The last IBM Connections 6.0 CR4 introduced the new feature "Sharing Files via Link". A quite handy way to share files with users by link. Just open the file, go to sharing and select "Share by Link". "Share by Link" makes it easy to share and grant read access to personal and Community files. — What's New in IBM Connections Cumulative Release 4 We tested the feature and it works like a charm, but… Everybody who gets this link, can download the shared file (and share the link with others) Even in restricted communities everybody with editor access can create the link
A lot of people don’t like to store credentials in mobile apps or browsers. A good workaround is the usage of OAuth 2.0 tokens, but the application needs to support it and the server you’re talking to too. The IBM Connections Mobile App can use it for authentication. OAauth2 can be used directly with WebSphere Application Server and Connections 6.0. There are no special OAuth servers or applications needed! The Documentation at IBM was a little bit confusing for me, there are lots of sidenotes, but you just need to do following steps, to use OAuth 2.
Last week I attended Social Connections 14 in Berlin, the event location had a great view and weather was great. I had the chance to do a session on "Kubernetes Basics for IBM Connections Admins". The session slides are attached on that post and there will be a video recording available some day at https://www.panagenda.com. Kubernetes Basics for IBM Connections Admins On each event all attendees do a group picture, thanks to Hogne (Elfworld): The event was well organized (as always) of the awesome team Wannes, Maria, Simon, Nico, Martin and Jan.
This week starts with Admincamp in Gelsenkirchen. Thanks Rudi Knegt and team for this awesome event! The conference or lets name it camp was real fun. In the end I did three sessions and a workshop. You can find download links to all slides and used files in this article or on https://stoeps.de/speaking/2018/. I learned and heared a lot of interesting stuff around IBM Notes, IBM Connections and Sametime. You can get most of the session slides through the Admincamp agenda. Save the date! Next https://admincamp.de will take place from 25. to 27. March 2019 here in Gelsenkirchen. Here can you find my session slides (all talks were held in english), but maybe you can run them through deepl or Google Translate.
Today I learned a new lesson during troubleshooting a IBM Connections System. I updated to 6.0 CR2, updated WebSphere to FP13, last fixpack for Docs and so on. You will ask if I added IFP88438 to the list, be sure that I installed this fix which reanables the root element in Federated Repositories. Have a look at WAS 8.5.5 FP12 breaks Domino "root" base entry setting for more details. Then one of the two deployments showed strange behavior with Activities. On the Activitystream I only got an orange error symbol instead of the Todo list and when I opened Activities directly I got an empty page.
