in the search application of HCL Connections for troubleshooting and reviewing some key configurations.

In several environments, my user or other administrative users have this role, just to access the link to /search/serverStatus for example.
