configuration task completes the following operations:
- It deploys the IBM Connections web content library.
- It creates the Social Content category in the portal site toolbar.
- It deploys the Personalization resource collection named Social Objects.
- It deploys the social list portlets that are provided with the social rendering package and adds them to the Social Content toolbar category. The social list portlets display different sets of social objects. An example is a list of all files that are contained in the IBM Connections community that is associated to the current page. These portlets are clones of the Web Content Viewer portlet. Users can access them from the Social Content category. The portlets are configured to copy content items into a web content page.
- It adds the wp_social_rendering theme module to the ibm.portal.80Theme only.
If you want to enable all WebSphere
Portal Version 220.127.116.11 features in a single procedure, you can use the enable-new-8001-features
configuration task. If you ran the enable-new-8001-features
configuration task before, social rendering is already enabled. In that case you do not need to follow the procedure that is described here.
To enable only social rendering by using the action-enable-social-rendering
configuration task, proceed by the following steps:
- Change to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory.
If you are using IBM z/OS®, open a UNIX System Services command prompt to change directories.
- To enable the social rendering features, run the action-enable-social-rendering configuration task as follows:
- AIX®, Linux™, HP-UX, Solaris: ./ConfigEngine.sh action-enable-social-rendering -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
- IBM i: ConfigEngine.sh action-enable-social-rendering -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
- z/OS: ./ConfigEngine.sh action-enable-social-rendering -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
- Windows™: ConfigEngine.bat action-enable-social-rendering -DPortalAdminId=user_id -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasUserid=user_id -DWasPassword=password
You might want to use the default social lists with your own custom themes. In this case, make sure that the theme profile of your custom theme contains the social rendering theme module. To add the theme module to your customized themes, you run the add-theme-modules
configuration task to add it to the theme profile.
