Administer the News repositoryYou administer the News repository using scripts accessed using the wsadmin client. Changes to News configuration settings require node synchronization and a restart of the Home page server before they take effect.
Events are generated by the different IBM Connections applications whenever an activity occurs in the system. Information about these events is stored in the News repository, and the Home page application pulls data from the repository to display only the events that are relevant to a particular user on that user's Home page. You can configure News configuration settings to control how the information that the Home page receives from the News repository is stored and administered.
