Add custom libraries to IBM
® Connections communities to work with documents and folders on Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems, IBM FileNet
® P8 and IBM
Content Manager. For example, when you add a new document to a custom library you are adding the document to the ECM server.
This section describes how to configure IBM® Lotus® Connections with the following ECM systems:
- IBM FileNet P8 4.5.1 or later
- IBM DB2 Content manager V8.4.2 or later
For custom libraries to work you must install the following services:
The rest of the topics of this section describe configuration steps for the Connections server only. For documentation on installing and configuring the ECM systems, see the "Related reference" links at the bottom of this topic.

Enable custom libraries in IBM
Connections so that community owners can add custom library widgets to their communities.
Configuring single sign-on with ECM servers
Configure single sign-on between IBM
Connections and ECM servers. With single sign-on enabled, users won't need to log in to IBM
Connections and the ECM server separately; logging in to IBM
Connections will also give them access to the ECM server.
Enabling custom library views
Views are queries that return a list of documents. Views are defined and managed on the ECM server. You can make views available to custom library widget users.
Disabling profiles in custom libraries
You might want to disable profiles in custom libraries in environments where many users do not have email addresses, or where many ECM email addresses do not match profiles email addresses.
