This one cracked me up. No pun intended.

Yesterday I updated a Connections environment to the latest CFix. In other environments I found that PushNotification Cluster was not started after the update, like described in the knowledge base document PushNotification broken after upgrading to CFix.65CR1.2201 . In this update the application and cluster were running, but not working at all. Browser console.log showed the error:

Error connecting to push auth sync service /servic/info: RequestError: Unable to load https://cnx-fqdn/push/service/info status: 500

console.log error after installing the CFix

So I tweaked the workaround from the knowledge base document above. I used the find command with the option -exec which is great for running commands on all found files. So we can search and move the files in one step.

  1. On each Application Server Node, go to this directory:
# <WAS_HOME>/profiles/<profile_name>/installedApps/ConnectionsCell/PushNotification.ear
cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/installedApps/ConnectionsCell/PushNotification.ear
  1. Move files
# Create a backup directory
mkdir ~/backup_pns
# Find and move the files
find -name \*slf4j\*1.7.5\* -exec mv {} ~/backup_pns \;
  1. Restart the PushNotification application or PushNotification Cluster

I created a git repository with some smaller CSS files to fix some annoyances within HCL Connections.

I started with this to prevent Orient Me to load fonts from external URLs or Elasticsearch Metrics to break the UI on larger screens. These issues are solved after the last updates I got from support, but Blogs and Tailored Experience Wizard can be improved with some simple rules.

When I test topics with the different Connections editors (CKEditor, Textbox.io and TinyMCE), I always used multiple users in my test environment, installed the editor selector ear and then gave each of the test users a different editor. That’s easy with the different j2ee roles, but I always had to use multiple browsers or sandboxes to see them next to each other.
