You can configure the LotusConnections-config.xml
file to include a link to IBM
™ on the Profiles business card. Users can then click the Quickr
link in another person's business card to open that person's personal file library in Lotus Quickr
Before you begin
- To find out what versions of Lotus Quickr are supported, see Detailed system requirements for IBM Connections.
- When you add a Quickr link to the Profiles business card in a Lotus Quickr for Lotus Domino® deployment, the link only works with Entry places. The link does not work with regular places. The Lotus Quickr Domino administrator must run the qptool to create Entry places for users on the server; users cannot create Entry places for themselves. For information about how to create Lotus Quickr entry places, go to: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/lqkrdom/v8/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.lotus.quickr.dominov82.doc/config/qp_inst_entry_create_places.html
Note: When adding a Quickr link to the business card, if you have enabled SSL in IBM Connections by setting forceconfidentialcommunication to true in the LotusConnections-config.xml file, you should also enable SSL on the Lotus Quickr server so that the link will work when users access IBM Connections using HTTPS.
- To edit configuration files, you must use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.
About this task
The Profiles business card serves as a interface that other applications can leverage to integrate with IBM
Connections. You can enable integration with Lotus Quickr
for Lotus Domino
in the inline and pop-up business cards by enabling a service reference to the LotusConnections-config.xml
file. Users can then click the Quickr
link in another person's business card to access that person's public files and the files that they've shared with the user in Lotus Quickr
To enable a Lotus Quickr
link on the business card, complete the following steps.
- Start the wsadmin client from the following directory of the system on which you installed the Deployment Manager:
is the WebSphere
® Application Server installation directory and <dm_profile_root>
is the Deployment Manager profile directory, typically dmgr01.
You must start the client from this directory or subsequent commands that you enter do not execute correctly.
- Use the wsadmin client to access and check out the IBM Connections configuration files.
- Enter the following command to access the IBM Connections configuration file: execfile("connectionsConfig.py")
If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, you must pick the node where the file is stored. This information is not used by the wsadmin client when you are making configuration changes.
- Enter the following command to check out the IBM Connections configuration files:
- <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied and are stored while you make changes to them. Use forward slashes to separate directories in the file path, even if you are using the Microsoft Windows operating system.
AIX and Linux only: The directory must grant write permissions or the command does not run successfully.
- <cell_name> is the name of the WebSphere Application Server cell hosting the IBM Connections application. This argument is case-sensitive, so type it with care. If you do not know the cell name, type the following command while in the wsadmin command processor:print AdminControl.getCell()
- AIX or Linux:LCConfigService.checkOutConfig("/opt/temp","foo01Cell01")
- Microsoft Windows:LCConfigService.checkOutConfig("c:/temp","foo01Cell01")
- Open the LotusConnections-config.xml file with a text editor, and enable the quickr service reference in the file, replacing <www.myquickrserver.mycompany.com> with the name of your server, and setting "enabled" and "ssl_enabled" to true as follows:
After making changes, you must check the configuration files back in, and you must do so during the same wsadmin session in which you checked them out for the changes to take effect. See Applying common configuration property changes for information about how to save and apply your changes.
