Configure the IBM
® Connections Profiles server to support dynamic feeds to bring data from Connections to the outlook client via the Microsoft
® Outlook Social Connector.
The Outlook Social Connector (OSC) provider for IBM
Connections supports displaying user activity feeds even when a contact does not belong to a person's network. The OSC architecture uses hashed email addresses (MD5 or SHA1) to search for activity feeds for users that are not in a person's network. To support this feature the Profiles server schema must be extended and populated with additional data. The schema must be augmented with an new extended attribute, hashEmail
, and for each user in the directory the extended attribute must be populated with a hash of the user's email address. This section describes the necessary steps to accomplish this.
