Use Atom to retrieve a feed of the latest updates made to all of the installed IBM® Connections applications.

Important note: The News Repository APIs have been deprecated from the 4.0 release. These APIs are still functional for backward compatibility reasons - but no new feature is surfaced through these APIs. For any new development work, please refer to the OpenSocial Activity Stream APIs.



Use Atom to retrieve a feed of the latest updates made to all of the installed IBM® Connections applications.


Retrieving the saved stories service document
When you are viewing the latest updates listed on the Home page, you can mark an update as something you would like to read later by saving it as a saved story. A person's saved stories are listed in a collection. If you plan to update that collection using the resources made available through the Atom APIs, you must first retrieve the user's saved stories service document.

Getting News repository feeds
Use the Atom subscription API to retrieve resources from the latest updates made to all of the installed applications and displayed in the Home page.

Activity Streams extensions to News repository feeds
Most of the News repository feeds are extended with Activity Streams formatted data. Use Activity Stream format and data to leverage News feeds in third-party clients.

Working with stories
Using the Atom Publishing Protocol, also known as AtomPub, you can save stories from the list of latest updates that you want to read later, and you can remove stories from the collection of saved stories.
