Integrating WebSphere Portal with IBM Connections overview
This document describes how to integrate your IBM WebSphere Portal version 126.96.36.199 environment with your IBM Connections version 4.0 entitlements, which include Files and Profiles.
Supported hardware and software
Review the supported hardware and software list. Ensure that you are using the correct levels before you attempt to integrate IBM WebSphere Portal with IBM Connections Files and Profiles.
Prerequisites for integrating IBM WebSphere Portal with IBM Connections Files and Profiles
There are a few prerequisites that are required to successfully integrate IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections Files and Profiles.
Topology for integrating IBM WebSphere Portal with IBM Connections Files and Profiles
The topology shows the integration between IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections Files and Profiles.
Installing WebSphere Application Server and IBM Connections
IBM Connections 4.0 works with IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 188.8.131.52.
Installing and clustering WebSphere Portal version 184.108.40.206
Install IBM WebSphere Portal version 220.127.116.11 to integrate with IBM Connections version 4.0. If WebSphere Portal version 8.0.0 is installed, upgrade to version 18.104.22.168. Use the documentation that comes with the upgrade for the specific steps. Then, create a static cluster.
Enabling Single Sign On for WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections
Because IBM Connections and IBM WebSphere Portal are in two different cells, you must configure Single Sign On (SSO) between them.
Enabling SSL between WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections
Enable secure socket layer (SSL) connectivity between IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections before you attempt a search with the Social Network portlet.
Deploying the Portal Application Archives (PAA)
Additional function is required to integrate the IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Connections. First, use the Social Network portlet to integrate Connections in-context on Portal pages. Second, use the Web Application Integrator (WAI) portlet to combine the navigation between both products. Use the Portal theme to extend this navigation to include any additional function from Connections.
Removing inactive IBM Connections portlets
When you deploy the Social Network PAA file, you also deploy all the available portlets for IBM Connections. You have access to only the Files and Profiles portlets. Therefore, to avoid performance issues, you can remove the extra portlets.
Accessing Files and Profiles
There are multiple ways that you can access and use the Files and Profiles portlets within the IBM WebSphere Portal environment.
