All of the Atom feeds and collections produced by the IBM® Connections API contain an Atom generator tag. This generator tag can be used to determine the version of IBM Connections that produced the corresponding feed or collection.

The generator tag used by IBM Connections has a URI attribute with the value "http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn" and a version attribute with a value that indicates the IBM Connections release that produced it. The actual contents of the generator tag are specific to the component that produced the feed or collection, for example:

<generator version="3.0.1.0" uri="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn">

IBM Connections - Blogs

</generator>


The possible values of the version attribute are shown in this table. Future versions can have different version values.
